Obituary for Timothy "Tim" E. Wetzel

Timothy “Tim” E. Wetzel, 52, of Cairo, NE passed away Wednesday, October 2, 2019 at home.

Services will be 10:30 AM Monday, October 7, 2019 at The Cairo Community Center in Cairo, NE with Pastor Darrel Holzinger officiating.

Tim was born May 29, 1967 to Vernon and Terry (Gravel) Wetzel at Grand Island, NE. He grew up in Stromsburg, NE and attended Stromsburg High School graduating in 1985. After high school he enjoyed working in agriculture including Hudson Farms, Cottonwood Ranch, and Mamot Feedlots. He enjoyed working with cattle and crops. Harvest was his favorite time of year. He spent the last 12 years of his career self employed.

He was united in marriage to Sadie Sellmeyer in 1993 at Palmer, NE. Together they raised four children, Makayla, Cody, Brady, and Lindsay. The family expanded adding a son in law, Will, and two granddaughters, Lilly and Sage.

Tim enjoyed being the life of the party wherever he went, joking, singing (usually making up his own lyrics), and tearing up the dance floor. He loved to hunt, camp, four wheel, jeep, and recently adding canoeing to his list of outdoor activities. Tim was so confident in his meat smoking abilities and in his chili recipe that he could lose a competition and still claim his was better. At the end of the day his family was his number one priority.

He is survived by his wife, Sadie; four children, Makayla and Will Smith, of Broken Bow, NE, Cody Wetzel, of Cairo, NE, Brady Wetzel, of Boelus, NE, Lindsay Wetzel and Fredy Ramirez, of Cairo, NE; grandchildren, Lilly, Sage; parents, Vernon and Terry Wetzel, of Dannebrog, NE; siblings, Dave Wetzel, of Dannebrog, NE, Tammy (Daron) Mamot, of St. Libory, NE, Craig (Deon) Wetzel, of Palmer, NE, Mike Wetzel, of Dannebrog, NE, and special friend, Dianne Danhauer, of Dannebrog, NE; and many other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Roger and Elsie Gravel, Jake and Evelyn Wetzel; and mother in law, Kathleen Sellmeyer.

In lieu of flowers the family is suggesting donations to Cairo Quick Response Team. Online condolences may be directed to Livingston-Sondermann Funeral Home is entrusted with arrangements.
