Verl Ervin Timm was born March 20, 1940, to Ervin and Verla (Gager) Timm in Hawkeye.

Verl worked at Wilbur Ford Sales for 42 years and retired as co-owner. 

He was an active member of Zion Lutheran Church, as well as the West Union Rotary Club. 

Verl enjoyed traveling with his family. He loved his time camping, fishing, mushroom hunting, and simply being outdoors.

He was extremely proud of his family and will always be remembered for the way he brought great joy to his grandchildren. His greatest passion was his marriage of 52 years to his loving wife, Pat. Together they led a wonderful life together of dancing, playing cards, and spending time with close friends and family. Verl was greatly loved and will be missed.

Preceding him in death were his parents; three brothers, Darvin, Jerald, and Dennis Timm; a sister, June McLeish; and a great-grandson.

Verl is survived by his wife, Pat; a son, Marty Timm of Freeburg, Mo.; a daughter, Beth (Ken) Heying of Cedar Rapids; five grandchildren, Kindra, Kyle, and Kortney Timm and Alexander and Halle Heying; a great-grandson; two sisters, Peggy Cabulke of Manchester and Joyce Pattison of Fayette; and a brother, Dean Timm of Boone.
