Obituary: Tommy J. Teague, 84, of Ludington

Tommy J. Teague, 84, of Ludington passed away Monday, November 18, 2019. He was born October 28, 1935 in Winston Salem N.C. to Samuel and Ruth (Brewer) Teague. Tommy graduated from Winston Salem High School. 

Tommy moved to Ludington from Big Pine Key, Florida after Dwight Scott (Scotty) insisted he come work for him at Scotty’s Wren’s Roost. In 1974 he did just that, meeting his future wife, Sally. He also worked for Scotty as his head cook at the Town House and the Harbor House. Tommy went on to be head cook for the Lincoln Hills Golf Club until finally opening his own restaurant, Tommy T’s, which he ran for over 10 years before semi retiring. 

Tommy was a long-time member of the Lincoln Hills Golf Club and Emanuel Lutheran Church. He loved to golf, riding his riding lawn mower, and garden.  He always grew the best flowers. He was a master tinkerer, and of course, he was head cook at any family function. His cooking was legendary. Tommy was a kind-hearted person who cared for everyone he knew.

He will be greatly missed by his wife of over 30 years, Sally Teague; his children, Joey, James, Jeffrey, and Kevin Teague, Peggy Lohse, Carl Berggren (Debbie), Randy Rees (Pamela), Larry Rees (Kathy), Rena Killebrew (John), Patty Leafstrand (Tom), Doug Rees (Debbie); and many grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Besides his parents, Tommy was preceded in death by three siblings, Gertrude Dull, Jeanette Dull, and Johnny Teague, his best friend.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, November 23, 2019 at 11 a.m. at Emanuel Lutheran Church in Ludington. Family will greet friends starting at 10 a.m.
