I just saw this while looking for a relative of mine there in Indiana. Mr. Teeter and Mr. Simons were my band teachers throughout my Lew Wallace High School Band years. 1952/1956 and I still think about him from time to time as I am still playing the Trumpet in some of the local bands. He was a great music teacher, and helped create my love of music. Looks like he had a great long life!! Respectfully; Jack Jeffress age 70

Mr. Teeter was our band director when I first attended Calument Baptist back in the later 70's; I was amazed at his ability and understanding with all of the instruments, especially when he came and took my trombone and played through a section I was having difficulty with! My appreciation of his gifts grew as I knew him more through church, Lake Hills. More than anything I am truly grateful to have known such a kind and decent man who always gave of himself without pride or presumption; I know he will be truly missed. He is in the greatest orchestra of all and I will be looking for him there in the Baritone section some day. A special greeting to Yvonne and Mike. Prayers of Peace and Joy, Robert Bob Lucas

Mrs Teeter, I am sorry to hear of Mr Teeter's passing. I remember watching him mow the lawn out back behind our houses and, occasionally getting to ride along on the tractor as well... and enjoying the days chatting with him as he and you, too worked in the garden. My sincerest condolences on your loss. Darrell

I'll always appreciate the inspiration and encouragement that Mr. Teeter gave me to love the Lord and music. He started the band program at Calumet Baptist and I was in that first band. I also worshiped with him at Lake Hills Baptist Church. I thank God for Mr. Teeter and pray for His comfort for his family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dear Mrs. Teeter, Glorianne and family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your husband and father. I remember him well when I was close friends with Glorianne in the 6th grade at Reavis elementary in Lansing. He was always so nice to me. My husband, Ed, was fortunate to have met him years later at Sherwood Music and they talked a lot about music. My deepest sympathy to you at this sad time. I am sure he will be deeply missed by many.

I would like to express my codolences to Norma and family on the passing of Gene. I have often said he was one of the kindest and gracious men I have ever met. He was a friend and a help to me in many ways. I remember the 100 club bands he directed for the support of Calumet Baptist School. Those times were very enjoyable. I also remember the times he helped me with the adult choir at Lake Hills -from filling in when I couldn't be there and also rearranging some of the choir cantatas for us. He had forgotten more about music than I ever knew, but he never attempted to one - up me. As my wife says, he was a true gentleman in every sense of the word. Even though I had not seen him very often recently, I will miss him and will be praying for God's comfort for you during these days. These thoughts are also Pat's sentiments.
