Timothy M. Benson, 52, Hill City, passed away Friday, Oct. 1, 2021 at his residence, surrounded by family.
Tim was born in 1969 in Aitkin to David and Elaine Benson. He grew up in the Hill City area, graduating from Hill City High School and Itasca Community College. Tim enlisted in the U.S. Army on Sept. 29, 1991. He was a SPC in Company D, 1st Battalion, 94th Armory. He proudly served in Desert Storm until his discharge on Oct. 2, 2006.
Tim bought his home on Hill Lake in 2014, where he married Stacie on Oct. 18, 2020.
He was preceded in death by his paternal and maternal grandparents.
Tim is survived by his wife, Stacie; children: Brittany, Breanna, and Timothy Benson Jr.; stepdaughters, Alaina and Sydnie Moren; parents; sister, Tamara Lowney; brothers, Leroy and David Benson.
Tim was a proud veteran of Desert Storm and his experiences there stayed with him for the rest of his life. He was a heckler, a teaser and brought laughter to every room. He loved to cook and feeding people was almost as much fun for him as giving them a hard time. Most of all, even through the difficult times, Tim loved his people. He brought so many love, laughter and joy. He will be dearly missed.
A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at Spang Town Hall, Hill City. Interment will be at the veteran's cemetery at Fort Ripley, Minnesota at a later date.
