Tim was born March 3, 1950, to the late Glenn and Annabelle Tott in Sibley, Iowa. After graduating from Sibley High School, Tim attended Mankato State College in Minnesota. Rather than driving south to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a professional golfer, Tim drove north and built himself a home on Kodiak Island, Alaska. There he met and married Janet Clampitt from California, and together they had a son, Luke Anthony Tott.
As captain of his crab-fishing boat, the Jody Ann, Tim and his crew spent more than 20 years fishing in the Bering Sea.
Years later, Tim moved to Warwick, Georgia, on Lake Blackshear to be near his brother and best friend Carl. Tim was an avid golfer and fisherman, known for his gardening and woodworking skills, and could always be seen with his dog at his side.
Tim is survived by his son Luke Tott (Naly) of Nashville, Tennessee, who was at his bedside until his death; three siblings, Carl Tott (Judy) of Americus, Georgia, Jeff Tott (Brandy) of Sewickley Pennsylvania, and Liz Tott (Dianne) of Minneapolis, Minnesota; and several nieces and nephews.
Tim will be cremated and his ashes scattered in the Bering Sea.
