In Memory of


Fred Teagle

On March 4th, 2021, Fred Teagle passed away aged 80 at Mount Edgecumbe hospice after a battle with cancer. A proud Cornishman, Fred grew up immersed in agriculture, heavily involved in Threemilestone Young Farmers Club, and surrounded by the growing Teagle Machinery business.

Fred lived next to the factory with his wife Dinah and sons Roger and Colin whilst he saw the company expand from serving local farmers to become a truly international business. As a passionate and talented engineer with an insightful, no-nonsense approach, Fred managed the production departments and ran the site at Tuckingmill for many years. Throughout his career he was always focused on continually improving processes and adopting the latest technology. Latterly Fred served as Chairman of Teagle Machinery Ltd., involved with all aspects of the company where his commitment and innovation drove the business forwards. In recent years Fred oversaw the appointment of a management team at Teagle to ensure a sustainable business for the future. Family members who remain as directors of the company include his sons, Roger and Colin, his brother John and nephew Tom.

During his ‘retirement’ Fred still remained on-hand in the business and delighted in the opportunity to share his pride in the company when hosting open days or guiding factory tours. Fred recently co-authored the company’s 75th anniversary book, sales of which raised more than £12,000 towards the Cornwall Hospice Care, of which Fred and Dinah were committed fund raisers.

Fred was proud of his Cornish roots and was always supportive of his family and friends. He was an accomplished small-bore rifle shot and was heavily involved in the City of Truro and Cornwall county rifle clubs for more than 50 years. He will be much missed by his sons Roger and Colin, his grandchildren Sam, Jenna, Alex, Amy and Adam; and his brothers David and John.
