Bearl Teasley passed away on October 16 in Rio Dell at the age of 86.

He was a long-time employee of the Pacific Lumber Company, where he retired. While working for PL he lived in Scotia and then moved to Fortuna after retiring, and then to Rio Dell this year where he passed away peacefully.

He also had a wood toy business that saw his toys shipped around the world and you can find many of them still around.

Bearl was well liked in the community and would be the first to volunteer if anyone needed help. He is now back in the loving arms of his wife, Joyce, and in the presence of God. He will forever be in our hearts and will be missed.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Joyce. He is survived by his three sons — Ken, Keith, Mike — and their families.

You can celebrate his life by making a donation to a Alzheimer or cancer charity. Plans for a celebration of his life will be announced when information is available.
