Amazing husband, father and grandpa, Douglas Teeples, 79, Nashville, died Saturday, Nov. 16, 2013, at his home, with his loving wife and daughters by his side, after fighting multiple systems atrophy for over three years.

Doug was born in Salmon, Idaho March 10, 1934, to Harold Henry and Leah Benetta Norton Teeples. He is survived by his wife, Donna Jean Goodwine Bristol Teeples; his two daughters, Carla Jean Martell (Lance), and Audrey Kay Scott (Dean); eight grandchildren, Chari (Trevor) Buckley, Krystal (Bryce) White, Brooke (Shawn) Carter, Sean Nelson, Carissa Scott, Brennan Scott, David Nelson, and Trevor Scott; and eight great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his mother and father, Leah and Harold Teeples; his sister, Lou Ann Horn; and his brothers, Monte Harold Teeples and Lynn Norton Teeples.

Doug received his undergraduate degree at the University of Utah and his doctorate in dentistry from the University of Michigan. He practiced general dentistry and orthodontics for a total of 29 years in Utah and California. After he retired from his career, he pursued his passions, portrait oil painting, computer graphic design and playing his clarinet in the Brown County Community Band.

Doug served faithfully in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints his entire life.
