July 21, 1945 – August 5, 2015
Teake peacefully left to join the arms of his Lord and Savior on August 5th, surrounded by his cherished & devoted family. He is lovingly remembered by his wife of 44 years Sylvia, his beloved children: daughter’s Melanie (Kevin) and Denise; son’s Shane (Lara) & Wesley (Jocelyn), as well as his seven treasured grandchildren. He enjoyed the creativity of his trade as a Machinist/Millwright and worked with integrity, compassion, humility & perseverance. Teake was an honest man of unwavering loyalty, dedicated to his faith, church and family. With a generous heart he welcomed into his home and under his wing many throughout his years. Teake’s 70 years, peppered with many good moments and struggles, built a man of rare quality whose loss will be felt deeply by those who were fortunate to know and love him until they meet again in Heaven. An open Celebration of Life service will be held on Thursday August 13th, 2015 at 3pm in the Maple Ridge Christian Reformed Church.
