David Teigland

from salem, Oregon, United States

David TeiglandApril 26, 1946 - July 30, 2017Salem - David Ames Teigland (DAT), 71, died Sunday, July 30, at the Farmington Square memory care facility in Salem. David was born on April 26th, 1946 in Fort Lewis, Washington to Janet and Mads Teigland, while Mads finished his World War II service with the Army Corps of Engineers. Mads was a proud immigrant from Norway who instilled a love of country and service in David that carried on throughout his life. David grew up in Burbank, California, where he developed a love for the Dodgers, the sun, rock and roll, Norengish (a blending of Norwegian, English, and Spanish) and 1957 Chevrolets. David graduated from the University of Redlands in 1968 and spent the majority of his working life as an accountant for various businesses in California, Washington, and Oregon. He spent as much of his non-working life as he could playing golf, buying gifts for his wife at Boucher's Jewelry, and teasing those close to him.In 1982, David and his wife Joan (whom he called "Hundred" instead of "Honey") moved to Keizer with their family. David became an active member of the Keizer Rotary club, continuing an affiliation with the service organization that he began in California in the mid-1970's. David lived by Rotary's motto of "Service Above Self" and enjoyed working on Rotary projects in Keizer and later as a transplant to Sun Lakes, Arizona. David was also a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Salem as well as St. Timothy's Episcopal Church, also of Salem. Although David was in declining health for many years, he rarely wavered from the positive. His genuine reply to almost any question (How's the weather? How's the food? How are you feeling?) was "Perfect!" David's strong faith, wry humor, and devotion to family kept him grounded.David is survived by his wife of 43 years, Hundred (Joan), as well as his daughter Terrie March and step-son John Divelbiss, four grandchildren (Kiya, Sarah, Logan, and Zoe) and four great-grandchildren.A service for David Teigland will be held at St. Timothy's Episcopal Church (3295 Ladd Ave NE, Salem 97301) on Thursday, August 10th at 11:00 AM.
