Timm was born Sept. 3, 1940 in Lamoure, N.D. to Arnold and Alma (Ronning) Timm. He served his country in the U.S. Army. He married Lois Mortenson on June 1, 1963 in Hallock, Minn. They have lived in the St. Joseph area since 1977. He worked in the printing industry and was self-employed for the last 15 years. Timm was a member of Westwood Community Church where he served on the Shepherding Committee, and was involved in bible study, greeters and volunteered in the kitchen. He enjoyed restoring old cars, volunteering at the Salvation Army, fishing, playing and coaching hockey, the Minnesota Wild and Vikings, taking his grandkids for rides and playing cards. Timm was a jack of all trades, strong-willed, quiet, kind and humble person. He loved his family and friends.
Survivors include his wife; daughter and sons, Jody (Russell) Navratil of Sartell, Bryan (Patty) of Rice, and Marc (Heather) of St. Cloud; and grandchildren, Jakob, Joshua, Julia, Jenna, Jordan, Austin, Spencer, Kallie, Dylan, Taylor, Harley, Pyper and Skylar; and his buddy Skooby.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Charles “Chuck;” and sisters, Melvina Dahley and Joyce Jones.
The family would like to thank their Westwood Community Church family and many wonderful friends, relatives and neighbors for the love and support that has been shown to them; and also to St. Croix Hospice for the excellent care given to Timm.
