Charles (Chuck) Teeslink was born May 2, 1938, to Harry and Evelyn (Ford) Teeslink. Chuck joined the United States Army from 1960-1965. He was then united in marriage to Lila (Barber). They were blessed with three children, Paula, Sara, and Tyler. Chuck worked most of his life doing what he loved, farming and ranching. He took pride in his work. He was the most happy sitting behind the wheel of a tractor.
Chuck united in marriage with Judy Gamber after the passing of his first wife. Along with this marriage he gained two stepchildren Kristina and Dustin.
Chuck will always be remembered for his smile that could light up a room and for the way he could tell stories in such detail. He seemed to know someone no matter what county he was in. He had a way about him that seemed to leave a lasting impression on anyone he come into contact with. But what he loved the most were his kids and grandkids. They all meant the world to him.

Paula Guinn of Chamberlain, SD; and her children Dillon Schuh, Desarae Schuh and great granddaughter Kenzley, Caycee Guinn, Taryn Guinn, and Daulton Guinn.
