Christopher L. Tepp

February 3, 1962 — November 27, 2023


Christopher L. Tepp, 61, Kewaunee. Chris left this world in his sleep on November 27, 2023, to joyfully meet his father, Leon Tepp and Mother, Sylvia Niemczyk Tepp Kunst in heaven.

Chris was born February 3, 1962, in Milwaukee. As the youngest of six children, he enjoyed a life with open boundaries and a smiling disposition. The family moved back to Stevens Point and Chris enjoyed the life of a normal kid including Boy Scouts and being a paper carrier. After graduating from Pacelli High School he moved to Arizona and obtained his knowledge and skills as a plumber with Keith Riggs Plumbing. While in Arizona he married Jamie Gibson, they later divorced.

He then moved back to Wisconsin, after missing the snow, and started his own plumbing company. He was good at plumbing and really enjoyed helping people with their plumbing needs. As a Master Plumber he knew his stuff, ask him a question and he always had an answer to help solve your problem. In his off time, he enjoyed cooking, fishing, snowmobiling, and hunting. He lived to fish with his brother Tim. He was happy to take his mother fishing, along with other relatives, showing them a good day of catching fish, especially when he out fished everyone else and he reminded them of that fact. He made the best fish fry outdoors in his special pan. He enjoyed cooking and he and his sister Marcia had many fun times making pierogies for Christmas Eve.

He was fun to be around, enjoyed playing cards with the family and had a goofy grin that welcomed everyone into his world. He will be missed by those that worked with him and lived with him. He lived in Kewaunee with his brother Tim and was working for The Cash Depot. His job took him across the country, driving, which he enjoyed.

He is survived by his brother and best friend Tim, sisters Marcia Tepp (Gary Hetzer) and Jenifer (Ken), Napruszewski and brothers Jeffery (Jill) Tepp and Mark (Lisa) Tepp. There are 11 nieces and nephews and 10 great-nieces and great-nephews that will miss him, along with Dolly, his canine friend.

He was proceeded in death by his parents Leon Tepp and Sylvia Tepp Kunst and a great-niece Evelyn Dudley.
