Jack passed away March 8, 2017 at the family ranch near Capitol.

Jack was born September 3, 1944 to Raymond and Ruth (Enerson) Teigen at the home of Mary Sornberger in Belle Fourche. He joined siblings, Cy, Barbara, Jerry and Norma.  Jack grew up on the family ranch and attended grade school at the Chimney Rock School. He graduated from Belle Fourche High School in 1962. On September 29, 1964, Jack married Sharon Kay Migotti. To this union, one son, Slade Allen Teigen was born.

Jack had many occupations over the years, most involving ranching, road and dam construction, and even gold mining. These jobs took him from Montana, to Wyoming, to South Dakota, to California, and back again. He enjoyed revisiting those places and seeing the roads, dams, and dugouts he had helped build.

Jack was an avid card player. Cribbage was his game of choice. No matter who stopped to visit him, if they didn’t know how to play Crib when they got there, they knew how by the time they left. Jack kept a chalkboard tally of players, wins, and losses.

Jack would help any person who asked. After his brother Jerry died, Jack was instrumental in helping his nephew Tait and family on the ranch. Jack became Tymber’s school transportation and daycare provider until she started high school. Jack liked to brag about his kids: Slade, Shea, Ashley, Stevie Jo, Tucker, and Tymber.

Jack is survived by his son, Slade (Linda) Teigen and children Shea, Ashley, Stevie Jo and Tucker, Helena, Mt; his partner, Sharon Teigen, Ekalaka, MT; sister Norma (Whitey) Jardee, Mill Iron, MT; niece Michelle Teigen and daughter Tymber Rose, Camp Crook, SD; and numerous other nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Ray and Ruth Teigen, siblings Cy Teigen, Jerry Teigen, Barbara Wintermute, and nephews. Tait Teigen, Randy Buck and Tayler Buck.

I just wanted to give a HUGE shout out to Stevenson Funeral Home, out here in Dickinson. Last October, they did a wonderful job with the cremation and presentation of our baby boy Forrest.
With the passing of our latest boy, Leo, we didn’t get the option to cremate him, either bury him out here or leave him in the lab until we decided where to bury him. So I contacted Stevenson Funeral Home, who so generously offered to cremate him for us so he could come home and be with his brother. AND they’re only charging us a small fee of $10 for the whole process including his urn.
I was very nervous going in, with all this abortion talk, I was scared I would get laughed at for wanting to cremate a “fetus”. But to us, he is our son, no matter how big or small.
My heart is full knowing Leo can come home finally… I left in a puddle of grateful tears.❤

If you ever end up in such a tragedy as the death of a loved one, I highly recommend Stevenson Funeral Home.. They’re some of the nicest, most generous people I’ve met out here.
