Besides wife Roselyn Kopac Tice, Jim was preceded in death by sister Janet Tice Blattmachr (George) and brother Rogers Lewis Tice (Mildred).

Jim is survived by children Marcia Tice Steele (Russell), Jeanne Tice Farlow and Billy Tice (Alice), each of Moyock; grandchildren Josh Davies of Currituck, Meredith Long (Mark) of Murfreesboro, Gregory Tice (Lindsey) of Shawboro and Thomas Davies of McDonough, NY; six great-grandchildren; nephews and nieces.
