business in 1981, Teno’s Truck and Auto. The business is currently owned and operated by his
son, Andy. Even at 87, Andrew stopped in at the shop every day to help his son. He enjoyed
spending time with customers and seeing all his friends who came in regularly. He loved his
family and never missed attending the activities of his children, grandchildren, and
great-grandchildren. His family was the greatest joy of his life.
At Andrew’s request, his service and burial will be private with his family at the Matthew R.
Decort Funeral Home Inc. of Portage. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be
made to the Alzheimers Association or the Portage Ambulance Association.
