Charles ‘Chuck’ Tudor Jr., 77

| July 6, 2022 1:00 AM

Chuck Tudor Jr. died June 18, 2022, with his family by his side in Silverdale, Washington.

At his request no service will be held. Mr. Tudor will be buried with his parents in Whitefish.

Chuck was born Aug. 5, 1944, in Whitefish, to Charles Sr. and Dorothy (Hazen). Chuck spent most of his early life in Whitefish, attending Whitefish High School and courting his soon-to-be bride Janice Arvidson.

Mr. Tudor married Janice on July 31, 1964, in a San Diego double wedding with their dear friends Laramie and Rheta Joubert. The Tudors moved to Richland, Washington, where Chuck became a railroad lineman. In 1972 the Tudor family moved to Lynnwood, Washington when Chuck was accepted into the police academy. He was then hired by the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office as a patrol officer and after 20 years retired from there in 1995 as a major. Chuck also served in the National Guard from 1962 to 1968.

Retirement found Chuck busy with grandkids (he was affectionately known as Crappa), volunteering at the Red Cross, taking some snowbird trips in their motor home, and even a job with the Bank of America. Chuck was a lover of cars of all kinds, he spent many hours restoring and showing his cars in car shows and took an annual trip with his car buddies to Hot August Nights in Reno, Nevada.

Chuck spent more than 48 years in Lynnwood, Washington, until he and Janice moved to Poulsbo, Washington, to be closer to their kids and grandkids. If you were to ask Chuck today what he is most of proud of it’s certain he would say his kids and grandkids.

He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Janice; sister and brother-in-law, Donna and Ken Madden; daughter and son-in-law, Marnie and Kelly Clark; son, Charles Tudor; and grandkids Mackenzie Clark, 28, Riley Tudor, 26, Drew Clark, 24, Madison Tudor, 23, and Rory Clark, 16.

Condolences may be sent to 18811 Fourth Ave., Poulsbo, WA 98370.

Arrangements entrusted to The Stone Chapel Poulsbo Mortuary.
