Timothy Itzen peacefully passed away at his home on December 9, 2023 with his family by his side.

A Celebration of Life was held on December 14, 2023 at 5 p.m. at the Elks Lodge in Clewiston, FL.

Tim was born August 1, 1955 in Wheaton, MN. He grew up on the family farm where he farmed with his brothers until 1986. Graduated from Herman High School in 1974. He married his high school sweetheart, Brenda Volker on April 30, 1977. Attended Alexandria Technical College in Alexandria, MN. Graduated from a 2-year Hydraulic program in 1988. This brought his family to Clewiston, FL where he worked at Hydraulic Supply, then onto Motion Industry until his health caused him to retire in 2019.

Tim enjoyed his time at River Ranch (his happy place, he called it) where he and his family would ride the trails on the ATV’s, go mudding, and sit by a campfire. Spent all their Thanksgivings there where he was the “Master Head Cook and Smoker King.”

Tim loved spending time with his grandson Ethan, whether it was taking him fishing, River Ranch riding or attending his baseball games. His kids were his pride and joy and was their hero.

Tim passed away after losing his 6 ½ year battle with cancer. He is survived by his loving wife Brenda of 46 years; daughters Ashley Itzen-Cumbow and husband Joel Cumbow – Jacksonville, FL; Lacy Itzen and grandson Ethan – Clewiston FL; Jessica Itzen – TN and a son Tyler Itzen – Gainesville, FL; sister Lois Maki – Minneapolis, MN; sister-in-law Linda Itzen – Ft Dodge, IA; sister Marylee Rath – Morris, MN; Patricia and Mike Ludwig – Monticello, MN; brother Randy Itzen and Cindy from Herman, MN; sister Margo Hawkinson – Alexandria, MN; brother Jeff Itzen – Herman, MN; many nieces and nephews and 5 grandchildren. Tim is also survived by his in-laws Glenn and Dolly Heins, Nampa, ID; Dot (Wally) Heins, Goodville, VA; Mike and Gretchen Volker, Woodbridge, VA; Terry and Maureen Volker, Barrett, MN; Brenda (Jeff) Volker, Morris, MN; Bill and Darlene Volker, Herman, MN; Patti (Eddie) Dummer, Alexandria, MN; Kevin (Nancy) Volker and friend Amanda, Herman, MN.

 Preceded in death by brother-in-laws, Wally Heins, Jeff Volker, Eddie Dummer and sister-in-law, Nancy Volker. Blessed be the memory of Tim Itzen.

Tim is preceded in death by his parents, George and Margaret Itzen, brothers Lowell (Buddy) Itzen and William (Billy) Itzen, brother-in-law Richard Rath and niece Caroline Rath.

Tim will be greatly missed by his family and the many friends that he has met in his lifetime.
