Kevin Daniel Teeboom at 64 passed away peacefully on August 16, 2022 from complications of diabetes. He was born in Oahu, Hawaii and lived in Iowa, California, Ohio and Florida before settling down in NH in 1972.
Kevin joined the Army at age 17 during the end of the Vietnam war and served as a recovery specialist. After the Army he spent the majority of his career in the catering business as a specialty cook, but was also gainfully employed as a jack of all trades.
Kevin played several instruments, especially the harmonica, and excelled in football and baseball and chess. At 6ft 7inches no one messed with “Magilla.” Kevin spent 24 years in AA. He volunteered on the Board of Directors of Halfmoon Soberfest in
NH and Sober-in-the-Sun in MA. He also sponsored numerous people in rehab. Kevin obtained guardianship of Amanda Peno when she was a teenager and loved her as his own daughter. Her children Ashton, Allarie, Astoriah and Ariah were Papa’s treasured grandchildren whom he loved with all of his heart.
Kevin was always the sweetest guy in the room, full of love and encouragement in spite of his increasingly debilitating medical condition. His usual observation was, "it’s all good.”
His survivors include his wife Elizabeth (Cady) Teeboom of 33 years, mother Janice (Steenhoven) Teeboom, father Fred Teeboom and 4 siblings: Ryan with wife Cindy, Troy, Tiffany Lee with husband Brian, and Tyson. Kevin was the proud uncle of 2 nieces and 3 nephews and many great-nieces and nephews.
A service with military honors will be held at the NH State Veteran’s Cemetery in Boscawen, NH on September 19 at 1:30 PM. Family and friends are invited to attend; please arrive 15 minutes early.
