Tim was born July 7, 1955, at St. Luke's Hospital, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to Howard and Mary Hauskins. He worked at U.S. Cellular and Farmers State Bank, along with his pride and joy work as a maintenance man at Kid's Kampus Learning Center, before becoming a stay-at-home dad and personal chauffeur to all the children's many appointments and events. Tim was a part of his family's Southern gospel trio, the Hauskins' Singers, in 1975. He really enjoyed sharing his love of Southern gospel music, including his time being a DJ on Christian radio. His most treasured moments were spending time with his wife and children. Pops always had a twinkle in his eyes while holding and talking to Izzy and Leo. He had a special place in his heart for babies, and his dog, Tucker, helped fill his baby void, lying in bed with him during his healing process. Most importantly, Tim loved and served his Lord Jesus Christ, and lived in a way that led his family to do the same.
Memorial donations will go to the Hauskins Family College Fund.
