Memories

I am so sorry to hear of Ole's passing. I remember my dad taking me to Zumbrota or Zumbrota Falls where there was a parade. Ole was there with a bull. I got to ride the bull. I believe I was seven. Now if Ole is really not in this story, I don't know who the clown or bull's owner is/was because all of my life, I have thought that Ole was in this sotry. May God comfort you in your loss. My love to all of you.... My brother Mark has been doing a lot of research on the Teskes. If interested, you might want to contact him. He lives in Albert Lea, and is the administrator of the Good Samaritan Nursing Home. Greg

Memories

Memories of Ole will last for years. We especially remember him when he would come in the bookstore and tell a story or two. We still carry his "business" card - the one that is a ticket for nothing. We have shared that and other memories of Ole with many. Faribault's history is richer and better preserved because of Ole. Connie may remember Sandie (Radke) from school & Walther league.
