A Life of Love and Dedication

Born on February 10, 1961, to Gene and Jean McGillis in Superior, WI, Tim’s life was marked by a deep commitment to his family. After graduating from Superior High School in 1979, he pursued a degree in business at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. It was during his tenure at James River Corporation in Neenah, WI that Tim’s path crossed with the love of his life, Judith Tuttle. In 1984, he embraced a sales position at Badger Plug Company in Greenville, WI, which would shape his professional journey.

Tim cherished his role as a “girl-dad” and took immense pride in supporting his daughters’ endeavors, from their sports activities to their show choir performances. The family spent cherished moments together, whether on the boat during summer weekends, attending concerts, or embracing the Wisconsin tradition of tailgating and cheering on the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

Embracing Life’s Passions
