Mason Patten Teel was born April 4, 2000 in Moscow, ID to Tony and Stephanie Teel. Mason was on this earth for a short time but will be in our hearts forever.
Mason was a 2018 graduate from Orofino High School. Mason’s first love was music. Mason played the piano and all percussion instruments as well as being self-taught on guitar and baritone saxophone. Mason played nearly any instrument he touched and he played them amazingly well. He loved to share his gift of music with friends and family.
Mason was kind hearted and always willing to help strays, be it animal or human. Mason loved animals and every animal that Mason came into contact with the feeling was mutual. Mason loved the outdoors and enjoyed spending time with his family and extended family in this environment. Mason had a kind spirt that touched many lives.
Mason is survived by his parents and sister, Trinity Teel. Aunts and Uncles; Jen & Mike Burke, Pam & Rob Sawyer, Cindy & Nick Miller, Gina Lynn Teel, Jackie & Stan Hall.
