Tim was known to be a fun-loving friendly cyclist and know by many in the Iowa cycling community and beyond. You'd always see him out on his bicycle.

He was a member of the Sop-n-Wet Bicycle Team.

Tim passed away on his 41st birthday.

Details regarding his death are not known at this time.

We had a chance to chat with him at the Des Moines Marathon on Oct 14th as he was cheering on the runners. He was as happy as he always was.

We think his Oct 22nd Facebook cover photo (bike in the Fall leaves) is appropriate right now.

R.I.P. our friend. You will be missed.
