Timothy, “Yimmy”, son of Martin James Young and Evelyn Edna (Moeller) Young /Sterner was born on Monday, October 22, 1962 in Davenport, Iowa. He graduated with the Tipton Class of 1981. After graduation, Yimmy moved to Texas and then to Minnesota. While in Minnesota, he lived with his sister Laurie for a short time and worked in the wood shop with her husband Gary. He met his future wife in 1987 and on September 3, 1989, Timothy married Peggi Sue Peterick in Hackensack, MN. Tim and Peggi were blessed with two beautiful boys during their ten year marriage. 
While living in Minnesota, Yimmy discovered his God given talent for carpentry. For years, he built houses, bid on houses and built “Scamp” Campers and Travel Trailers. He was also known to work at lumberyards and after his move back to Tipton, he worked for Troy’s Lawn and Landscape. In his free time, Yimmy enjoyed bass fishing, camping, grilling out, hanging out with friends and family and being a Grandpa to his six month old grandson. Family remembers Yimmy as a great dad and brother; a good hearted, caring man that would “do anything for anybody”, “looked out for the underdog”; and never turned away a hungry soul that showed up while he was grilling at the campground. His greatest pride and joy is his grandson Jaxson.
