Michael A. Teetor

    Michael A. Teetor, age 71 of York, Nebraska, died on Tuesday, January 30, 2024 at Aurora, NE. He was born on December 27, 1952 in Lexington, Nebraska to Authur and Ferne (Small) Teetor with three older brothers. His parents were always active in their community, so he followed their inspiration.

    He met Victoria Lundberg in Sutton Nebraska. They were united in marriage on February 10, 1973. After moving to Lincoln, he started his career with Lincoln Electric System. Soon then after he transferred to the Nebraska Public Power District, and he finished his Business Degree at the University of Nebraska. While Michael was with NPPD he moved to many stations across Nebraska. These included: Ogallala Substation, Sutherland Gerald Gentleman Station, Sheldon Station, Columbus General Offices and finally to York Operations in 2008. He retired as an Energy Efficiency Consultant in 2017. After retirement he was a consultant for several businesses outside of NPPD area and helped write grants for the businesses on their energy usage changes for the government.

    He spent several years working on various boards and projects including: NPPDs Credit Union Board, volunteering for NPPDs Power Drive Program for high school kids, Kilgore Memorial Library’s Board, Helping Friends of The Library to obtain and place the sculpture residing in front of Kilgore Memorial Library in York, he helped York-Adopt-A-Pet put new lightning in their new building, and then he served on YAAPs board for several years. It wasn’t unusual to see him in the York Fest parades for NPPD or YAAPs. He participated in York’s Summer Games. Also, he was often asked by York Public Schools to be an expert for the kids Science Fairs. For many years, Vickie and Mike enjoyed going South to Texas for several months in the winter. They enjoyed meeting new people and the warmer weather. However, his most important role was Vickie’s protector, her confidante, and mostly her heart.

    Those left to cherish his memories are his beloved wife, Vickie, and their pup, Juliette. His brothers and their wives: Eugene and Ann of Amarillo, Texas; Leon and Nancy of Wahoo, Nebraska; and Marv and Paula of Omaha, Nebraska. Many loved nieces and nephews and their spouses: Jeff Teetor of Callahan, CO; Marie and Gary Phelps of Sterling, CO; Tara and Jacob Kuker of Amarillo, TX; Mark and Sara Teetor of Lincoln, NE; Becky and Andy Unteseher of Lincoln, NE; Tracy and Robert Lichti of Omaha, NE; Adam and Cat Teetor of Omaha, NE; Roy and Brenda Lemmon of SD; Joel and Terri Lemmon of SD; Mikal and Nancee Welling of NE; Lyle and Cindy Welling of AZ; Kari and Marty Monroe of NE; Ric and Connie McWilliams of MO; Kurt McWilliams of NE; along with many beloved aunts, uncles, and cousins.

    It was Michael’s wish to be cremated.
