December 16, 1987 – July 16, 2022
After a year and half of a painful courageous battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, David Beniah Teichroeb went home to be with his Lord and Savior at Vernon Hospice House, July 16, 2022.
David was born in Vernon December 16, 1987. He loved nature, flowers and exploring the outdoors his whole life. Also hiking, camping, fishing, long drives, dirt biking with family and friends. He had a huge passion for cars and car racing with his father’s Mustang out at Thunder Mountain Race track. David graduated from Fulton High School in 2005. After trying different work options, he settled on Plumbing/Gasfitting receiving his Red Seal. The company CMQ was David’s last place of employment as he struggled with his disease.
David’s absolute heart and joy was his daughter Emma (7). They were 2 peas in a pod going on many adventures and discovering new things. Before he passed, he gave Emma a little engraved silver locket and hand written cards to be given to her at certain times in her life. David had a huge love for his family and his friends. Even though it was a rocky relationship through trials in his life his love for the Lord grew strong and true.
He had complete confidence in his salvation and longed to go “home”. …. You are in Glory my dear son, father, brother, cousin and friend. Rest in Peace my love until we meet again.
