Timothy Lee Symes, age 70 of River Falls, WI passed away on May 12, 2016 in St. Paul, MN. Born July 19, 1945 in Kent, WA. Attended Baldwin-Woodville Area High School [Class of 1965]. Preceded in death by his father James Symes and mother Anne Symes. Survived by his children Kellie Murray [Mike Murray], Bryan Symes [Kristin Symes] and Kristin Vozzo [Mike Vozzo], grandchildren Brooke Murray, Elle Symes and Carter Symes, and his siblings Jeffrey Symes and Victoria Symes. Tim was particularly passionate about his family, his classic cars, and conducting first-hand research for the next great Wisconsin foodie “off the beaten path” travelogue. Tim will be remembered for many reasons—but mostly for his devotion to his family and friends, his quirky sense of humor, his love for God, and his penchant for music and artifacts from yesteryear [Glenn Miller Orchestra, antique clocks and radios, fuzzy dice, Jimmy Stewart]. His family loves him and will miss him dearly. A Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 at 11:00AM at the First Baptist Church in River Falls, Wisconsin. Visitation will also be Tuesday from 10-11 AM at the church. Interment will be in Greenwood Cemetery. Arrangements are with Bakken-Young Funeral & Cremation Services of River Falls.
