I was led to this web site due to the death of a co-worker and am surprised to see Art listed here. I am still mourning him. It is hard to believe we lost such a great talent and brilliant brother. As I move from campaign to campaign I am often reminded that if it had not been for Art giving me the opportunity to work on one of his campaigns in Miami my life would be very different now. Thank You Arthur E. Teele Jr for it all!
August 03, 2006
It's been a year now since our community has lost a very valuable public servant, husband, and father. But most of all, a MAN. I still think of him often and the big sacrifices he and his family had to daily make, to serve us in and out of this community. Rest on and May the Lord hold and keep you.

Just knowing how great of a man Arthur Teele is/was, we just thought that although four months has passed since his demise, we should let you know that he's still being thought about and missed and that you all are still in our prayers.

You were a GREAT man. I thank you for all you have done for me. I can truly said, I met a honourable man.
May your soul rest in peace.

God works in mysterious ways: It is, at times, a mystery and a wonder why people cross our paths.

I have heard quite a bit about Mr. Teele, even living here in the Bahamas. I had, at times, wondered about the reports I had heard---positive and negitave---but had not concluded one way or the other, until I had met Mr. Teele for my self, in person.

I had the good pleasure of driving Mr. Teele all the way to Freeport from West End, during Renay's passing, and for the better part of an hour, had this wise, kind hearted, intelligent leader all to my self. I am still wondering why I was the lucky ones to have had this blessing to be with this giant of a leader. The advice and encouragement he gave me about my business, and life, will always be with me. To see that this important man would engage in a one-to-one conversation with me, someone he did not know at all, truly shows his genuine love for the advancement of his poeple.

God works in mysterious ways, and I know He has his reasons for me meeting Mr. Teele, right now Stephanie, I am not sure why, but I know I am more encouraged and more enlightened for having met your husband, Mr. Arthur E. Teele Jr.
August 25, 2005
I worked for Mr. Teele in Washington, DC, UMTA in 1981. He was the kindest man and mentor I have ever worked for. To his family - I am sincerely sorry for your tragic loss. God bless you all.

Arthur III & Family,

My sincere prayers are with you during this difficult time. Your father was a man that helped individuals all over this country. His spirit lives on in you. As I am reminded of my father's memory, his spirit and his teachings remain in me. My father pastored for over 38 years in the cities of Apalachicola, FL and Panama City, FL and endured many trials and tribulations in that walk. However, there was a song that he sung often at the end of his many sermons. That song reads, I am not tired, I am not worried on this journey, I am not tired, I am not worried on this way, for the Lord is my captain and he has brought me safe thus far, that is why I am not tired, I am not worried on this way. Arthur, hold on to GOD's unchanging hand and wait on him. He will see you safely through.

GOD Bless,

Thirty-two years ago I knew you were destined to do great things and you have done many good things for your community far and near. Every once in a while I would see or read something that would tell me I was right. My heart was saddened as I looked up at the news and hearing of what had occurred. Many will miss all that you have done and all that you were unable to complete. May the Lord Bless and Keep all that was near and dear to you until you are once again united.

How do you measure a man except by the impact he makes on other lives? For me, I know that Arthur Teele, left a positive impact on the Omni Area. He had the foresight to see what our Neighborhood would become after The Performing Arts Center was built but he also had the wisdom to help put all the mechanics in place too. His input and guidance helped to create an interlocal agreement that may be the only time the City and County Government were both winners. He encouraged local activists to create the Omni Advisory Board and educated us all in the benefits of a C.R.A. to our neighborhood. He was a strong proponent of neighborhood representation and his influence resulted in my appointment to the Performing Arts Center Trust. Our Board had worked since 1990 to get Margaret Pace Park revitalized, but Mr. Teele got it off the ground and knew how to find the funding to make it happen. It is now one of the finest and most used parks in Miami, his foresight is evidenced by the building boom all around the Park. Every time I saw him, he would ask "How's the Park doing?" He was proud of that park. The Omni Area will always be grateful for his support of our neighborhood and I personally will miss his wisdom, his unbelievable intelligence, his inclusive nature, and his leadership.
August 01, 2005
You are deeply missed. My sincere sympathy to your family. God bless.

