May 2, 1957 - January 25, 2021
William F. “Tek” Tekulve, age 63 of Batesville, died Monday, January 25, 2021 at University Hospital in Cincinnati, surrounded by those he loved. Born May 2, 1957 in Batesville, he is the son of the late Edna (Nee: Prakel) and Robert Tekulve. He married Helen Grossman December 28, 1974 at New Alsace, Indiana and worked for over 40 years at Batesville Casket Company and was months from retiring. Tek enjoyed being with friends and family, especially his grandkids. He loved listening to classic rock, having a beer and enjoying nature. He also liked to tinker on vehicles with his sons. You would always know Tek was home because he would be standing next to the garage, staring down the driveway waiting for everyone to come home. We can’t forget to mention that he was a die-hard Cleveland Browns fan and enjoyed watching this past season exclaiming, “ We finally got a winning season.” Tek is survived by his wife Helen; son Dustin and grandson Riley of Batesville, son Darrin and daughter-in-law Jill and grandkids Matt and Paige of Milan; daughter Miranda Tekulve of Batesville; sister and brother-in-law Bev and Ken Wehr of Illinois; brother and sister-in-law’s Jon and Kathy Tekulve of Milan, Steve and Carol Spencer of Batesville; sister-in-law Susan Tekulve of Batesville as well as many nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, he is also preceded in death by his son Josh and brothers Bob and Jim Tekulve. Tek will be greatly missed by his family and friends. Everyone just picture him in heaven, drinking beer and cranking some Led Zeppelin. Visitation is Saturday, January 30th, from 9 – 10:30 a.m. at the funeral home. The current Governor’s mandate requires all attendees wear a facemask and observe physical distancing. The mask must cover the individual’s nose and mouth at all times and no more than 25 people will be allowed in the building at a time. Funeral services follow at 11 a.m. at St. Louis Church with Rev.
