Tim Beets was a much loved son, husband, father and friend. Tim lived life with gusto. We will remember him as a surfer, a paratrooper, a race car driver, a cowboy, a hunter, a fisherman, a golfer and a sailor. Tim was a good neighbor, always ready to lend a helping hand. He loved the wilderness and believed that all living things deserved freedom. He earned the Bronze Star while serving as a Green Beret in the 101st Airborne during the Vietnam War. Tim will be remembered by his mother, Doris Beets, his wife, Judi Beets, his daughters, Shannon Beets, Dennise Matty, Michelle Williamson, Karen King and Wendi Terry, and his brother, Don Beets. Everyone that knew Tim is grateful for the memories we have and the imprint he made on our lives.