I remembered watching him on the news back during the early years as he was coming onto the local arena in Florida. Having just moved here from NY my ears were very open to what was happening locally. So when I hear him speak, I thought to myself that's voice you will never forget.

We will never forget.

May God bless you and keep you now and forever more.

To the family, wife and many friends of Mr. Teele: I want to express my sincere sympathy for the loss of such a great man. Never having the opportunity to meet Mr. Teele, it is quite evident that he had a profound impact in many communities, especially one that I lived in for 4 years as a student at FAMU. May the family be encouraged in the many days to come. They will be hard, but if you serve the God that I serve, you know that they will get better. God bless you and be with you always!

Arthur E. Teele Jr. will be deeply missed by the community. The impact this soldier made in my life, how could I forget all that he did and stood for. The words and actions from others will never take away the RESPECT I have for Mr.Teele, nor the good that poured from his heart. One program I was and still is involved in as a youth is The M Ensemble. The few places my peers and I could go to get away from our "natural resources" here in Miami. Every summer commissioner Teele made sure programs like the M Ensemble received grants to keep us out of drugs infested streets and into the awaking and business of theatre. Be at perfect peace.

I can't express the shock that went through me when I heard the news on television. I didn't know Mr. Teele personally, but from all that I have heard, I do know that he has done alot for the black community in Miami. I kept praying that he would pull through and when I heard the news of his passing, it brought tears to my eyes. My deepest and most sincere sympathy goes to his family, as well as his friends and to the community that he served. He will be missed as a very prominent and influential member of the black community.

May God's love engulf you all as a mother does her newborn child, during this very sad and painful time.

Stephanie:

I am so, so sorry.

As you know, we were combatants for many years but, fortunately for me, friends and colleagues for many more. I learned to admire him greatly and, in recent years from a distance up here in Boston, found it impossible to believe what was happening to him. I will miss him, his drive and determination to help his Dade County and Miami community, his wonderful sense of humor, his incredible toughness and resolve. We have lost a man of great complexity and extraordinary ability and I will miss him very much.

To the Teele family,
Please accept our deepest sympathies for your loss. We believed that it also is a big loss for our Vietnamese-American community too. He was a brave soldier, who fought side-by-side with the soldiers of the Republic of Vietnam for the causes of freedom and democracy in the Vietnam War. He received the Bronze Star for Valor, Purple Heart, and Republic of Vietnam Cross of Gallantry. He accomplished so many years of service to the community of south Florida. May he rest in peace. God bless you.
Sincerely,
Mr & Mrs Yen Chu

My Condolences to the Teel Family in your great loss of Art. He was a Political colleague for many years. As I served in The Georgia House of Reprresentatives for 22 years and on The Albany Utility commission for 8 years, I was often in contact with him rerlative to various projects. He was bright and always had something to offer. We both served the voiceless and that is what Jesus left us to do when He Said, "If you Love Me,Feed My Sheep". Serving in Public office can often be a thankless task and Art Teele understood that, but he did much work to better the underserved anyway. May God Give Comfort To His Family.

And also God help me to remember that nothing can happen to me today, that you and I together can't handle

Amen.

The untimely and tragic death of Art became one of the saddest day of our life. Among the many things Art has done for the community, he also was a champion of the arts, in Miami. I'm very grateful for his encouragement and support that he has given to The M Ensemble Company, the oldest Black professional theatre company in the State of Florida. His first contribution to us was to serve on the Board in 1978 during our reorganization phase. From 1991-93, he fought for fundings in order for our youth to have a program that will enhance their personal growth and development and provide summer employment in the arts. He never forgot us. Thank you so much Art for giving this community so much of youself. To the Teele family, may God strengthen you as you try to deal with the sudden loss of this great husband, father, son, and brother. Rest in peace our warrior, for you will never be forgotten.

