Tim was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Burrell Scott, and Bonnie Steffan; and paternal grandparents, Orson and Evelyn Johnson.

Tim was a Patoka High School Graduate of 1989 and a very competitive Patoka Warrior in baseball and basketball. He played as a forward on the 1989 Patoka Basketball Team that won Regionals and went on to the Sectional Championship. He graduated from Vatterott College in St. Charles, MO. After graduation, Tim worked as a maintenance engineer in both the states of Ohio and Kentucky. Tim went on to own his own business, “Applied Industrial Technology” in Chesterfield, MO. He then worked for Nascote in Nashville and more recently was a dedicated employee of Swan Corporation in Centralia. Tim attended City Hope Church in Centralia. He was a member of the Centralia Moose Lodge 1219 and was also a member of the Bears Club of Centralia. He was a caring man and loved to help others. One way he gave back was by participating in Jeep Runs for charity with his wife Terrie. Tim loved to stay active with his horses as he was a caring owner, and enjoyed horse races. He was a fun guy to be around always bringing people together. Tim enjoyed playing golf, washers, and watching demolition derbies. He was a big St. Louis Cardinals fan, and would cheer them on to their wins at the stadium and from the comfort of his favorite chair. Tim was a master at growing vegetable gardens and making mouthwatering salsa. He had great cooking skills and loved to smoke meat and share his delicious food with family and friends. Tim loved being a grandpa and could be known to spoil his grandchildren, just a little. His family and friends will cherish so many memories of fun and laughter and will carry on the legacy of Tim’s life.
