Stephen Timroth Obituary

HETTINGER, ND – Stephen Joe Timroth, 48, passed away on April 3rd, 2021, in Hettinger, ND.

Stephen was born on February 27th, 1973 in San Diego, CA. Many people would describe him as a free spirit. His heart took him many places during his life and led him to South Dakota where he resided with his wife Deana and their two children until late 2019 when he moved to Hettinger, ND.

Stephen had a great love of life and a love for the many people he had met during his life journey. He had a quick sense of humor and a way to make you laugh even on a bad day. His big heart made him easy to love, along with his generosity and willingness to help others, which was felt by the people around him. He never shied away from hard work and his love of the outdoors gave him great skills while learning the aspects of life on the ranch. Whether it was calving through spring storms, running farm equipment, or building things he always took it in stride and with enthusiasm.

Stephen had many personal accomplishments in his life, one of which was having his children’s book published in 2009. He was thrilled about this and even with him fighting dyslexia he would always have something to give his children. This first book in his Dreamworld series captured how much he loved all his children and Dreamhawk will always be that special gift to them from him. Most of all Stephen was proud of his children and would often share this with others. The love he had for them was as unconditional as any fathers’ and he always wanted and hoped for the best lives for each of them.

Stephen is survived by his wife Deana (Akers) Timroth; children; Drake of Glenwood Springs, CO, Spencer and Layla of Parachute, CO, and Jaylen and Stephanie of Lodgepole, SD; Father and mother Drew and Joanne Timroth of Heber City, UT; four sisters; Anna Timroth of Heber City, UT, Laura Gisber of Heber City, UT, Kathryn Timroth of Kerhonkson, NY, and Kindahl Atwood of Tallahassee, FL; and grandmother Laura Hasti. His passing has left a huge void in our family and lives, but he will always be remembered in our hearts.
