Joel Henry Teubert, age 51, of Glencoe, passed away Wednesday, April 15, 2015, at his home.
He was born Aug. 23, 1963, in Glencoe, the son of Albert “Sonny” and Mary Ann (Carriere) Teubert. Joel was baptized as an infant Sept. 8, 1963, and was confirmed in his faith March 2, 1977.
He attended parochial school at St. Pius X Catholic School, and graduated with the class of 1981 from the Glencoe High School. Joel furthered his education at the Hutchinson Vo-Tech, where he received a diesel mechanic degree.
Joel was united in marriage to Joyce Fasching April 27, 1990, at the Church of St. Pius X in Glencoe. Joel and Joyce made their home on a farm in Glencoe. Their marriage was blessed with two children, Jacob and Genevieve “Jenny.”
Joel owned and operated Teubert Construction, and also held seasonal employment at Seneca Foods in Glencoe.
He was a member at Church of St. Pius X in Glencoe, a past member of the Glencoe Jaycees, and was active in the McLeod Fish and Wildlife Conservation.
First and foremost, Joel loved his family. He was known to drop what he was doing to lend a helping hand to anyone, and many knew him as “Uncle JoJo.”
Joel also loved his eye rolling jokes, and would share them with anyone who would listen. He enjoyed softball, and lately was a local umpire for the sport. Other hobbies included fishing, hunting, shooting pool, grilling, playing cards, and cribbage. Perhaps his favorite pastime was to spend time at his lake cabin with his family and friends, where there was peace and solitude.
Joel is survived by his wife, Joyce Teubert of Glencoe; son Jacob Teubert and his special friend, Courtney Birkholtz, of Brookings, SD; daughter Jenny Teubert of Glencoe; father Albert “Sonny” Teubert of Glencoe; mother-in-law Frances Knick of Hutchinson; and siblings Eugene Teubert of Glencoe, Andrew Teubert of Norwood Young America, Peter Teubert and his wife, Tina, Jane Teubert, and Paul Teubert, all of Glencoe.
Joel is further survived by brothers and sisters-in-law, Barb Alsleben and her husband, Sid, and Mike Fasching and his wife, Barb, all of Hutchinson; nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Mary Ann Teubert; and father-in-law, Vern Knick.
