Ronald Edward Timm, the son of Gustave Timm and Annabel (Bergquist) Timm Olson was born on January 7, 1949 in Thief River Falls, MN. Ron attended various schools and graduated from Mt. Iron High School in 1967 and immediately joined the United States Army. He proudly served his country from 1967 to 1971 spending some time in Germany. On September 28, 1968 he was united in marriage to Renae Larson at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church in Thief River Falls and this union blessed them with five children. Shortly after marriage Ron was stationed in Colorado Springs, CO. After completing his service in the Army the family moved back to the Thief River Falls area where he held a position on the police department until 1979. The family then moved to Viking, MN, where he spent a few years traveling to Drayton with his brother-in-laws to work at American Crystal Sugar Beet plant. In 1985 Ron accepted a position with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office and soon after purchased his home in Newfolden, MN which he completely rebuilt and remodeled with the help of his family.
Ron had many past times and hobbies he enjoyed throughout life; hunting, camping, fishing and walking the trails in the state parks were always his outdoors pleasures. He also enjoyed bingo and loved nothing more than spending time with his family…especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren. They always made him smile.
