David Kice may have been born in St. Louis, but he was at home in the American Southwest.

“He wouldn’t describe himself as being from St. Louis,” said Kice’s brother-in law, Monty Kilburn. “He would say he’s from New Mexico or from Santa Fe … he was committed to the people, the community and the area.”

Kice, who served as an FBI special agent in Santa Fe for 12 years, died July 1 after suffering a heart attack, said his wife, Becky Kilburn.
