Obituary for Timothy R. Bueb

Timothy Richard Bueb, age 64, passed away peacefully, with his wife at his side, Friday, April 27, 2018 at Taylor House.  

Tim was born April 18, 1954 in Storm Lake, IA to John and Liselotte (Burkhardt) Bueb. He was the 4th of 7 children born to this family.  As a child, Tim enjoyed spending time running around with his older brothers Johnny and Joe.  He especially enjoyed catching and raising pigeons with brother Johnny. When Tim was 14, the family endured a tremendous tragedy when Johnny was killed in a car accident.  As an attempt to honor his brother's memory, Tim's interest in pigeons flourished and so began a lifelong love of raising and showing them.  Throughout his life Tim raised many, many pigeons, most of which he hand fed as babies. Pomeranian Pouters were his favorite. He very much enjoyed showing his pigeons, especially at the Des Moines Bird Show that was held every year.  He took so much pride in his hobby and became very well respected in the pigeon community.
Tim's other love was his family. At age 18, on December 2, 1972, he married Catherine J. Main at St. Mary's Church in Storm Lake, IA.  Tim and Cathy began their family soon after (9 months, to be exact!) with the birth of their first daughter Kelly Jo (nicknamed Squirt) born on Sept. 23, 1973.  In 1976, the family moved to Des Moines where they have remained.  In 1979, their second child was born on Sept. 14.  John Roger (nicknamed Sam) was named as a tribute to Tim's late brother Johnny.  In 1981, their third and final child, Elizabeth Marie (nicknamed Biffy) was born on August 12.  
Tim worked as a machinist at Delevan for 27 1/2 years.  
Later in life, Tim took pride as becoming Papa to his three grandsons Nicholas, Jaxon and Carter.  He enjoyed traveling with his family, especially to Hawaii and Colorado.  He also enjoyed family gatherings during the summer which included BBQs and swimming in their pool.  
Tim is survived by his wife of 45 years, Cathy Jo.  His children Kelly (Dave), John (Stacy) and Elizabeth (Vinny). His three grandsons Nicholas, Jaxon, and Carter.  Sisters Mary (Sid) Akiona, Debby (Rick) Miller, Cindy (Jim) Ham, and Karen (Bruce) King. Brother Joe (Naomi).  Several nieces and nephews.
He was greeted in Heaven by his mother, father and brother.
Family and friends are invited to visitation at Caldwell Funeral home from 4-7pm on Monday, April 30, 2018.  A Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, May 1. 2018, at St. Theresa's Catholic Church beginning at 10:30am.  A luncheon will be held after the service in the church hall.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
