Zoltan Teall, 82, of Lake Placid, Florida, peacefully slumbered during his ascent towards the pearly gates to meet his God and to reunite with his wife of 55 years on September 15, 2012. He was a sweet father and grandfather and a friend to many. He was born in Gyula, Hungary and immigrated to the United States in 1956 with his then friend and now passed wife and took up residence in New York, later moving to New Jersey and then to Florida. Zoltan worked as an electrician and plumber and superintendent of an apartment complex in his younger years. He was loved by many people, Irene and Jerry, Chip and Carol, Bob and Opal and will be missed dearly. Zoltan loved to hunt and fish and would really get into wrestling on the TV. He is predeceased by his wife Elizabeth. Zoltan is survived by his loving daughters Annette and Suzette, grandchildren Suzanne, Amanda and Alex and 6 great grandchildren and very close family friend Joe. Thank you to everyone in his life that brought him joy, happiness, caring, respect and dignity. A memorial service was conducted at bedside for immediate family and friends. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Haven Hospice, Gainesville, Florida.
