Timothy “Timmer” John Running, age 63, of Sugar Camp, Wis., left to be with the Lord on Sunday, May 7, 2023, with his wife at his side.

He was born in Appleton, Wis., on Aug. 5, 1959, to Jim and Shirley Running.

Tim moved to Sugar Camp when he was ten. He grew up helping his family run their campground.

He graduated from Three Lakes High School in 1977.

Tim was employed in many capacities, but enjoyed many years at Pitlik and Wick, and as a self-employed bobcat and plowing business. He was most proud of owning and operating a bus which he drove for the Three Lakes School District. He loved his 4K students asking, “Mr. Tim, are we there yet?”

Tim was full of life and enjoyed each day to its fullest, whether it was romping through the woods on the “blue machine”, digging something with the excavator, trying a new restaurant, cheering on the Brewers, Bucks and Badgers, snowmobiling, enjoying a sunset over Lost Lake, or sitting in front of the fireplace.

He treasured his time with family, friends, and trusted companion, Stormy. Tim always had a good story to tell. His smile was infectious and made all those around him feel good. He will be remembered in our hearts always!

Tim is survived by his wife, Marci; children, Grant (Allie), Lance (Tiffany), Ethan (Naomi) and Ella; grandchildren, Cameron, Addelynn and Gavin; siblings, Rick (Lisa), Russ (Debby), Mike (Traci) and Lisa (Jack) Wales; parents, Jim (Kathy); and other family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Shirley; and his first wife, Cheryl.

A memorial service will be at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 16, 2023, at Northlife Church (formerly St. Germain Evangelical Free Church) in St. Germain, Wis. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service.
