Tim was preceded in death by his aunt, Dawn Savage in 1972. Friends may call from 1 to 4 p.m. (CST) on Thursday, Feb. 14, at St. John Neumann Church in Spalding. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 4 p.m. (CST) on Thursday at church with Fr. Michael Vichich officiating. A luncheon will follow Mass in the church parish hall.
