A Rock Falls business owner died Saturday of injuries sustained in a snowmobile accident in Wisconsin.
Timothy W. “Rottweiler” Litwiller, 46, of Milledgeville, owner of Industrial Coating at 1108 E. 17th St., was riding a trail in Mercer, Wis. when his sled left the trail and struck several trees, Iron County Sheriff Tony Furyk said in a news release.
Alcohol and speed are believed to be factors, the release said. The accident is under investigation by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
Litwiller, a 1986 Milledgeville High School graduate, was a member of the Milledgeville Mens Club and the Elkhorn Creek Runners snowmobile club.
He is survived by his wife, Susan, and children, Troy, 16, and Megan, 13.
