Obituary for Eugene Frank Teter

Teter, Eugene "Gene" Frank, age 88 of Littleton. Gene went to his heavenly home on April 23, 2016. He will be remembered for his passion for life, fierce independence, unconditional kindness and generosity, warm smile, joyful laughter and love of plants and flowers.

Gene was born on January 9, 1928 in Coon Rapids, Iowa, son of Berthal and Opal (Trucks) Teter. Upon graduation he enlisted in the Army and served 5 years before attending Oklahoma State University, where he majored in horticulture. He furthered his education by attending business school in Omaha, Nebraska. He then took a job licensing large semi trucks and trailers. After relocating several times, he settled in Littleton, Colorado in 1968. He opened a sprinkler system business called The Sprinkler Man. He later opened Gene Teter Trucking Service (GTTS), which was active until 2014.

Gene was the third eldest child of 10. He is preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Morris Teter and DeWayne Teter; sisters, Darlene Wilson (Darrel) and Patricia Nielson (Elmer). He is survived by Kenneth Teter (Gladys) of Coon Rapids, Iowa; Donna Bylund (Carl–deceased) of Avoca Iowa; Richard Teter (Faby) of Arroyo Hondo, New Mexico; JoAnn Knowles (George-deceased) of Auburn, Iowa; Sharon Crissey of Ottumwa, Iowa; Rose Teter, wife of DeWayne Teter of Ogden, Iowa; numerous nieces, nephews and friends.

Gene lived a life of service, sponsoring several children through Compassion International and being active within Mission Hills Church. He taught Sunday School to young children and participated in several missionary trips through out the world. He loved travel, experiencing cultures and sports. Cheering the local teams was a favored pastime as well as following college sports.

The family would like to thank Margie and Gene McClaslin, Rick and Judy Stuchell, their families and Gene’s many other friends that provided love, support and help over the years and in the recent months leading up to his death.

Following the graveside committal, there will be a reception at Mission Hills Church, 620 Southpark Dr., Littleton, CO 80120, between South Broadway and Santa Fe Dr on County Line Rd.