Art Teele was one of the finest men I have ever met. He was a colossus of integrity, intelligence and legal rectitude. He played an immensely important and heroic role in his military career and as a champion of civil rights when he returned to civilian life. Arthur pursued international criminals relentlessly, and he defended the innocent with every fibre of his being. His death is a monument to his life - for he has now become a martyr for racial justice - an ideal that still seems unapproachable, inaccessible and unattainable.

Mrs. Teele:

You have my condolences. I met Arthur when he was running for Mayor of Miami. I volunteered as a member of his campaign team. Every day I'd make phone calls to constituents from his campaign headquarters. Unfortunately, I never got to personally know him, but his presence was quite commanding. His devotion to this country and the denizens of Miami will never be forgotten. In this moment of bereavement look to God for comfort, for through his son Jesus ONLY will you find peace. I will be praying for you and your family.

My condolences to the Teele Family.

I met Commissioner Teele when I was just beginning to get involved in politics in Miami - Dade County.
After having volunteered for Maurice Ferre's county mayoral bid. I began volunteering in the church community for Mr. Teele.

Later, as I served on Mayor Suarez's staff during his tenure as Mayor of Miami, Mr. Teele always acknowledged my goals of having the church work in conjucton with government.

His dedication and respect of the church always inspired me and his encouraging words served as comfort to me when I was criticized for my beliefs.

Commisioner Teele's smile will always be remembered by me and I am truly dismayed by his loss.

We pray for the family and hope that Miami will truly remember Mr. Teele as a champion of the community.

Sincerely,

Josue "Josh" Morales

Though heavy laden with the years,
Though but a shadow of myself,
And though I would with few sad tears
Repose this book upon the shelf
Where other volumes gather dust:
Where mold, decay, and mildew dwell
Among the pages dank and must,
Where pains subside, where sorrows quell;
To leave my friends behind, bereft;
To end this painful arduous strife,
But I still have a chapter left...
I have a rendezvous with life!
July 28, 2005
My deepest sorrow goes out to The Teele family in thier time of need. My you have the strength to go on. My prayers are with you.

I am so sorry.

A Message From
The Bahamas Minister of Foreign Affairs
Hon. Fred Mitchell

I learned with great sadness of the tragic death of former Miami Commissioner Art Teele in the lobby of the Miami Herald’s building apparently by his own hand. He was married to a Bahamian. He was a friend of The Bahamas. When I became Minister he rekindled his friendship with The Bahamas and was instrumental in helping to mobilize persons of Bahamian descent in the South Florida area to reconnect with their country. Our country has lost a friend and brother of The Bahamas. I wish to extend deepest condolences on behalf of The Bahamas, but particularly our brothers and sisters of the South Florida area; our Consul General Alma Adams and the whole team in Miami on this tragic death. Our prayers are with his family.
July 28, 2005
May God be a source of comfort for
the Teele family and this community
during this very difficult time.
July 28, 2005
To the family of Mr. Arthur E.Teele, Jr. I wish to express my sincere sorrow in the loss of your loved one. I did not personally know Mr. Teele but read of his tragic death in the Herald online. The one thing I find comfort in is the resurrection hope promised by Jehovah God through his son, Jesus Christ. I hope your hearts will be comforted by the same guarantee; John 5:28,29; 1Corinthians 15:20-22; Acts 17:31. May our merciful god Jehovah soothe your hearts and minds as you endure this sadness.

*R.I.P Arthur E. Teele Jr.*

"Change is an inevitable part of life. We're being shaped every minute we live. Every thought, every decision, every action, every emotion, every response is shaping us into one kind of person or another. Either we're moving toward likeness to Christ or away from Him into some sort of caricature of the person God intended us to be."

The Light of God Surrounds You, The Love of God enfolds You, The Power of God Protects You and the Presence of God watches over You, where ever you are God IS.. and so it is......

