Norman Eugene Teigland was born June 18, 1949 in Marshall, MN to Alton and Audrey (Bardahl) Teigland.

The oldest of three brothers (Kenneth and Douglas), Norman loved growing up on a farm.  Tragically, he lost his dad Alton at age 10 but was blessed to later have a wonderful stepfather Walter Bengtson and his sister Karen.  He graduated from Canby High School in 1968 and Canby Vocational School in 1970.  Norman married Lois Hanzlik on August 8th 1970.

Norman and Lois were blessed with two sons, Jeremy and Eugene, and later two wonderful daughter-in-laws, Maria and Bridget.

Norman started driving truck for his stepfather Walter Bengtson in 1970.
He later began a trucking business with his brother Kenneth in 1979.  Then in 1994 the Teigland Bros expanded into farming.

Norman loved his family and friends very much and greatly enjoyed socializing with them.  He
especially enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren.  Norman attended Bethel Fellowship Church in Minneota for over 30 years.

For Norman it wasn't just about going to church but having a living relationship with his savior Jesus Christ.  This faith helped him and his family through the difficult years of his illness.  His contagious joy and unique way of communicating with people will be greatly missed.

He is survived by wife, Lois of Canby, son Jeremy Teigland and his wife Maria of Madison, son Eugene and his wife Bridget of Becker, grandchildren, Raelyn and Nicholas, Joshua, Matthew, Benjamin, and Ella, his mother Audrey of Canby, siblings Kenneth, Douglas, and Karen of Canby.

He was preceded in death by his father Alton Teigland and stepfather Walter Bengtson.
