1947 - 2011 Obituary Condolences

Feb. 5, 1947 July 10, 2011

Scott was born in Detroit, MI to Gordon and Marie Teeple, though from a young age grew up in Southern California. After serving in the military during the Vietnam War, he returned to earn his Bachelor of Art degree in Fine Arts from CSU, Chico. In 1981, he married Mary Gocke, with whom he had two daughters. Scott left his legacy in Chico with many mural projects in town. His art was his life, and he shared his talent on the walls of Chico, inside many restaurants, and in the homes of lucky Chicoans. He loved his work, family and many friends, and especially the town of Chico, that he considered himself lucky to have lived in all his adult life.

Scott is survived by his daughters, Emily Teeple (Travis Merrifield), Megan Teeple, and Mary Gocke; his mother, Marie Teeple; sister, Debi Carreon; his brother, Mike (Linda) Teeple, and three nephews and two nieces. His father, Gordon Teeple, preceded him.

Scott's family invites friends to a casual memorial at Scotty's Landing at 12609 River Road in Chico, Saturday, July 23, 2011 from 3-7pm.

Bring your instruments, singing voice, stories and memories to celebrate "Mr. Chico!"
