Peter Teichroeb
1947 ~ 2020

Dad was born to Jacob and Elizabeth (Loewen) Teichroeb, in Chihuahua, Mexico on December 6, 1947. When he was fifteen the family moved to Shipyard, Belize and seven years later when he was 22, he met Justina Neustaeter. Dad was baptized in the Spring of 1970 by Bishop Isaac Dyck at the Shipyard Old Colony Church in Belize and was married to the love of his life on January 24, 1971 in Shipyard. They started their family there in Shipyard and lived there until 1973, when they moved to Blue Creek for nine months. Then, in April of 1974 Mom and Dad decided it was time to move to Canada. They arrived In La Crete, Alberta, and then in June 1975 they moved East, to Schoenwiese, Manitoba. There they remained for 6 years, before moving to Reinland for sixteen years and then again to Schoenwiese for another 16 years. Finally, in 2014 they made the decision to pack up once more and move to Winkler, where they remained until his passing. Mom and Dad would have celebrated their 50th anniversary on January 24. Working in his shop and building real lifelike models of machinery were some of Dad’s favourite past times. He also enjoyed fishing and flying radio-controlled airplanes (which he built himself from scratch). Dad was well-known for his ability to fix boat motors and welding for other people. He always had people come to his shop to drop items off for him to fix and/or weld. Working with his lathe was one of his many talents; he also did plenty of work on the lathe for others. Dad worked hard all his life in order to provide for his family. He would work in his shop until late at night after working all day at his job. Dad loved playing musical instruments. He played lots of guitar with his brother Abe and his son Abram. He also played the accordion. Playing instruments was a true gift of his; there seemed to be no instrument that he couldn’t figure out and play. Dad started working at Triple E in 1975 and worked there for 17 years. After he left Triple E dad also worked at Meridian and Convey All for a few years. He then did some farming before he went to work at Monarch, where he worked until he was no longer able to work - due to his health. Dad suffered with COPD and emphysema for many years. He was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2018. Dad’s health continued to deteriorate and in October 2020, another CT scan revealed the lung cancer had metastasized to his other organs. Dad suffered a lot in the last few weeks before the good Lord called him home. Prayer was very important to Dad and he always made a point to tell us “remember to pray before you go to bed”. We prayed by his bedside often. The Lord’s Prayer always calmed him when he struggled to breathe. 

Mom and Dad were blessed with one son and two daughters: twelve grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. Dad was predeceased by both of his parents and parents-in-law, one granddaughter, two brothers (one in infancy), one sister, three brothers-in-law and three sisters-in-law. He leaves to mourn his loving wife, Justina, one son, Abram (Anna) Teichroeb), two daughters, Lisa (Henry) Neufeld and Anna (Ernie) Wiebe also his grandchildren, Elena (Peter) Abrams, Joshua Teichroeb, Josiah Teichroeb, Emily Teichroeb, Jordan Teichroeb, Jesse Teichroeb, Tony (Eva) Neufeld, Kevin (Jenna) Neufeld, Michelle Neufeld, Ryan Neufeld and Marissa Wiebe. As well, one step mother-in-law, ten great-grandchildren, two brothers, two sisters, twelve sisters-in-law, eight brothers-in-law, and numerous nieces, nephews and friends. 

The family would like to express our deepest gratitude for the countless prayers, food, support and encouragement we have received through this trying time. An extra thank-you to Dr. Lane, Dr Woelk, the palliative nurses and the home care nurses that treated Dad during this time. We find solace in the fact that Dad is in a better place, now free of the pain and struggle he experienced in his final days here with us.
