Terry N. Teudt(1945 - 2013)

Teudt, Terry N. SAN DIEGO -- It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Dr. Terry N. Teudt, July 7, 2013. Terry died of a heart attack in his home. Terry was born March 5, 1945, in Salt Lake City, Utah. He then moved to San Diego and graduated from Point Loma High School. He attended college at San Diego State and completed his education at the University of Pacific Dental School. Dr. Teudt, or Terry to his friends and family, had a very successful private Dental practice in the Banker's Hill area, and was highly respected in the community. He retired after 40 years in dentistry, his biggest passion. In his lifetime, Terry's second passion was to travel. His adventures took him to Europe, South America, and Mexico, but his favorite destination was Maui, which he considered his second home. In the late 1970s, Terry became involved with the San Diego Cancer Society fundraisers and was a founding member of the Bachelor's of San Diego, which hosted fundraisers to benefit children. He had many great friends during his lifetime, especially Cheryl Corrao, who took great care of him, not only during his career but also in his last years of his life. We are especially grateful to Dr. Willging for his care. Terry is survived by the Corrao Family. A celebration of Terry's life will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Rady's Children's Hospital. Please share your memories of Terry by signing the guestbook or visit merkleymitchell.com.
