John A. Teeple

Private services were held for John Albert Teeple, 64, of Ashippun, who left the earthly realm Friday, Oct. 25, 2013.

John was preceded in death by his parents, John Nicholas Teeple and Norma (Mullett) Teeple, and his sister, Nancy Penny.

A good friend to all, Johnís kindness, generosity and empathetic spirit touched all who met him.

His creative and curious mind lives on in his sons, Nicholas in Chicago, Steven in San Francisco, and his wife, Joeann Genetti Teeple. John is also survived by his brothers, Steven in Thousand Oaks, Calif., and Thomas in New York City.

Some of Johnís favorite adventures included the Monterey Pop Festival, journeys across Mexico, owning and operating Allscreen Image Marketing in Covington, Ky., for nearly two decades, and kayaking down the Kickapoo River in western Wisconsin.

His focus on philanthropy in recent years will continue to improve the lives of many. Like the ripples from a pebble thrown in a calm pond, Johnís energy continues to spread forever in all directions and change everyone in its path. The burst of light that we knew as John Albert Teeple is cruising through the cosmos seeking greater enlightenment. We mourn the space he left in our hearts, but celebrate the difference he made in our lives. So long and thanks for all the fish.
