September 11, 2018

Mark Owen Teeter, 54, of Ethel, MO, passed away on Thursday, August 30, 2018, in Hilton Head, South Carolina.

Mark was born on July 4, 1964 in Kirksville, Mo. He was the son of Davie and Glenda Teeter. Mark enjoyed hunting, fishing, music, people, Native American artifacts and history. He enjoyed deer and turkey hunting, he claimed to be able to call a turkey in so close he could catch it with his hands! After a good rain Mark always wanted to walk the creek beds around Ethel looking for arrowheads. He had quite an eye for them, seeing a single arrowhead among thousands of rocks when no one else saw anything. Mark revered the Native American culture, spending many hours studying and collecting artifacts. Mark loved to travel, and lived at times in Arizona, Florida, and Georgia, but Missouri was always home. He initially followed his father Davie into pipeline construction but found his true calling in the furniture business. His outgoing personality made him a top salesman, earning numerous awards as the highest performing salesperson.

The only thing bigger than Mark’s personality was heart, he will be missed by the many that knew and loved him. You couldn’t help but smile when his laugh filled the room.

Mark is survived by his sister Lisa Osborn of Houston, TX. Uncle Mark is survived by four nieces and nephews, Travis Teeter, Kristopher, Josey, and Sophie Osborn; ­­ six great-nieces and nephews, Jaivin, Valiencia, and Xayden Teeter of Colorado Springs, Co., and James (Indy), Lauren, and Jackson Jones of Houston, TX.

He is preceded in death by his parents; Davie and Glenda Teeter; and one brother, Freddie Teeter.

Funeral services will be 1:00 pm, Friday, September 7, 2018, at the Church of God Holiness in Macon, MO, and will be officiated by Ralph Wheeler. Burial will be in the Glaston Cemetery at Ethel. Visitation will be from 5 to 8 pm, Thursday evening, at the Hutton & McElwain Funeral Home in Macon. Family suggests memorials to the Glaston Cemetery.
