Timothy Ver Steeg

January 11, 1970 — October 18, 2019

TIMOTHY VER STEEG was born on January 11, 1970 to Evan and Twila (Drost) VerSteeg in Luverne, Minnesota. He was raised on the family farm west of town and attended the Luverne public schools, graduating high school in 1988. He furthered his education at University of Minnesota in Waseca, Minnesota, and then South Dakota State University in Brookings, South Dakota. Following his education, Tim went to work farming for a period of time. He then became a long distance truck driver which later led to an opportunity to be a civilian truck driver for the United States government in Iraq and later Afghanistan. During his time overseas, Tim attended a wedding with a friend in Thailand. Here he met a girl by the name of Suntaree “Na” Seevinai. The two fell in love and on October 5, 2011 they married in Bangkok, Thailand. They made their home in Chonburi, Thailand and were blessed with a son, Ty. In July of 2013, the family moved to the United States and made their home in Brandon, South Dakota. Here Tim continued driving truck for local companies, most recently Mike Cotton Trucking. In September 2019, Tim experienced stomach pains, which led to a diagnosis of necrotic pancreatitis. On Friday, October 18, 2019, Tim died at the University of Minnesota Medical Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, surrounded by his family at the age of 49 years, nine months and seven days.

Tim attended Celebrate Community Church in Brandon, South Dakota. He enjoyed watching movies, eating food and firearms. He was a simple, hardworking man who enjoyed spending time with his wife and son.

Tim’s spirit will continue to live with his wife, Na and son, Ty of Brandon; mother, Twila VerSteeg of Luverne; two siblings, Tom (Alison) VerSteeg of Luverne and Tami (Brian) Bergman of Luverne; and numerous other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his father, Evan in 2016.