Dear Mrs. Teele and family,

I will always remember Arthur Teele because of his sincere love for the people of Overtown and especially the children. Four Novembers ago, Miami Rescue Mission held a Grand Opening and Dedication of the new Community Activity Center, with programs for "at risk" children and youth of the Overtown area. Mr.Teele was the only elected politician that responded to the formal invitation that was sent out. I will never forget the inspired challenge that Commissioner Teele delivered to the young people and adults that filled the gym that stormy afternoon. He concluded his remarks with these words;"I am a very busy man, but I just had to come here today and thank you for what you are doing in the community and to encourage these beautiful young people. May God bless your work. Although you are just accross the border from my district, by a few feet, you are serving the people in my district and I thank you."

I will remember and thank God for the good that Arthur Teele Jr. did in his life time. I am my staff join hearts and hands in asking God's comfort and blessing upon you and your family.
Dr. Franklin M.Jacobs
President
Miami Rescue Mission

My Heart and Sympathy remains with the Teele Family as you go these final days. May God Bless you be with you at all times.
July 28, 2005
I, like Art, served as a Black officer in Vietnam. I came to know him when we were both captains at Ft. Bragg, NC. He was such a positive example for young Black troops. As aide-de-camp for Lt. General Westmoreland, Art had the contacts and power to help other, less fortunate Black soldiers and he did, every chance that he got.

There weren't many like him then; there aren't any like him now. I'll always remember the good that he did and encourage you to do so.

Rest in peace, my Brother.

Mrs. Teele, Cynthia and family,

The Teele family, especially Dr. & Mrs. Arthur Teele, Sr, and their children Art and Cynthia were one of the first families, my family and I met when we moved to Tallahassee in the late 60's.

We were all proud members of the FAMU community. The same proud FAMU and Tallahassee community is in mourning with you today as some of us awoke to learn of the tragic death of Art. It is my sincere prayer that you call on God to sustain, comfort and love you as you grapple with your grief. I will be praying for you today and forever, and remembering ALL OF THE GOOD THINGS, that Art did during his lifetime. "Gone to soon".

With Sincere Condolences,

"And, I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord." Psalm 34:1,2 "O Lord, how excellent is Your Name in all the earth, hell, and sky!" We praise your Holiness and Righteousness and bow to your complete will in our lives, in spite of it all. We acknowledge Proverbs 3:5,6 and will "trust you with all our heart and all our mind, and lean not unto our own understanding. We will acknowledge YOU in everything we think, say, and do." We realize YOU alone are worthy of all the praise, glory, and honor; some things are simply not for us to understand; we worship you in spirit and in truth. We shall come to know the truth, for the truth shall make us free. Yet, we know that you O God are still faithful, and we strive to be faithful unto you with your divine and supreme guidance. Our prayers and utmost thoughts are with the entire Teele family and with those of us who remain and must continue to "press towards the mark of a higher calling in God through Christ Jesus." We can't do anything until JESUS comes. Lastly, we submit to our God whose unconditional love will sustain us through anything we may endure here on the earth; we thank YOU O God for your darling son Jesus and keeping us comforted with your Precious Holy Ghost! To your Word, to your way, and to your will, we say Yea & Amen!!

Faith

Faith is like a rope
Stretched from heaven to the earth .
Faith gives us hope
To lift our spirits high.

Faith is like a muscle.
Exercise will make it stronger.
You have to get in there and hustle.
Stretch your faith. It will grow stronger.

Faith is like a magic key.
It opens heaven's door.
God in tender, loving mercy
Gives us bounties from His store.

Faith is like a tiny seed.
It can grow tall and strong.
God supplies our every need.
Trust in Him, you can't go wrong.


So I say to the Teele family keep the faith and be strong. Because God knows the reason for everything and he will never steer us wrong!

Love,

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.

Remember "Let not your hearts be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you John. 14:1,2 " remember that this only a trial troubles don’t last forever.

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Rev. 21:4

THERE’S A REASON FOR EVERYTHING
For every pain you all must bear
For every burden, every care,
There’s a reason.
For every grief that bows the head,
For every teardrop that is shed,
There’s a reason.
But if you trust God as you should
It will all work out for your good.
And He knows the reason!
From The City of Homestead

May God sanctify and keep you.

I am totally saddened by this event. Growing up in Carol City, I have always looked up to Arthur Teele.
