$nameDR. FREDERICK A. CURTICE May 23, 1935 - August 2nd, 2015 Dr. Frederick Austin Curtice, cherished husband, father, brother, friend, clinician and mentor, passed away unexpectedly following complications from surgery on Aug 2, 2015 in San Diego. Born in San Francisco May 23, 1935, Fred's father moved the family to Hawaii in 1941, eventually settling in the Diamond Head area. Fred attended University High School until his senior year, then moved to Kobe, Japan, graduating from Kyoto American High School. Completing his undergraduate studies at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, he received a D.D.S degree from U of Oregon Dental School in 1962, and spent 22 years as a Navy dentist excelling in prosthodontics. Ever the adventurer, Fred loved people and creating things with his hands. Joining the Navy, he said, was the best decision he ever made. Ultimately it was his genuine love for the Navy and serving his country that encouraged his son Scott to sign up on naval reserve commission while in dental school, also at O.H.S.U. One of Fred's greatest pleasures was pinning Captain's rank on his son. Fred worked another 20 years in private practice in Kailua and Kaneohe, traveling several times a year to Midway Island Atoll to provide care. After his second retirement, he found joy with his wife, Sheila, traveling the world creating many new friendships and memories. Fred was an avid surfer, scuba diver, runner, but his biggest passion was skiing, where he served eight years on the Mt. Hood Ski patrol. He is survived by his loving wife Sheila, son, Dr. Scott Curtice and daughter-in-law Bethe, daughter, Tami Dickerson, brothers, James and Dr. Steve Curtice, step-daughters, Lisa and son-in-law Dave Criddle, Darcy Ward, step-son Mike Ward, grandchildren, Janae and Austin Curtice, Cody Criddle, Emily and Kelvin Ward. This good-hearted hardworking and thoughtful man will be deeply missed by those who knew and loved him. Memorial Service to be held at the Honolulu Elks Club on July 21st at 4:00 PM.
