Timothy Robert Fahey was born on September 23, 1976, to Robert and Susan (Pogge) Fahey in Brookings, South Dakota.  While growing up Tim and his family lived in many cities in South Dakota. While living in Pierre, Tim developed his love of racing RC cars, wrestling, fishing, and the outdoors.    

Tim’s abilities at racing RC cars led to traveling the nation and winning many competitions. He competed from Montana to New Jersey and several states throughout the Midwest.

In 1988, Tim and his family moved to Brandon, SD. Tim got involved in AAU wrestling at a very young age. His hard work paid off, allowing him to make the Brandon Valley High School Varsity Team while in the eighth grade.

Later he was employed by All Seasons Inc., Harrisburg, SD.

Tim’s love for fishing and hunting also started at a very young age. He continued as an avid hunter and fisherman throughout his life. He had a passion for elk hunting in the Black Hills of South Dakota. 

In 2006, Tim married Kristen Schumann. Their 13 years of marriage lead to the greatest joy of their lives their son. Everett was born in 2013. Tim shared his love for the outdoors with his son. The outdoors was Tim’s chapel. The outdoors is where he went to find peace, solace, and strength. He realized all of nature’s beauty came from the Lord.  Tim’s deep knowledge and love for nature are reflected in Everett. They enjoyed their time fishing and hunting together. Don’t challenge Everett to a “Creek Chub” catching contest. His Daddy taught him well.
