Tim was born Feb. 16, 1957, to Patrick and Marie (Schauff) McCann. He grew up and attended high school in Cassville, Wis.

On Nov. 23, 2002, he was united in marriage to Christine Sikkema at Olde St. Ann’s Church in Long Grove. During retirement, Tim enjoyed working as a driver for Lindquist Ford over the past 12 years. He had a passion for officiating boys’ basketball and had done so for over 20 years, including the Iowa State Basketball Tournament. In his free time, Tim loved helping on his in-laws’ vegetable farm, tending to his flowers, and attending his grandchildren’s recreational events.
