Veitinger family,
My sympathy. A couple of former students spoke of “Mr. Veitinger” and Oakwood High School classroom antics this past weekend. He will never be forgotten.

After he retired from Plain Local Schools, he taught for a few years at Heritage Christian School. He taught Science, Health, and Math. He was one of my favorite teachers.
