Jean-Robert Tice | Obituary


John Robert Tice, 69, of Quarryville, returned home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, January 25, 2022. Born in West Grove, he was the son of the late Bobby Jack and Mary (Pugh) Tice. He was the beloved husband of Jerelyn (Hostetter) Tice for over 47 years.

John graduated in 1970 from Solanco High School. He was a machinist for TE Connectivity at Mount Joy. He enjoyed going to auctions, coaching parish league softball, and building floats for Solanco Fair baby parades. John was a former member of the New Providence Church of God, where he taught Sunday school and led the youth group. He was currently attending Wesley Church in Quarryville. John loved to laugh and was known for his fun, easy-going personality. He treasured his time with his family, especially his grandchildren, and he certainly knew how to cook a great meal.

In addition to his wife, John is survived by 3 children: Justin, husband of Amanda Tice of Quarryville; Jordan, husband of Kelly Tice of New Providence; and Jillian Tice of Quarryville. Also survived are 6 grandchildren: Julianna, Molly, Evan, Amelia, Colton and Maxton; siblings: Donald (Lydia) Tice, Rebecca (Mike) Hannemann, Daniel (MaryAnn) Tice and Laurie (Doug) Rebert. He was also the cherished uncle of several nieces and nephews. John was predeceased by a sister, Mr. Christine Tice.
