Keven Glen Teague was born May 16, 1973, in Fort Worth, Texas. He grew up in Lakeside and graduated from Lake Worth High School before joining the United States Navy and serving aboard the USS Guadalcanal out of Norfolk, Virginia. After an honorable discharge, Keven returned home to Texas and joined Training Class 49 of the Fort Worth Fire Department. He worked his way up the ranks and was a highly respected captain at the time of his passing, after serving the people of Fort Worth for over two decades.
Keven loved travel, the outdoors, hunting, and fishing. On his off days he could often be found grilling and listening to classic country music on the back porch. Most of all, he was a loving husband, father, and family man. His family took priority above all else, and he rarely missed a soccer game, dance recital, school program, or family gathering. He is survived by his wife, Deedra; son, Rhys; and daughter, Penelope.
In spring 2019, Keven began suffering from medical complications that were eventually attributed to cancer. His illness was highly aggressive, and he passed away May 24, 2019, within days of his diagnosis. Although Keven’s passing has left an unfillable hole in the lives of his loved ones, the outpouring of love, support, and brotherhood from the Fort Worth Fire Department has been a great solace.
Keven served, assisted, and saved many lives in the short time he was given. He will forever be a hero.
