Timmer was a quiet spirit and was happiest when he was around family and friends. He was wise and intelligent beyond his handicaps. Timmer moved to mother Theresa Home in January 2011. He was a long term employee of Wacosa, and loved his routine of going to work.

Survivors include his parents, Gilbert and Esther; siblings, Linda (Don) Jacquemart, Lola (Dave) Vogel, Terry (Kim), Jesse (Patty), Jim (Darren Allen), Bill (Gloria), Betty (Greg) Gruenes, Mary (Joe) Dvorak, Mark (Lisa), and Amy Bertram (John Veeder); 30 nieces & nephews; and 17 great nieces & nephews; and his Mother Theresa family, Adrian, Hannah, and Mackenzie.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, John & Frances Brinker, Walter & Catherine Jungels; brother-in-law, Steve Morey; and numerous aunts & uncles.

A special thank you to his caregivers at Mother Theresa home for their loving care of Timmer for the last four years. You will be forever in our hearts.
