Louis Lendholt Timm "OPA"

Louis passed away peacefully on March 8, 2023 of natural causes at the age of 90.  He was born in Astoria, Queens, New York to Karl W. Timm and Helene A. Otten.  At the age of eighteen, he moved with his family in 1950 from Livingston, New Jersey to Salt Lake City, Utah.

Louis met the love of his life, Betty Evelyn Green, on a blind date.  On May 6, 1953 they were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple for time and all eternity.  Just days later he was sent overseas to Germany where he served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War.

Upon returning, he began working alongside his father in the machining business.  He was President of United Precision Machine and Engineering Company, an Aerospace machine shop.  Through his hard work, the shop earned the “Small Business Subcontractor of the Year” award in 1983.

“Opa”, as he was affectionately called, was loved by his family and was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather.  He was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints throughout his life and served in many callings.  His testimony of the Savior, Jesus Christ and knowledge of the scriptures will forever be a legacy to his posterity.  We are so grateful for his life-long example and enduring well to the end.

Preceded in death by his wife Betty, sister Grace Williams (Elwood), brother Carl Timm(Jeanie).

Survived by daughter, Debby (Tim - deceased) Moore, twin sons Steven (Amy) Timm, Stuart (Lisa) Timm, 11 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.

The family would like to express thanks to all the care givers who provided loving service to Louis over the last two and a half years.

 A viewing will be held on Sunday, March 12, 2023 at Cannon Mortuary, 2460 E. Bengal Blvd. (7600 So.) Cottonwood Heights, Utah from 6:00-8:00 pm.  A private family service and interment at Memorial Mountain View Cemetery will take place the following day.
