Tim worked at several jobs, including American Hoist and Derrick in St. Paul, Clopay Garage Door Company in Baldwin, and SMC in Somerset.
His favorite hobbies were hunting and fishing. He enjoyed cheering for the Green Bay Packers, watching old western TV shows, being outside, and country music – especially Reba.
