Carl Dean Teague Sr.

December 13, 1937May 5, 2019

Carl Dean Teague, Sr., 81, of Gastonia, went to be with the Lord on Sunday May 5, 2019 at the Brian Center in Gastonia. Carl was a man who loved old cars. He was never able to see his ’66 Ford Galaxy completed, but he carefully followed its restoration. He loved yard work and was known for his roses. He was frugal and loved to get a bargain. He will be dearly missed by all that knew and loved him.

Carl was born in Washington County Tennessee to the late Annie Mae (Patterson) and Carl V. Teague. He was preceded in death by his wife Shelvy (Sikes) Teague, sister Janice McDonald brother Billy Teague.

Left to cherish their memories and to carry on Carl’s legacy are: daughter Sherry Hayes, son Carl Teague, Jr. and wife Sissy, and sister Elaine (Teague) Bowman, four grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. The love of his life was his great-granddaughter Macie Olivia.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 3:00 P.M. on Tuesday May 7, 2019 at Carothers Funeral Home Chapel, 2205 Williamsburg Drive, Gastonia. Pastors Mike Waters and Greg Ballard will offer words of encouragement and hope to those that gather to remember Carl. Pallbearers will be Joshua Teague, William Huffstetler, Willie Buckner, Bobby Treece, Timothy Treece and Daniel Treece.

The family will receive friends from 1:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. in the chapel before the service.

Burial will be in the Garden of Honor at Gaston Memorial Park. The committal will follow the Celebration of Life Service.
