Timothy J. Speidel
Age 68 of Apple Valley, born June 17, 1954 in Ellendale, ND to Paul & Helen Speidel, was called to heaven on January 18, 2023.
Tim grew up in Pierre, SD, until his family moved to Menomonie, WI, at the age of 10. He attended Menomonie High School and graduated from UW Stout in December of 1976 with a bachelor’s degree in Packaging Engineering. Tim married Karen Kietzer on September 17, 1977, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Menomonie, WI. They later moved to Apple Valley, MN, and raised their four boys. During his career he worked in shipping and logistics on both a domestic and international platform. He retired in 2019 and made more time to do the things that he enjoyed doing. Tim loved music and enjoyed singing tenor in the Metropolitan Men’s Choir of Minneapolis and in his church choir. He was an active member at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Burnsville, MN. Tim enjoyed gardening, fishing, watching Packer’s football, camping every summer with his family, and telling his “dad” jokes.
He is preceded in death by his father, Paul.
Tim will be dearly missed by his loving wife of 45 years, Karen; sons: Matthew, Ben (Emily), Joe (Charlotte) and Andy; grandchildren: Nate, Samantha and Katherine; mother, Helen; brother, Tom (Sue) and sister, Tammy (Blair) Lindwurm; and many other family and friends.
