He had a knack for "Timisms" and lively conversations. Tim was a member of Defiance Lodge #335, Knights of Pythias.

Tim is the son of the late Daniel Godwin Genthner and he is survived by his mother Ursula Maher Genthner and his loving wife of 18 years Peggy Mershon Genthner. He is the devoted stepfather of Lynne and her husband Paul Storck, Luke and his wife Jen Diers and Larisa and her husband Paul Rottkamp. He is the proud "Boppy" of Alex, Reed, Jack, Zoe, Dylan and Owen. Tim is also survived by his brothers, Christopher (Paula) and Peter (Margit) Genthner and nieces and nephew, Betsy, Priscilla, Penn and Ingrid.
