The 24-year-old Phoenix native earned a master's degree in counseling psychology in June. He was a lovable person who made friends quickly and had a lot of them, said his grandfather, Carlo Iacovelli of Barnegat, N.J.
As a boy, Teves moved from New Jersey to Phoenix with his parents. Iacovelli and his wife wintered there and spent a lot of time with him."He was what you might call an ideal grandson," Iacovelli said. "He was a fun guy. He loved to eat." Teves was planning to become a psychiatrist, his grandfather said.
