Harold Lee Teske 1938 - 2020

Harold Lee Teske was born May 18, 1938, in Oregon City, Oregon, to William Fred Teske and Martha (Yiager) Teske. He had one sister and three brothers. The family grew up in the Oregon City area.

Harold was married to Sally Glenn from 1958 to 1968. They had four children, Randy Teske, Kenny Perkins, Mikell Perkins and Joyce Teske. Harold married Kay (Naomi LaVora) Colvin on February 2, 1969. Harold was step-dad to Connie Hensley, Shelly Grady, Randy Rose and Kevin Rose.

Harold served six years in the Army National Guard and was honorably discharged in September of 1964. He made his living as a logger. In his later years he farmed, raising and butchering cows and pigs.

Harold loved fishing, hunting, and making homemade brews and sausage. He liked helping others and was a longtime volunteer at the Grand Ronde Food Pantry. He particularly loved raising and caring for his many dogs. He valued the time he spent with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

He is survived by his four children; four step-children; 22 grandchildren; and 34 great-grandchildren.

Harold passed away at 6:00 a.m. December 29, 2020, at his home in Grand Ronde. He passed away comfortably in his sleep, with his dogs and family near him. He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Kay; and his child, Joyce.

Services will be held later in the spring when hopefully more family and friends are able to gather. Harold will be greatly missed and forever loved.
