d. September 28, 2019

1949 ~ 2019

Prime Teerlink passed away on September 27th, 2019 after courageously surviving Mantle Cell Lymphoma for 8 years.

Prime was known for his bold, determined, playful character, his unyielding work ethic and optimistic attitude. He was born to Leo and Lorna Teerlink in SLC, Utah. He served as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the West Central States Mission. He later attended the University of Utah, but avidly cheered for his BYU sports teams.

In 1978, Prime was sealed to his wife, Nancy, for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple. Prime's boundless energy drove him to successfully operate his own painting and home building businesses. He served in a variety of church positions including bishopric counselor, elders quorum president, young men's president, special needs advisor, gospel doctrine teacher, and spent his last 12 years serving the patrons as an ordinance worker at the Draper Utah Temple.

He is survived by his loving wife, Nancy, who he fiercely adored. They created a happy home together. They have six children (Somer Squire (Shane), Jamie Jones (Jeff), JP Teerlink (Kellie), Amanda Casper (Ryan), Jordan Teerlink (Barbara), Tyler Teerlink) and seventeen grandchildren, who brought him so much joy. He lived to make their lives better by loving them and serving them tirelessly.
