Tim was born on October 13, 1998 in Burlington, IA. He was a senior at Mt. Pleasant Community High School. He loved the outdoors, fishing, mowing grass with Dad, helping Dad work on cars, flying kites, tools, Camp Courageous, painting, helping cook (especially Thanksgiving Dinner). He enjoyed testing the Christmas lights, helping decorate the tree, and making cookies with his sister Amor. A delight for him was vacuuming, taking long walks in his power chair, riding a four-wheeler, driving a golf cart, and last but not least he loved music, chair dancing, karaoke, and his iPad. Tim also played piano, guitar, and enjoyed singing Christmas songs. He was also a student of Tae Kwon Do, ages 10-12.
Timothy is survived by his parents, Lorenzo and Candy Ortiz; siblings, Ricardo, Joshua (Chandler), Jessica, Joana (Marvin), Joseph, and Amor; three nieces; 3 nephews; and numerous aunts, and uncles on both sides of his parents.
Preceding Timothy in death are both his maternal and paternal grandparents and his brother Calvin.
