Tim’s strong work ethic started at a young age doing odds and ends jobs including working at the bakery and Kooima Manufacturing as a welder. He then began working at Midwest Molding, working his way up to co-owner of Midwest Molding and Fastek. After a failed attempt at retirement, he worked at Valley Machine in Rock Valley, IA until early 2020.
Tim loved sports. He was an avid golfer who also enjoyed bowling, darts, and playing pool and softball. He was a diehard Bears and Iowa Hawkeye fan and had a passion for dirt track racing but his biggest joy in life was spending time with his family.
