Timothy Dale Williams was born October 13, 1951 in Newton, Iowa. He attended Newton High School and served our country during the Viet Nam War as a soldier with the U.S. Army. He was awarded the Silver Star for actions taken while serving with the 7th Calvary.
Tim enjoyed spending time with his “grandboys” as he called them. He was able to take them golfing, and started a yearly tradition of picking out a Christmas tree and cutting it down. He was looking forward to his grandsons coming out to fish his pond this summer.
The last years of his life, he enjoyed spending time with his wife Carol, his family and friends. He enjoyed going to the “office” and playing cards with his friends and helping his good friend Gary Kriegel.
