Thank you to the Bonners for taking such good care of Tim. In addition, Tim has worked at Vern’s Greenhouse since he was a young man, Jerry thank you for always being there for him. Growing up Tim was involved in Boy scouts, earning the rank of Life scout.
Tim was someone who always loved life and so many different types of adventures he could have. Always looking to bring people together for some sort of event or activity & would be the one to instigate plans for family & friends. Tim loved the outdoors and deer hunting at the family homestead in Cook, with his family. He loved fishing with the group at Lake of the Woods, on Lake Superior on the OJB or a serene trip into Trout lake & Orinack, at least when the fish were biting. Recently Tim took some extra interest in local politics, serving on the Planning and Zoning Commission for the city of Mt. Iron.
