Tim, the son of John and Helen (Greenwood) Toohey was born on June 7, 1950 in Dubuque, Iowa. He grew up in Davenport, and graduated from Davenport Assumption Catholic High School in 1969. Tim then attended Palmer Junior College. On November 23, 1973, Tim was united in marriage to Barb Burg at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Carroll. The couple lived in Carroll, where Tim worked alongside his father-in-law, Leonard Burg with Bush Hog Equipment. Tim was assigned his own territory, and the family moved as Tim worked in several different territories as a sales manager. Later, he would become a sales manager for Hardi Sprayers moving to Bettendorf. In 2009, Tim and Barb returned to Carroll where he worked for the parts department at Schenkelberg Implement in Carroll until his retirement in 2017. After his retirement Tim found his “dream job” working as a courier for St. Anthony Hospital in Carroll. This was a position that had positive impacts for him, as well as everyone he interacted with. Tim served as a former Grand Knight of the Carroll Knights of Columbus, Eucharistic Minister for Holy Spirit Church, and St. Anthony Hospital, Past President of the Holy Spirit School Board, and volunteered his time with the N.O.D.A. (No One Dies Alone) Program at St. Anthony Hospital. Tim was an avid Notre Dame Fan. He adored watching, supporting, and cheering on his children in all of their activities. He also enjoyed supporting his great-nieces, and great-nephews in their activities, as well as spending time with them and spoiling them whenever he could. Tim was a member of St. John Paul II Parish in Carroll.
