My sympathies are with you all. He was such a wonderful person, coach and mentor. I played on the girl's tennis team in the 80's and was fortunate to play under his guidance. I have such fond memories of his sense of humor, positivity and enthusiasm. I remember meeting Kay and her great smile and laugh- just like her dad's. Mr. Tebo has been in my recent memories as I have gotten back into tennis and thinking about his instruction and drills...and having a great time! My very best wishes to you!

Dear Nancy and family. One of the nicest persons I will ever know was Norm. Hiring him as the Appleton Rec Dept tennis instructor made the program a great one. A true friend and good man. Rest peacefully Norm. God bless you. Bud

Had Coach Tebo as a Babe Ruth coach when I was 13. LOVED his always upbeat and positive approach. Did a long term substitute teaching job at Wilson soon after graduating from college, and was always welcomed with a warm hello and smile from Mr. Tebo, just one room down from where I was subbing. Kids were often seen flocking outside Mr. Tebo's room after school (if he wasn't off to a basketball practice or recording yet another win with his always prepared and superbly coached 9th grade basketball teams); a real tribute to his wonderful communication and relational skills! Sincere condolences to Mrs. Tebo and the entire family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

My heartfelt sympathy to your entire family. I can't say "thank you" enough on what an impact your dad had in teaching tennis through the Appleton Rec Department - his enthusiasm, patience and sense of humor. Thank you to Norm Tebo for the lifetime of great tennis memories and friends I have made over the years!

My sincere condolences to the family of Norm, whom I have known for many years. Norm was so well respected by so many, including those whom he touched during his teaching years and especially those who were lucky enough to have been under his tennis guidance. He will be missed. Take care and God Bless.

I had Mr. Tebo for 7th grade English. He remains one of my favorite teachers ever. I sat in the front row, second from the right. As he lectured, he always tapped my desk to a rhythm as he passed. One day, after weeks of watching me read books well below my level, he dropped — literally, and with a great boom — Les Miserables by Victor Hugo on my desk. I looked up, startled, and he said, “Stop reading drivel. This is your book now.” I read it, and more, and never looked back. He has impacted generations of students to be their best. I am so lucky to have known him. Lots of love to you all... — Kristin Hoffman-Peavler

Dear Tebo family, Coach Tebo was our family’s favorite coach. While I don’t play tennis often anymore, when I do I still hear his words of encouragement and instruction. Coach had a great sense of humor and a sparkle in his eye. He will be missed! Kay it was nice running into you a few weeks ago and our air hug was not the same. Prayers to you and your family, Kari Kranzusch Fischer
