Homer “Sonny” Glenn Teter Jr., 70 years, of Neosho, Mo., passed away on Thurs­day, Aug., 31, 2017, at his res­i­dence with his lov­ing fam­ily by his side.

He was born on July 26, 1947, in Ot­tawa, Kan., to the late, Homer Glenn Teter Sr. and Louise Caro­line (Muller) Teter. He spent his youth and early years in Ot­tawa be­fore mov­ing to Texas. Af­ter Texas he moved to Neosho where he set­tled and lived the re­main­der of his years. He had a ca­reer in car­pen­try and con­struc­tion, work­ing for Branco En­ter­prises for over 20 years. Other hob­bies in­cluded be­ing a CB ra­dio en­thu­si­ast, bowl­ing and fish­ing.

He lived a sim­ple life, work­ing night and day to sup­port his fam­ily. He was the hardest-work­ing man with the great­est work ethic any of us knew. He was proud of his work whether it be do­ing sim­ple home im­prove­ments to build­ing a school or com­mer­cial shop­ping cen­ters. He never set­tled for any­thing less than per­fec­tion upon com­ple­tion.

He only had a few close best friends (we’re look­ing at you David Pilk­ing­ton) but he was looked up to and loved by many. He helped too many peo­ple to count and would al­ways be there when asked. He was a teacher of all things; se­ri­ously, this man knew ev­ery­thing, but he was al­ways open to lis­ten any­time. One les­son he taught his chil­dren was to al­ways de­mand re­spect for your­self and never ac­cept any­thing less than. He was al­ways crack­ing jokes; of course, never meant for chil­dren or your mother’s ears. Above all, his great­est achieve­ment were his chil­dren and most fa­vorite ac­tiv­ity was spend­ing time with his fam­ily. No need to go any­where or do any­thing, just sim­ply sit­ting and talk­ing. There was never enough time that would sat­isfy him. His ul­ti­mate goal was al­ways mak­ing sure his fam­ily knew he loved them to the very end.

He is sur­vived by his com­pan­ion, Jan­ice Graham of the home; a son, Charles Teter of Olathe, Kan.; a daugh­ter, An­gel Fritz and hus­band, Tif­fin, of Burling­ton, Kan.; a daugh­ter, Trudy Teter-Bishop and hus­band, Sean. of Ot­tawa, Kan.; a daugh­ter, Dusti Pow­ell and hus­band, Mike, of Ot­tawa, Kan. ; a sis­ter, Kathryn Ste­wart of Ot­tawa, Kan., and fam­ily, niece, Bon­nie Ram­sey, nephew, David Ste­wart, and niece, Linda Tate; a sis­ter, Bar­bara Wil­liams of Ot­tawa, Kansas and fam­ily, niece, De­bra Lysaught, and nephew, Rick Wil­liams; a sis­ter, Pa­tri­cia Ann Parker of Forsyth, Mo.; and fam­ily, niece, Cindy Parker, nephew, Billy Parker, nephew, Rex Parker and nephew Vic­tor Parker. Grandpa Sonny was blessed with 13 grand­chil­dren, Danielle and Joel Dale, Cody Fritz, Court­ney and Alex Bower, Celsie Pow­ell, Jakob Teter, Wy­att Teter, Cierra Fritz, Michael Pow­ell, Chloe Fritz, Matthew Pow­ell, Abi­gayle Bishop, Chase Pow­ell and two great-grand­chil­dren, Bayleigh Bower and Llewellyn Dale. Other loved ones in­clude Mika Graham, Chyenne Cal­ton, Matt Graham and fam­i­lies.

We thank you for all your love and sup­port dur­ing this time.
