Tim was employed with the City of Iowa City, where he was a refuse worker since April of 1990. Tim operated a lawn care and snow removal service and farmed the family farm.

He enjoyed tractorcades, tractor pulls and annually attending the Iowa State Fair. This year Tim took part in the WMT Tractorcade. Most important to Tim was his wife, family and friends. Tim did not know a stranger.
