Tim was employed by MITO RV for several years and had recently taken a position in Sales with CleerVision in Elkhart. In his spare time, he enjoyed relaxing with a good “JSK” cigar, hanging out with his friends, the “OG-9” and watching the Chicago Cubs.
More that anything, he loved his wife and children. Tim spent time with Gage coaching baseball and traveling with his team, grilling and smoking food outdoors with Gavin, and being an awesome Dad to Bella. Tim and Bella loved attending her school’s annual “Daddy/Daughter” dance each year. He will be remembered as a hard working and dedicated father who put the needs of others first.
