Timothy Michael ĎTimí Kasmarick

Feb. 22, 1981 - Oct. 1, 2011

Timothy Michael "Tim" Kasmarick of Waukesha entered eternal life Saturday, Oct. 1, 2011, at the age of 30. Tim was born Feb. 22, 1981, a son of Dennis and the late Patricia Kasmarick (nee Arndt).

A 2000 graduate of Waukesha North High School, Tim went on to earn a degree in criminal justice from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2007. He worked in the field following graduation, but his dream was to pursue a degree in counseling so that he could help others. Timís greatest contribution was in his actions and interactions with people. His generosity and ability to lift the spirits of others were among his greatest gifts. Tim is and will always be remembered for his contagious smile, great sense of humor and his enduring commitment to family and friends.

Tim will be deeply missed by his father, Dennis (Marianne) Kasmarick of Waukesha; his brother, Jason (Alix) Kasmarick of Brookfield; stepbrother, Nikolaus Aldrich of Milwaukee; grandfather, Robert Kasmarick of Oregon; grandmother, Lena Arndt of Waukesha; and nephew, Rocco Kasmarick. Tim is further survived by countless other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Patricia; grandfather, Clarence "Bud" Arndt; and grandmother, Helen Kasmarick.
