MILLEDGEVILLE – Timothy W. “Rottweiler” Litwiller, 46, of Milledgeville, died Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014, of injuries sustained in a snowmobile accident.

Tim was born Jan. 17, 1968, in Sterling, the son of Lester Litwiller and Donna Reed. He attended Milledgeville High School, where he graduated in 1986. He married Susan VanKampen on Nov. 4, 1995. They were blessed with two amazing children, Troy, 16, and Megan, 13.

Tim was a devoted, loving father and husband. He was his children’s biggest supporter and loved spending time with them. He worked very hard to build and manage his own business and home. He was a lover of the outdoors, spending much of his time boating, fishing, and snowmobiling. There is nothing more he loved doing than vacationing in Wisconsin with his family. His friends were a huge part of his life, and everyone loved his fun-loving, witty personality.

Tim was the owner of Industrial Coating in Rock Falls. He was a member of the Milledgeville Mens Club and Elkhorn Creek Runners snowmobile club.

Tim will be greatly missed by his wife, Susan, and two children, Troy and Megan, all of Milledgeville; his mother, Donna (Rich) Strohman of Green Valley, Ariz.; his father, Lester Litwiller of Rock Falls; two sisters, Dawn (Scott) Bryson of Vernon Hills and Teri (Danny) Schroeder of Springfield; his grandmother, Leone Reed of Sterling; and several extended family members.

He was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Clarence “Bud” Reed and Eugene Litwiller; his grandmother, Jean Fransen; and his great-grandparents.

Visitation is from 4 to 8 p.m. Monday at Trinity Lutheran Church in Milledgeville. The funeral is 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at the church, with the Rev. Rick Koch officiating. Burial will be at Bethel Cemetery. 

In lieu of flowers, a memorial will be established.
