Timothy Jeppesen was born July 24, 1958, in Harlingen, Texas, to Lyle D. and Colleen E. Kitelinger Jeppesen. He is the eldest of three children, Laurie Petersen of Exira, IA, and Duane Jeppesen of Kansas City, MO. Tim graduated from high school and went on to complete a BS in Business from Buena Vista College in Storm Lake, Iowa.
He was married to Christine D. Kirsch on November 22, 1980 in Brayton, Iowa. They began an amazing journey, lasting over 32 years.
In 1981, he began working for Farm Credit Association. He worked in offices in Ocheyedan and Sheldon, Iowa prior to moving to the office in Hannibal.  He continued to work for the association (now known as FCS Financial) until the time of his death.
In 1981, Tim surrendered his life to the Lord and spent his life humbly serving others.
His legacy of faith lives on in the lives of his children: Jennifer Lewis of Liberty, Missouri and Daniel Jeppesen of Kansas City, Missouri, and his grandchildren: Levi (3) and Silas (1).  His third grandchild is due in June.     
He lived with faith, integrity, humor, and courage.  He loved the Lord, his family and friends, and fishing. He asked for very little for himself. He spoke volumes using very few words. He will be deeply missed.
Memorial contributions may be made to Immanuel Baptist Church under the Tim Jeppesen Memorial Fund.
Pallbearers will be Duane Jeppesen, Paul Petersen, Gary Magill, Shane Albertson, Jeff Heibel, and Bruce Kirsch.
