Tim McKeever, age 48 of Northfield, passed away at home with his wife and family by his side, on Sunday morning, December 23, 2018, following a 2 month battle with cancer.

Timothy John McKeever was born September 7, 1970, in Golden Valley, Minnesota, to Donald II and Barbara (Anderson) McKeever. He graduated from Northfield High School in 1989 and attended South Central College in Faribault. Following his education he worked for K&G Manufacturing in Faribault as a machinist.

Tim was on the Northfield Area Fire & Rescue Department for 16 years, 9 months. He was a captain for around 8 of those years and active member of the Dive team and an EMT for the Rescue squad. He was a sleeper at the fire hall for around 5 years. Tim was very instrumental in outfitting new trucks getting them ready for service. He demanded the best from those around him and when there was a job to do he lead by example and was well respected. He loved being part of the fire department! Tim enjoyed going up north to fish, staying on the North Shore, vacations, wood working, gardening, cooking, scuba diving, remote control and die-cast cars and hanging out with his sister Cathy. Anyone who knew Tim knew he enjoyed visiting, loved to joke around, and that he had a great sense of humor.
