In Loving Memory of

Peter Teune Jr

1936 – 2023

Peter Teune Jr, was 86 years young, he left us on May 13, 2023.

After battling a long illness he was able to be at home

surrounded by his family before going home to the Lord.

Peter graduated from Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine

in 1963. He practiced as a family practice physician, first in the

Roseland neighborhood of Chicago, then in South Holland and

Hazel Crest Illinois. He delivered many babies and treated people

of all ages. He was beloved by his patients who were dismayed

when he announced his retirement. He was able to retire in 2004

and enjoyed the last 16 years of retirement in Port Charlotte

Florida fishing and golfing as often as he could.

He was a lover of sports both as a participant and a spectator.

He loved baseball and basketball and was a coach to all of his

sons in those sports. He enjoyed watching his children and

grandchildren at their various sporting events. He was very proud

to tell the story of how he was offered a contract as a pitcher with

the Chicago White Sox, but ultimately he made the decision to

go to medical school.

He loved his family and was known to worry about everyone he

cared about. He was thought of as a kind man with a friendly

disposition. Peter was always ready to go on to the next activity,

it was hard for him to sit still for too long unless he was watching

his beloved sporting events. He enjoyed traveling and visiting

with his children.

He was preceded in death by his parents Peter Teune and

Sadie Teune (Née Schaaf).

He is survived by his loving wife of 43 years Deborah Teune (Née Ruff),

his children, Linda (Kevin) Small, Peter Steven (Veronica) Teune,

Craig (Donna) Teune, Ross (Dawn) Teune, Pamela (Michael) Kelly,

Kristin (Stephen) Brakespear and Benjamin Teune. He is also

survived by his first wife Karon Hunt (Née Bolthouse),

his sisters Carol (Peter) Bishop and Phyllis (Gordon) Schultze.

He had 13 grandchildren who loved him: Miranda, Colin, Christoper,

Nicolas, Mica, Kayla, Wendy, Kendra, Connor, Kyle, Logan,

Preston and Nellie.

He will be forever in our hearts as we live each day to make him proud.

“Don’t be sad for what you have lost, be grateful that it was once yours.”

(Author unknown)

A celebration of his life will be held in Port Charlotte Florida in early 2024.

    Pete was our family doc for many years in S.H. He was also a neighbor on 163rd CT. near what was Arrowhead Park for a few years. I remember he added 10 stitches to my head in his kitchen when I was a youngster around 6 years old after a Big Wheel accident.
