The memory of Don will be with us forever

This memorial website was created in the memory of Donald C. Teal who passed away unexpectedly on January 27, 2011. Don is survived by his wife (Lucille), his two children (Denise and David), as well as his brother (Richard).

Don was retired from E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company where he had worked as a Chemical Engineer for 32 years. Don was also a WWII veteran and served from 1943 until 1946. Don loved playing golf and working in the garden and/or greenhouse, both of which he did for as long as I can remember.

Don was a loving husband and wonderful father and will be missed deeply by those who loved him.

"To my wonderful Father: you were such a fantastic role model for Dave and I.  So intelligent, kind, caring and loving.  You taught me how to garden, how to grow beautiful orchids, how to care for our pets, you set a wonderful example for us as a professional.  Your work ethic was incredible. You were always building things for us - a tree house, a pool, a fort.  We always knew you cared and loved us. You have a legacy of being our hero. No one can ever change your legacy. Love and miss you.  Denise"

"Missing you on your 90th birthday, Dad.

This tribute was added by Lucille Teal on 9th June 2013

"I thought of you today, but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name
All I have is memories and a picture in a frame
Your memory is a keepsake, from which I'll never part
God has you in his keeping, I have you in my heart

June 10 will be our 63 anniversary. I miss you and love you"

"2 years now and I still can't believe that you are really gone.

This tribute was added by Bruce Cole on 3rd July 2012

"It hardly seems possible that we have been without this good man for 18 months. The neighborhood is not the same without him. Our hearts and prayers remain with his loving family. We all miss him and are diminished by his loss.
Bruce and Lu Cole"

This tribute was added by Denise Teal on 26th January 2012

"Dear Dad:  It has been a year now since you left us and we really miss you.  We are all doing well and think of you often. As time passes, my memories of you are from the pre-Alzheimer's times- the really good times and I know you would want that. You would not want people to think of you that way.  Now that you are in a better place  and at peace, I feel peace too.  I love you, Denise"

This tribute was added by Bruce Cole on 16th May 2011

"We have had the pleasure of living next door to Don and Lu for over thirteen years. Don was a cheerful, giving person, the ideal neighbor. For just one example, once  Don insisted that we use his car for as long as we needed it. Godspeed, good friend"
