Councillor Teasdale was elected to serve on Guisborough Town Council in 2011 and had twice been Mayor of Guisborough in 2013 and 2017.

Among many of his achievements he was also the Chairman of the Friends of Guisborough Cemetery, a founding member of the Guisborough Town Hall Gateway Project. He enjoyed fundraising and working closely with both Guisborough & District Friends of Cancer Research and Guisborough & East Cleveland Sea Cadets.

Councillor Teasdale was a proud family man and leaves two children, five grandchildren and his wife of 50 years, Honor.

He will be sorely missed by the community he served, Guisborough Town Councillors and staff alike.
