Charles “Chuck” J. Shiock, 67, died peacefully in his sleep in the early hours of December 3, 2023 in his home in Bismarck, ND surrounded by family after a three month battle with lung cancer.

Chuck was born in Punxsutawney, PA on March 31, 1956. He was the child of Carl (Hap) and Helen (Krempasky) Shiock.

Chuck married the love of his life Teresa (Terri) Smochek on May 14, 1988. Shortly after, they relocated to Margate, FL.

Chuck worked for many years for FAMCO (formerly Femco) in Punxsutawney, PA, Margate, FL and Bismarck, ND. Shortly after moving to Bismarck, ND in 2013, Chuck began working at Modern Machine Works, where he worked up until his passing. He enjoyed making and fixing things at work and around the house, affectionately called “Mr. Fix-It” by his wife and daughter.

Chuck was an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan and would wear t-shirts supporting the team almost everywhere he went, always happy to strike up a conversation with anyone, and rarely missed watching or listening to the game. He was also a biker and loved to spend time with his wife and daughter going for rides on his Harley Davidson, a passion he instilled in his daughter.

Chuck is survived by his wife, Teresa ‘Terri’ Shiock, Bismarck ND, his daughter, Marissa (Noah) Weltin, Fargo, ND; his sisters, Cheryl Thames of Stow, Ohio, Helen (Mark) Benninger, Nancy Strader and brother Steve Shiock all of Punxsutawney, PA, his mother-in-law Shirley Swarmer and sister-in-law Kimberly Swarmer of Punxsutawney, PA and several nieces and nephews.

Chuck was preceded in death by his parents, his brother-in-laws Donald Thames, Jeff Strader and Kevin Smochek.

The family would like to extend thanks to Sanford Medical Center, Sanford Hospice and The Bismarck Cancer Center for taking care of Chuck over the last three and a half months.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the Bismarck Funeral Home, Bismarck, ND. Services will take place 6:30 pm on Monday, December 11, 2023 at the Bismarck Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Bismarck Cancer Center, or the Ronald McDonald House of Bismarck
