Tim G. Neuner, age 61, of Rich Fountain, passed away Saturday, October 1, 2022, at his home with his loving family holding him tight. His home… the place he loved the most and was so proud of. He went peacefully and without a fuss, just the way he would have wanted. We most certainly wish it had not happened so soon or so suddenly, but God’s work is mysterious.
Tim was born August 30, 1961, in Jefferson City, a son to the late and great George and Mary Jane (Bax) Neuner. He modeled his life in their honor, following in their footsteps with faith and family coming first always.
On July 26, 1980, he was united in marriage to his forever love, Cynthia Mengwasser, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Rich Fountain. His love for her was never ending; she was his light, his calm, his everything. Cindy survives at their home.
Tim enjoyed everything he did. He made it a point to. He was a teacher, not by trade but by choice. If you were around him for long, you were going to learn something. He taught his children and his grandchildren by example, the right way, with love, guidance, and a bit of discipline. He would really light up when fishing, squirrel hunting, deer hunting, and throwing any ball around in the front yard with his grandkids. He was the biggest fan for his grandkids at any of their sporting events, making it to every game he could. Family was so important to Tim - he lived for them - but his friends were always there, too. His countless friends were entertaining to say the least, and they passed their time shooting the breeze, solving the world’s problems, playing music, cutting wood, and making ponus, jerky, and relish.
He was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, where he was one of the founding members of the Sacred Heart Endowment Fund. He was also a member of the Gasconade Bottom Boys Band and the Rich Fountain Knights of Columbus Council #10690.
Tim was a 1975 graduate of Sacred Heart School in Rich Fountain and a 1979 graduate of Fatima High School in Westphalia.
Tim worked tirelessly for his family his whole life. During his career, he was employed with Missouri Builders, John Gelhert Construction, State Technical College, and has been serving as Osage County Treasurer since January 2007.
In addition to his spouse of 42 years, Tim is survived by two daughters, Jessie Stuckenschneider and her husband Travis of Westphalia and Katie Neuner and her husband Peter Troesser of Rich Fountain; one son, Alexander Neuner and his wife Katie Rae of Rich Fountain; nine beloved grandchildren, Hank, Trent, and Mack Stuckenschneider, Vincent, Marta, Cleo, and Zeke Troesser, and Oz and Vivian Neuner; three brothers, Michael Neuner and his wife Ruth, John Neuner and his wife Joan, and Patrick Neuner and his wife Joyce, all of Rich Fountain; four sisters, Jennie Egan and her husband Tom of Kansas City, Joanie Schwartze of Rich Fountain, Teresa Winfield and her husband Ivan of Houston, Texas, and Maria Peters and her husband Dale of Loose Creek; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.
In addition to his parents, Tim was preceded in death by his granddaughter, Elizabeth Jane Stuckenschneider; infant twin sisters; a sister-in-law, Jeanne Neuner; and a brother-in-law, Don Schwartze.
