Milledgeville - Timothy W. "Rottweiler", Litwiller 46, of Milledgeville died Saturday, February 01, 2014 of injuries sustained in a snowmobile accident.

Tim was born January 17, 1968 in Sterling, IL, the son of Lester Litwiller and Donna Reed. He attended Milledgeville High School where he graduated in 1986. He married Susan VanKampen on November 4, 1995. They were blessed with two amazing children Troy, 16 and Megan, 13.

Tim was a devoted, loving father and husband. He was his children's biggest supporter and loved spending time with them. He worked very hard to build and manage his own business and home. He was a lover of the outdoors, spending much of his time boating, fishing, and snowmobiling. There is nothing more he loved doing than vacationing in Wisconsin with his family. His friends were a huge part of his life, and everyone loved his fun-loving, witty personality.
Tim was the owner of Industrial Coatings in Rock Falls, IL. He was a member of the Milledgeville Mens Club and Elkhorn Creek Runners snowmobile club.
