In 2005, he married his soulmate, Krystal , whom he started dating when he was 15. She survives him. Also surviving are his beloved daughters Molly and Jenna, who were his life, Parents Ronnie and Gail Scogin, sister Chrissy (Chris) Allen, brothers Jeremey (Christina), and Andrew (Alexis), one niece, several nieces and nephews, grandparents Jerry and Marilyn Scogin, and many aunts, uncles, cousins. Tim was a son and brother to his in-laws. He is also survived by Rick and Mary Kentzler, Melissa and Trent Schaffer, and Andrea Gutierrez Miller and Justin Miller.
Tim was a brick mason in the family-owned business R.S. Masonry, leaving behind a magnificent memento of his talent with his work on the Children's Discovery Museum in Normal. He, his brother Jeremey, and his father laid the exterior brick at the museum, with Tim completing the Greek key pattern at the top. If you have never looked at that pattern, stop and take a look. It is amazing. The three of them also laid the brick work on the Soy Capital Bank in Bloomington.
Tim also worked at Merry Ann's Diner in Normal, where customer's loved him and went there specifically to see him. Tim's family very much appreciated that Merry Ann's worked with him to take time off last year to take his family to Boston for Molly's major surgery and her five week hospital stay. It has made a tremendous difference to Molly's life.
Tim's mind was never still. It was always churning, creating, and inventing things. He could build, repair, and remodel anything. He loved playing Frisbee golf.
Tim will be remembered for his honesty, hard work, his great smile, his baritone laugh, and those very beautiful, blue eyes. He was the perfect husband for Krystal, the best father for Molly and Jenna, a great son, brother, grandson, cousin, friend, co-worker, that anyone could ask for. It was a shocking and sad day to hear Tim passed away. He will truly be missed by everyone that knew him.
