With much sadness in our hearts, we announce that Chuck Peter Mahlik passed away on Sunday May 8, 2022 with his brother Bill at his side.
Chuck was Don and Jane Mahlik’s first child, born on November 2,1951 in Two Rivers during a massive snowstorm. His legendary birth may have shaped his pioneering spirit and thirst for adventure. Throughout his life he blazed trails of discovery and always took care of others coming up behind him. He was a born leader who was a mentor to many and a friend to all.
Chuck graduated from Roncalli High School in 1969 and helped lead the Jets to their first state championship. Chuck became a master plumber and founded his own business “Mahlik’s Plumbing” which he operated in the Two Rivers area for decades along with his associate Francis. He was known for his quality work and friendly approach.
When Chuck wasn’t plumbing, he could be found socializing around town and spending time outdoors. He walked Neshotah Beach with his dog Stinker Pot in the summers; planning hunting and or fishing trips with his brothers, especially his brother Chris; biked and hiked all over the county; hunted in northern Wisconsin; but fishing was his true passion. He led his brothers on fly-in fishing trips into the Canadian wilderness, but more often than not he was out catching Walleye on Green Bay. Memories of Chuck’s radiant smile, kind heart, and contagious laugh soothe us in his absence.
Survivors include his mother Jane Mahlik and three sisters, Tricia Nelson, Marge (Jim) Erickson, and Sue (Jose) Garcia, all residing in Two Rivers. His sister-in-law, Kathy Mahlik living in Manitowoc. Three Brothers, Dale (Peggy) Mahlik, Clintonville; Bill (Cathi) Mahlik, Fond du Lac; and Chris (Jodi) Mahlik, Marinette. And his special friend Brenda Vanness and her family residing in Mishicot. Chuck was preceded in death by his Dad and Brother; Dave.
