Favorite ASD Feature: “My favorite ASD feature is the compassion and patience your operators offer to our clients,” Dick says. “They do a spectacular job for our 165 year old family funeral and furniture firm, now in its 5th generation.”
Favorite Pastime: 4th Generation Funeral Director, Dick Teeter, has a deep love and appreciation for Hudson vehicles, which were made between 1909 until 1957. Dick’s parents drove Hudsons for many years and he also owned one in college. Then, in 1991, Dick said he got the “Hudson bug” again and purchased his 49’ Hudson Sedan with 42,000 miles on it. He has driven it 25,000 miles since then. Dick has also attends Hudson Club events from coast to coast. His longest trip was 1900 miles round trip to Nashville.
