(1942 – 2014)
Mr. Ralph Judson Teague, Jr., worked for the Alabama Cooperative Extension System in Communications and Marketing. He worked in the early days of technology and helped to bring Extension into the computer age. His office was on the second floor of Duncan Hall near the Main Frame technology system used in administrative functions.
Outside of Extension, he was very active in Special Olympics, and it soon became a passion for him. He was also active with the Alabama Department of Conservation in the Firearm Safety and Shooting Sports program. He and other Extension interested in Hunter Safety began the path for the 4-H S.A.F.E. program today. He believed that children should enjoy the outdoors and helped them find ways to explore the bigger world.
Mr. Teague grew up in the “good old days” when there was a lot of discipline and expectation in the home. His mother was a respected school teacher so he had to walk the “tight rope” while in school. He managed to do so by obeying the rules and respecting his elders. He came from a home that was respected in the community.
He loved his wife, Mrs. Judy Teague, and sons, Chip and Kelly Teague. He died after suffering from Alzheimer’s on August 19, 2014.
The Alpha Pi Chapter of Epsilon Sigma Phi honors and remembers Mr. Ralph Judson Teague, Jr., by placing his name on the dedicatory plaque of the Memorial Chapel.
