Getting your Trinity Audio player ready ...

Our beloved husband, father of four, passed from this life on Thursday, June 20, 2024, doing what he loved: flying.

Sage Stephens Teichert was born on August 20, 1980, to Stephen Wade and Julie Stephens Teichert in Payson, Utah. He was raised in Benjamin, UT, Cokeville, WY, Oregonhouse, CA and Ruby Valley, NV. As a young boy Sage loved to watch the planes fly overhead as he worked on the family ranch pushing cows. This is where his love of flying began and remained with him his entire life.

After graduating from high school, Sage served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Independence, Missouri.

On July 7, 2005, he married the love of his life, Sarah Gardiner in the Manti, Utah Temple. Sage then attended college where he received an associate degree in aviation science from Utah Valley University, and later an associate degree in Sales Science.

Sage and Sarah were blessed with four beautiful children, and Sage loved spending time teaching and being with his family.

Sage was a master craftsman and could fix, restore or build anything – including an airplane. He loved skiing, hanging out and adventuring with his family. He worked hard to provide for his family, whether that be in various sales positions, building cabinets, ranching, flight instructing or aerial application (crop-dusting). He was a devoted father and husband. He was a member of the National Aerial Applicators Association and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Sage is survived by his wife of nearly 19 years, Sarah Teichert; his four children, Flint, Eliza, Steele and Eden Teichert; his parents, Stephen and Julie Teichert; his siblings, Seth & Natalie Teichert, Gina & Brandon McDonald, Wes Teichert, Calli & Austin Knudsen, and Tayler Teichert. He was preceded in death by his sister, Tessa Bell.
