Remembering Henry Teichert, 1917 – 2013

Henry Teichert was a successful businessman, a dedicated philanthropist, and a loyal benefactor of Thomas Aquinas College. He was also the father of four Thomas Aquinas College alumni and the grandfather of eleven, including the recently departed Rosie Grimm (’10).

Mr. Teichert passed away on October 15, and his hometown newspaper, The Sacramento Bee, has published a delightful obituary chronicling his life’s achievements, both personal and professional.

“Despite his wealth and influence in the community” the obituary reads, “Teichert was disarmingly soft-spoken and low-key in person. An unassuming man of simple tastes, he shunned the trappings of a high-powered business executive.” The full story is available via the Bee’s website.

There will be a viewing of Mr. Teichert’s body at the Gormley and Sons funeral home in Sacramento (2015 Capitol Ave.) on Wednesday, October 23, from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. His funeral will take place in Thursday, October 24 at Trinity Episcopal Church (2630 Capitol Ave.) at 2 p.m.

Please pray for the happy repose of his soul and the consolation of his family.
