David Teel Obituary
On Tuesday August 7th 2018, the world lost a magnificent and rare soul, ten days shy of his 77th birthday. David Teel passed peacefully in his sleep at home in Rio Rico Arizona, after a 34 year battle with Type 1 Diabetes. A kind person and wonderful human being.
Loving father, grandfather, husband, and writer, born August 17th 1941, in Clovis New Mexico to Earl and Fay Teel. He had a baby brother who passed at birth and he will be greatly missed by his siblings Robert, Elizabeth, Paul and Linda.
He attended Keene University and Eastern New Mexico University, farmed in Weber City and Field New Mexico, sold heavy equipment worldwide, designed and built homes, and traveled throughout Central America. David wrote and published three books; Black Dogs, Moments of Existence, and The Brightness. His life was nothing short of extraordinary.
David will be lovingly remembered and forever missed by his wife of 49 years, Sylvia and his children, Paul Luke and Anna, who miss him and love him dearly. David will always be remembered as an amazing Papa by his five grandchildren, Eric David, Mariah, Thomas, Monet, and two month old baby Cecilianna. David fought to live long enough to meet his baby granddaughter, Cecilianna, and he did.
A Celebration of Life for David will be held on Saturday September 1st, 2018, at 1:00pm at the Church of the Brethren 101 Acoma Dr. Clovis, New Mexico 88101. Interment will follow at Field Cemetery, for those who are able to attend.
