William G. “Mr. Bill” Timblin, 79, went to his heavenly home on Tues.
April 15, 2014 at his home on the west shore of Lake Winnebago.
He was born on Aug. 20, 1934 in the Town of Osceola, the son of George
and Veronica Braun Timblin. On Nov. 24, 1957, Bill married Marianne
Engel at St. Michael’s Catholic Church, Dotyville. They farmed together
on the Timblin homestead in the Town of Osceola. Bill and Marianne
started their trucking business in the 1960’s and formed TTI in 1977. He
was a member of Shepherd of the Hills Catholic Parish, the Campanile
Society of the Milwaukee Archdiocese, the Teamsters and the Farm Bureau.
Bill enjoyed working, golfing, going to football and baseball games,
fishing and casino trips. But most of all he enjoyed family time and
that so many family members were involved in the family business. He
was also a great supporter of local organizations.
Those left behind to cherish his memory include his wife Marianne, his
sons Bill (Sue) of Campbellsport and Mike (Amy) of Eden, his daughters
Jeannie Timblin, Diane (Mike) Gantner and Janet (Pat) Lorrigan all of
