SUNSET BEACH — Steven Meehan Plotz, 68, passed away Monday, Dec. 14, 2020. Steve was born Feb. 28, 1952, in Wausau, Wisconsin, to Arno and Pauline Plotz.
He graduated from Sheboygan North High School in 1970 and the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1974, then commenced his career as a certified public accountant at Price Waterhouse-Milwaukee.
His love of the Badgers and Madison precipitated his move back to Madison, where he worked as a CPA/tax accountant, ultimately becoming a partner at Ragsdale, Spitz, Reuschlein & Associates. Steve and Joan were married July 30, 1983, and made their home in Madison until golf and warmer weather wooed them to North Carolina in 2012. They lived in Sea Trail Golf Resort in Sunset Beach.
Steve continued his income tax work and was actively involved at St. Luke Lutheran Church, Ocean Isle Beach, serving as treasurer until his passing. Steve also maintained a lifelong connection with his U.W. fraternity, Sigma Chi, earning a lifetime service award. Steve was dedicated to his clients, church and fraternity, holding the highest standards for his financial work.
Steve is survived by his wife, Joan; Joan’s son, Chris (Tamra) Fritzler; grandchildren, Alex and Morgan of Madison, Wisconsin; sister, Sharon (Hans) Bergh of Minneapolis, Minneapolis; nieces and nephew, Brita Dahlback (Henrik) and Adam and Hannah; sisters-in-law, Carol Schneider of Largo, Florida, and Sandy (Bill) Jaber of Waupaca, Wisconsin; and many of his Sigma Chi brothers. He was preceded in death by his parents, aunts and uncles.
Steve will be missed by all those who knew him, but we are comforted that he is in a place where the Badgers always win, the Packers never fumble and the ledgers always balance.
Due to current health concerns, a celebration of life will be conducted when it is deemed safe to do so.
