Norm Timmerman Obituary

Norman “Norm” Alois Timmerman, age 77, of McCook, NE passed away surrounded by his loved ones, in McCook on Monday, December 18, 2023.

Norm was born on September 24, 1946, in Omaha, NE to parents, Leo Otto and Irene Gertrude (Meister) Timmerman. He was one of seven children who grew up in Omaha, graduating from high school in 1964. Norm learned the virtue of hard work at a young age and actively contributed to his family’s operation from adolescence, often hauling cattle to the stockyards in the morning before school.

After attending the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and serving in the US Marine Corps from 1966 to 1968, Norm returned home to fulfill his lifelong ambition of feeding cattle.

On June 15th, 1968, in Omaha, Norm married the love of his life, Sharon Kathryn (Guthrie) Timmerman. The couple was blessed with three children.

Norm always had a deep passion for the cattle feeding industry. In 1971, together the brothers, Gerald, James, Norman and Ronnie, with the support of their spouses and sisters spent the next 50 plus years successfully continuing to build their family business. Timmerman & Sons Feeding Co, Inc. included a network of feedyards, ranching operations, cow-calf and stocker leases in 7 states. In 2012, NA Timmerman, Inc. was formed. It is a family operation that Norm and Sharon own jointly with their immediate family. NA Timmerman includes feedyard locations in Nebraska, Colorado, and Kansas, as well as multiple grass leases and backgrounding partners. Norm loved the cattle business and the people in it; many business partners became great friends. Norm was extremely honored to be inducted into the Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame in 2022.

Norm’s passion for the cattle industry was only matched by his passion for his family, his faith, the communities he lived in, and charitable causes. Norm shared his passions and love of life with everyone he met. Norm would tell you “...hard work will give you a lot of luck.”

Norm was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Jerome; and brother-in-law, John Red McManus.

Those left to celebrate his life include his wife, Sharon Timmerman of McCook; children, Jason (Wendy) Timmerman of Indianola, NE, Kristin (Jeff) Stagemeyer of McCook, and Ryan (Nicole) Timmerman of Sterling, CO and brothers, Gerald (Lynn) Timmerman of Springfield, NE, James (Margie) Timmerman of Omaha, NE, Ron (Jaye) Timmerman of Castle Rock, CO, and sisters, Mary Jean McManus and Barbara (Robert) Redmond, all of Omaha; eight grandchildren Peyton (Katie) Stagemeyer, Holland Stagemeyer, Presley, Katherine, Charli, Leo, Levi and Adley Timmerman, with one on the way; and a host of extended family members and lifelong friends.
