He loved his family deeply and was always there for them. He was kind and generous to all he knew and cared about and supported his country and his community in many ways; as an election judge, with Meals on Wheels, annual charity golf tournaments, local quilt shows, and many other charitable events. He was instrumental in stopping the landfill from coming to Hempstead.
He owned his own company, TebCo Services, and ran his business more like a family, and business thrived. TebCo managed water districts in Harris and nearby counties. Until his retirement he was an active member of the Association of Water Board Directors. He was proud to be a lifetime member of the Knights of Columbus and becoming a member of the 4th degree.
