David Timm, 82, passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 26, 2021, at his home in Carrington, ND.
David was born May 5, 1939, to Harold and Lyd Timm in Hutchinson, MN. He grew up in Arlington, MN, where he was baptized and confirmed at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. After he graduated from high school in 1957, David went to college at Gustavus Adolphus at St. Peters, MN, and then on to the University of Minnesota for Pre-law. The selective service was going to call, so David answered his call to duty and joined the Air Force. He was stationed at the Minot Air Force Base where he served as an air traffic controller. In 1964 David married Claudia Stokes. He was discharged from the military in 1966, after which they moved to Arlington, MN, where he joined his father in the grain elevator business. After the elevator was sold in 1976, they moved to Carrington where he worked for Gerber Industries as a sales representative, as well as a designer of agriculture elevator equipment until he retired.
David loved hunting, fishing and music. He was a wonderful musician who toured with his own band in college. His favorite band was Whoopee John, as well as other Big Bands. David would hunt and fish in Canada, MN and ND with his Labrador retrievers. He always had a Labrador for a companion to train, hunt with and enjoy with Claudia. His black labs were most dear to him.
David is survived by his wife Claudia, sisters-in-law, Carolyn Geston, Bismarck, ND, Ivy (Bruce) Parizek, Chippewa Falls, WI, and Barb Rathjen, Hazen, ND, and brother-in-law Marlin (Joanne) Stokes, Carrington, ND, and many nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his parents, brothers-in-law John Geston and Darrell Rathjen, Judd and Emma Stokes and many of his black labs.
In lieu of flowers, please make memorials to the Carrington Cemetery, Carrington, ND.
Visitation will be Thursday, July 1, 2021 from 9:30AM – 10:30AM followed by a Funeral Service at 10:30AM all at Grace Lutheran Church, Carrington.
Burial will be at the Carrington Cemetery, Carrington, ND.
