Beison--August 18, 1962 to May 23, 2015.
Our dear son and
brother died unexpectedly on May 23, 2015. Tim was one of six children,
raised in a loving home in Highland, Indiana. His early childhood was like
most, spent with the neighborhood kids, playing Kick The Can, Ghosts In The
Graveyard, swimming, and riding his bike to the Dairy Queen. As a young teen
his passion was baseball, and his family still remembers his reign as
"Home-run King" in the Highland Little League. He grew to love golf,
following in his parent's footsteps, however he wasn't known for his
hole-in-ones, but the dimples and bruise left on his belly after being hit
on the course by a stray "Fore!" He often showed his fishing prowess at his
grandparent's home on Winan's Lake in Brighton, Michigan.
He married Kimberly
Zaremba in 1984, and they were blessed over the course of their marriage
with three beautiful children, Tony (Kristin), Amanda, and Ashley. All three
inherited their father's smile. The family moved to Burlington, Wisconsin,
where Tim was a truck driver. In his down-time, pleasing the picky palate
with his creativity in the kitchen was a joy of his, as was gardening. He
became a grandfather to two delightful boys, Sylas and Alexander, and took
particular joy in how gifted and adorable they were.
Tim was always
loved. Loved by many. However, he had a life-long battle with mental illness
that created a shadow that darkened his daily life. He, in the last year,
reaffirmed his faith in God and found the Book of Psalms to be a source of
comfort: "I will give thanks to The Lord because of his righteousness; I
will sing the praises of the name of The Lord Most High." (Psalm 7:17) His
family knows that his broken mind is healed and he has found peace.
Until we meet
again, Tim. We will always love you. Mom and Dad (Robert and Roberta), Karen
(Paul) Nelson, Liz Beison (Dave Lopez), Jennifer (Tony) Gadzala, Christine
(Erik) Makowiecki, and Andy (Megan) Beison. Nieces and nephews: Jason
(Lori), Kristen (Adam), Miranda, Alec, Lorelai, Noah and Tyler.
His family asks
that any donations in Tim's name be made to Porter-Starke Services (
