Karl J. Teser

Jul 15 1935 – Oct 9, 2017

Absolutely the best Dad a daughter could ever have!  Karl lived life to the fullest and his presence was felt by many.  Karl was generous, kind, and could charm the socks off anyone!  Serving in both Korea and Vietnam, Karl retired from the United States Air Force in 1978 as a SMSGT.  He went on to pursue many hobbies, including raising tropical fish and pigeons.  Karl was a National Pigeon Association Master Breeder of Tumblers and was known for his encouragement to others interested in the hobby.

Karl was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Gloria; his sister and brother-in-law, Joyce and John Marrs; and his parents, Florence and Joseph Teser.  Karl is survived by his daughter, Cheryl, son-in-law Les; his niece, Raquel and her family; his pet dove, Annie (rescued 13 years ago when she fell out of her nest); and his special little dogs, Maggie and Maxine.  Karl was the star of his neighborhood and will be especially missed by the children who loved to come over and see Mr. Karl.

Graveside Service and Interment on Friday, November 10th at 10am at Omaha National Cemetery with military honors.  Memorials may be made in Karl’s name to the Nebraska Humane Society.

    Cheryl, I was so sad to hear that your father passed away. Now your mom and dad can be together. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

    Cheryl. My sincere condolences to you and your family on the unfortunate loss of your father. I am sure your dad was proud of the daughter he raised. The person you’ve become is a reflection of the quality father you love. With sympathy, Derrick.

    Cheryl, I was so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. You mentioned at the TF how close the two of you were, and I know it must have been very difficult for you to lose him so soon after that. But as Derrick says, the daughter he raised….she will remember the good times and the life lessons he taught her.

    Fondly and with much sympathy,

    Richard C
