  Timothy Henry, son of Nicholas and LaDonna (Spangenberg) Reynolds, was born Dec. 20, 1967 in Hampton. He grew up in Hampton and graduated from Hampton High School in 1986. While in high school, Tim was active in football, wrestling, band and choir. He qualified for state his senior year in wrestling. After high school, Tim attended NIACC where he played football for one year. 

  In 1988, Tim began working at Eaton Corporation in Belmond. He started out working on the floor, moved up to supervisor, and eventually general foreman. Tim traveled across the United States and to Germany for work. It was at Eaton that Tim gained his nickname “Tiny”. While working full-time at Eaton, Tim earned his bachelor’s degree from Buena Vista College, graduating Suma Cum Laude. 

  During his late 20’s and early 30’s, Tim served as a member of Belmond’s police reserves and was part of the local drug task force. In 2010, Tim began working at SportsGraphics, where he was currently the operations manager. 

  Tim was united in marriage to JoEllen Dorenkamp on April 15, 1989 at Zion Reformed Church in rural Sheffield. They made their home outside of Sheffield, Hampton for several years, and then Belmond where together they raised their sons Kyle and Cole.

  Tim was an avid motorcyclist. After their children were born, he often spoke of riding motorcycles with the boys some day. They were able to fulfill that dream. Tim loved going on motorcycle trips with friends to Sturgis and northern Michigan. He and JoEllen spent as much time as they could motorcycling on summer evenings and weekends.  

  Tim was a loyal Chicago Bears and Iowa Hawkeye fan.  His larger than life personality meant he never knew a stranger, and was generally the life of the party at social gatherings. 

  Tim’s family meant the world to him. Together they enjoyed traveling and going on vacations over the years. Time spent with JoEllen, his sons, and grandchildren Addysen, Cayden and Lynden, was when Tim was the happiest.

  He was preceded in death by his grandparents, and sister Nicole Reynolds.
