EPWORTH—Timothy John Letner (Tim Bob) passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2021, at his home in Epworth, Iowa. He was 66 years old.

Tim was born and raised in Sheldon, Iowa, where he attended school and graduated in 1973. He worked construction for a few years, then went to college at Mankato State, and ultimately earned a Master’s of Education degree. He settled in Epworth, Iowa, where he taught in the Western Dubuque School system until his retirement.

Tim enjoyed running, hunting, fishing and the outdoors. He took several summer western trips with some select high school students to enjoy the Rockies and learn about the history of the West. He loved his dog, Jenny. He was a masterful woodworker. He made several pieces of furniture for his own home and a Grandmother Clock and gun case for his mother’s home.

Tim was grateful for the devoted and caring friendship of his neighbors, Dick and Ann Besler.

Tim is survived by his siblings: Lisa (Tom) Youngers of rural Archer, Lori (Keith) Anderson of rural Alcester SD, and Rich (Joy) Letner of Sheldon and many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Claude and Shirley Letner; a brother, Claude Jr.; and his dog, Jenny.
