Obituary: Charles Frank Tice

April 14, 1951 – Oct. 7, 2023

Charles “Chuck” Tice, 72, of Sturgeon Bay died suddenly on Oct. 7, 2023. He was born in Sturgeon Bay on April 14, 1951, to Robert and Dorothy (Wnuk) Tice and was married to Jean Schack on Sept. 8, 1973, at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Sturgeon Bay.

Chuck was a carpenter all of his life. He worked at Bay Ship, and then opened up Tice Cabinet and Carpentry. He was an outdoorsman and loved shooting trap, hunting, landscaping, and gardening as well as spending time at his cabin in Pembine. Chuck served on the Sevastopol Town Board for many years and was known to be a perfectionist in everything he did. His attitude was, “if you wanted it done right; you should do it yourself.”

Chuck will be dearly missed by his wife Jean; 4 brothers Larry (Diane) Tice, Tom (Nancy) Tice, Bob (Gail) Tice, and Jon (Laura) Tice; 1 sister Betty (Scott) Rockendorf; sister-in-law Jill (Ken) Sternard. He was preceded in death by his parents; sister Judy Kannenberg and his infant brother.

Memorial services will be at 2 pm Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2023, at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church with Rev. Joel Sauer officiating. Visitation will be at the church on Tuesday from noon until the time of service. The family wishes that instead of sending flowers, please plant a tree in Chuck’s memory.
