Death Notice

Dr. Walter R. Teteruck
1934 - 2015

Dr. Walter R. Teteruck of London, Ontario, quietly passed away on August 13, 2015 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Loving husband to Nadine (predeceased), brother to Linda (Al), father to Robert and father-in-law to Karen, grandfather to Brandon and Sasha and partner to Elizabeth, he will be truly missed.

Born in Toronto in 1934 to Ephraim (Frank) and Julia, he graduated McGill dental school in 1961. After completing speciality training at the University of Indiana, he taught dentistry at the University of Kentucky in Lexington. In 1967 he moved his family back to Canada, where he helped found and inaugurate the new dental school at the University of Western Ontario in London. As a professor, he taught at the dental school for over 30 years and after his “retirement" he started and directed the department of Continuing Dental Education at Western.

He taught countless dental practitioners over the course of his long career and wrote and developed numerous books and research papers. He was recognized and respected throughout the world as a leader in dental education. He was recognized by his peers throughout his career, winning numerous honours including awards from the Academy of Dentistry International and the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry.

He is fondly remembered for his kindness and dedication to helping individuals in whatever their needs. He is also remembered for his passion for automobiles (which in his younger years he rallied) and for living life to its fullest. He will be truly missed and fondly remembered by all whose lives he touched.

The family would like to express its sincere appreciation to Dr. Joy Mangel, Dr. Olga Vujovic, and the staff in the Critical Care Unit at Victoria Hospital.
