Birth15 April 1957Timothy Ken Vertein was born on 15 April 1957.
Death17 September 2017He died on 17 September 2017 at age 60 Timothy Ken Vertein, 60, of Baraboo, passed away Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017, surrounded by his loving family at home.

Tim was born to Ken and LaVeta Vertein on April 15, 1957, in Reedsburg. He was the second child of four, having one older sister and two younger. In 1971, Tim graduated from St. John’s Elementary School in Baraboo, and would later see all three of his children do the same. He graduated from Baraboo High School in 1975 and later moved to New York City to pursue his dream of being a chef. He received his diploma from the Culinary Institute of America in 1981. He then traveled the country as an executive chef opening new hotel restaurants. While in Oklahoma City, a friend’s younger sister moved to be closer to her brother, then started working with Tim. This is how Tim met his wife, Maria. They were married on Oct. 30, 1987. Together, they had three beautiful children, Timothy Apolo, Erick Jonathon and Diana Michelle. Tim convinced, though some may say tricked, Maria to gradually move north to Wisconsin, finally settling down in Baraboo.

Tim loved his children, always making sure to volunteer to be a field trip chaperone and to attend all his kids’ math meets, forensic tournaments, graduations and sporting events. He also loved the work he did for the University of Wisconsin and the Memorial Union. He was particularly proud of his work with Butch’s Bologna Bash, Chili Cook-off and the Badger Bash. He was also heavily involved with the New Union and Union South buildings, and would gladly give anyone a tour to point out his influences. Tim found the perfect job to showcase his love of the Badgers. He was known for his humor in everything he did, whether when he was taking the family on cross-country road trips, going camping or playing cards. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, bowling and golfing.

Tim is survived by his loving wife Maria; children, Timothy (Rachel), Erick (Barbara), Diana (Shelly); stepdaughter Mariana Costilla; granddaughter Dana; parents Kenneth and LaVeta; and sisters, Regina (Bob) Derlein, Kerri Vertein and Annie Kolar.

A celebration of life will be held from 2-5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017, at the Waunakee Village Center, 333 S. Madison St., Waunakee.
