John Edgar “Johnny” Teague passed away on April 13, 2021, in Greensboro, NC, where he lived for 90 years. He was preceded in death by his parents, Oscar B. Teague and Mossie Stone Teague, and by his brother, O. B. Teague, Jr. He is survived by his brother and sister-in-law Tommy & Nancy Teague, sister-in law, Ann Teague, seven nieces and nephews, many grand-nieces and grand-nephews, and beloved friends. He lived a long, happy, and productive life. He graduated from Wake Forest College in 1953, after which he was stationed in Austria with the US Army. His military service in Austria began a lifelong love of travel in Europe. He would regularly visit Switzerland, Austria, and Germany, especially to visit his college roommate in Zurich. He particularly enjoyed visiting Salzburg, Austria, to visit the setting of his favorite movie, The Sound of Music. Friends and family remember him as generous and kind. He was a devoted son and loved having children around him, allowing them to make pillow forts, play his piano, and explore German puzzles from his travels. He was a member of Friendly Avenue Baptist Church where he served on various committees and enjoyed many years in the church choir, getting great joy especially from the Singing Christmas Tree. He and his brother Tommy operated Teague Auto Supply, a fixture in downtown Greensboro for many years. Along with his brothers, he founded the Oscar & Mossie Teague Foundation, Inc., through which they funded a variety of philanthropic causes. John will be greatly missed by the many friends and family who loved him. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Friendly Avenue Baptist Church, 4800 West Friendly Avenue, Greensboro, NC 27410. A memorial gathering will be held at a later date.
