Timothy Mulvihill

Timothy Mulvihill, 53, formerly of Fountain

Timothy Joseph Mulvihill, 53, of New Prague, died peacefully on Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019, at his home, surrounded by his family.

He was born on Dec. 10, 1965, in Rochester, to John Edward and Colleen (Loftus) Mulvihill.

He spent his early years in Fountain, until moving to Norfolk, Neb., in junior high. He graduated from Norfolk High School, where he played football and continued his football career with Rochester Community College after moving back to Minnesota.

He married the love of his life, Michelle Bany, at the chapel at Yellowstone National Park on July 10, 1998.

They lived in Rochester for their early years, until moving to Dover once the children entered school. He worked as the general manager for Noble RV and when a new dealership was opened up, in 2013, he and his family moved to New Prague. His passion for football led him to become the voice on KCHK radio announcing Trojan football games. He continued until his own son played high school football and he decided he needed to be a vocal participant in those games. His number one passion in life was coaching and cheering on his kids in their sporting events. He also enjoyed spending quality time with his nieces and nephews and friends, old and new.

He is survived by his loving wife, Michelle; children, Keegan, Karson and Kaidyn of New Prague; mother, Colleen Loftus of Fountain; siblings, Dennis (Dani) Mulvihill of Cottage Grove, Mitch Mulvihill of Fountain and Jenny (Glenn) Simes of Lanesboro; mother-in-law, Claryce Bany of Eyota and many cherished nieces and nephews and in-laws.

He was preceded in death by his father, John Mulvihill.

A celebration of life service for him will be held on Saturday, Feb. 9, at 11 a.m. at St. Wenceslaus Church in New Prague with the Rev. Steve Trewartha of FaithPoint Lutheran Church officiating. Visitation will take place at Bruzek Funeral Home on Friday, Feb. 8 from 4 to 8 p.m. and Saturday morning from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Lunch will follow at Ridges at Sand Creek Golf Course.

A memorial fund is being set up at Roundbank in New Prague for his children.
