October 10, 2021

Timothy D. “Tim” Newdiger, 50, went home to his Lord and Savior on Sunday, October 10, 2021. He was born August 20, 1971, in Joplin, Missouri to Farol (Gunlock) Newdiger, and to the late Donald Lawrence Newdiger.

Tim was a graduate of Neosho High School, Class of 1989. He later graduated from Crowder College in Neosho in 1991. During this time, he was a member of the Baptist Student Union and had traveled to Russia on mission trips. Tim also attended Southwest Missouri State University to study Agronomy. On September 6, 1993, Tim married Brenda Bond in Neosho at Fellowship Baptist Church. Tim worked most his life in agriculture and the dairy industry. In June of 2004, Tim and Brenda moved to Wisconsin (because God had a sense of humor and Brenda prayed for trees). Tim was a gentle giant with a booming voice and a spirit of adventure who was supportive, caring, wise, a good storyteller, and always had a “great” idea. He loved spending time with his family and going to their performances and sporting events. Tim loved cooking, listening to southern Gospel music, four-wheeling, and being involved in men’s ministries when he could.

Tim is survived by his wife, Brenda; his children, Daniel (Sarah) Newdiger, Eli Newdiger, Jonathan Newdiger, Brenna Newdiger, and Maya Newdiger; a granddaughter, Melanie; his mother, Farol Newdiger; a sister, Ticia (Gary) McDonald; a sister-in-law, Beth (Justin) Jones; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Dale and Mary Bond; his nieces and nephews, Aaron McDonald, Cameron Jones, Chloe Jones, and Cooper Jones; and many relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father.
