Michael Edwards Teel, II
Michael Edwards Teel, II of Garland Texas – loving father, brother, uncle, and friend of many – passed away on October 13th, 2022. Michael was born on April 13th, 1960 to Michael Edwards Teel, Sr. and Mary Jo Teel in Fort Worth, Texas. He is survived by his son, Mason Teel. He is also survived by his three sisters, Lindy Draper, Julie Tritch, and Jennifer Emigh-Perdue; his nephew, Ricky Draper; his two nieces Sarah Tritch Mount and Hailey Emigh; as well as his two grand-nieces, Sabina Draper and Morgan Mount. Michael grew up in Garland Texas, and graduated from South Garland High School in 1978. He spent a few wild years living in Fort Walton Beach Florida while serving in the U.S. Air Force. Michael was a believer in Jesus Christ. In his free time, Michael loved visiting with his friends and family, and rocking out. He loved music, guitars, motorcycles, Mexican food, and a good margarita. He was a man of many talents, and could fix just about anything. He will be greatly missed by many people. Gone, but never forgotten. Details for a memorial service to follow soon.
It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Thank you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you. Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad. Love, The Gillilands

It was a shock to see this picture of a grown man (still as handsome as ever) because I remember him as a very quiet teenager in our Garland neighborhood riding his bike across my yard and flashing shy smile if he got caught. All my love and prayers for his family.
My lifelong friend, I will miss you. We laughed and laughed; we rode many miles on our motorcycles. I made up words to our songs while you played. We did some wild things that we probably should not have done, and few have tried. Some better forgotten but still burn in my memories. Many adventures we shared. Those were the days that I would never want to relive but I would not take a million dollars for.
Times changed and we put the old life behind us. Turned over a new leaf for the better. You now have new dawns, no more pain and sorrow. Dude I’m a little jealous of where you are now. You got there before me, But I will follow you this time. Forgive me if I don’t rush to meet you. You always were and will always be my friend. I love you dude.
Jennifer, Julie, Lindy and Mason,
I just read about the passing of Michael Edwards Teel, II, and I am truly sorry for your loss. You and your Family will be in my thoughts and prayers as we all mourn his passing. He deeply loved each and every one of You work his whole heart. He always kept in touch with us, and it seemed like every time he called out came by our house, I always had a message for him, from Lindy, and a couple of times from Julie. I remember just giving him my telephone when he would come over and telling him to call his sister’s to let them know he was alright. When Mason was a baby, I babysat him. Mike was a good Father, Brother, Uncle and Friend. He will be greatly missed by us all. Until we meet again, may you Rest In Peace My Friend. Our Deepest Heartfelt Condolences go out to all the Family Members.
Mr. and Mrs. Thomas and Leanne Crowe
