Kendal B. Teague
Sep 26, 1985 - Jan 28, 2023SIGN GUESTBOOK | ORDER FLOWERS AND GIFTS
Kendal Burke Teague was born on September 26, 1985 to Gary Teague and Shirley Heath-Teague in Brownwood, TX. Kendal is survived by his wife, Amy Maleski Teague, his mother and father, his aunts and uncles Dan & Patsy Heath, Michael & Kathryn Galaway, Lynn and Junior Lenth, Connie Nabholtz and many cousins.
Kendal grew up in Brownwood, TX and spent a lot of time with his grandparents in northeast, IA and Whitney, TX. Kendal loved horses and was in the show ring by the time he was two years old. He quickly became “the one to beat” and continued showing all the way through high school with his faithful horse, Danny.
Kendal joined the scouting program in second grade as a member of Pack 14 under the leadership of Steve Ellis. They needed some leaders or they wouldn’t be able to have a Wolf den. No one raised their hand, and Kendal looked at his mom and said, “please mom?” Shirley volunteered, and she began her adventures in scouting the same day Kendal began his. He loved his scout troop. They did the Big Three high adventure camps. He went to jamboree, and was on staff at Camp Billy Gibbons when he was older. At the age of 14, he entered the ranks of Eagle Scout. He was a mentor to the younger scouts, and I’d say he was a mentor to us all in many ways.
In addition to scouting and showing horses, Kendal was in theatre, played on the tennis team, and was active in the youth group at Austin Avenue Church of Christ. He made many lifelong friends through all of his many activities. Kendal graduated from Brownwood High School in 2004. He didn’t know it, but he had already met his wife, Amy.
Kendal left Brownwood in 2008 on his great adventure in Yosemite National Park in CA. He started off as a jack of all trades, a bellman and handyman. It wasn’t long before his skills as a horseman were noticed, and he began the life he loved out on the trails as a packer. It was there that he added the other guides and hands at the pack station to his friendship roster. You didn’t have to twist his arm too hard to talk about his life there, and he loved them like family.
Kendal came back to Brownwood and got his CDL and drove for several years. He also taught martial arts at the Chouwa No Uchi Dojo.
Kendal reconnected with the love of his life, Amy Maleski of Brownwood, TX in 2021. They both knew they had found “the one” as soon as they saw each other again. The couple moved to Sheboygan Falls, WI in 2021 and married on September 24, 2022. Kendal and Amy loved each other for such a short time, but they loved each other deeply. Kendal said that it didn’t matter where he was, as long as he was with her, he was home.
Kendal was the kindest, most loving man you would ever meet. He loved his family and friends fiercely. If you had Kendal as a friend, you had a friend for life. When he hugged you, he hugged you with his whole heart. He had the best laugh, and when you were talking to Kendal, he had a way of making everything else disappear, and you were the most important person in the world.
Kendal left this world on January 28, 2023, and took part of our hearts with him. We’ll keep our heels down and our mind in the middle until we see you again.
A memorial service for Kendal will be held at a later date. The Reinbold-Novak Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements. Online condolences may be expressed at www.reinboldfh.com
