Sad to hear of Mister Trotter’s passing. One of the best shop teachers I ever had at Limestone. Really enjoyed working with him in woodshop. Just a really good man all the way around. Im sure he will be missed by so many people he had as students and in his life.
My condolences to his family! Rest In Peace Sir!

I was saddened to hear about Coach Teotter’s passing. He was my basketball coach from 1985-1989 at Limestone Community High. He was a great coach and an even greater friend to all of us girls. He was encouraging and compassionate and spent time with us, not just discussing basketball but also life lessons. He had a soft side to him that showed us he cared for all of us. I think of him every year in January 28th, as he and I share the same birthday. We enjoyed having that in common. I’m honored and blessed to have known him. He was such a sweet, good man who was a father figure to so many of us girls on the basketball team. Thank you for allowing me to share this message with you. Your family is in my prayers.

Mark, Angie and Mike,
Sorry to hear about the about the passing of your dad. He was my favorite teacher all those years ago. I spent more time in his woodshop than anywhere else. From class to being his student helper for three years, my fondest memories were learning the art of wood working from him. I also got to spend time with him on the golf course as he taught me how not to be so horrible at golf.
My condolences. RIP Mr. Trotter
