Obituary for Timothy (Timm) Jon Fahrbach

October 31, 1948 - September 13, 2019
San Antonio, Texas | Age 70


Timothy (Timm) Jon Fahrbach, age 70, passed away on Friday, September 13, 2019. He was born on October 31, 1948 in Hutchinson, Kansas to Dean and Loris Fahrbach. Timm first grew up in Sylvia KS and then moved to Haven KS in 1955. He enjoyed every minute of his childhood. He attended Haven High School and participated in debate at a state level. After graduating high school, he attended Emporia State Teachers College (aka Emporia State University) where he obtained his Bachelor's Degree and then earned a Master's Degree from Wichita State University.

Timm continued his passion for debate competing at a national level while he attended Emporia State Teachers College. He was also accepted into Phi Delta Theta (earlier known as Beta Sigma Tau). He pledged as a fraternity brother and just recently (June 2019) attended their 50-year fraternity reunion, where Timm received his 50-year pin. He was very proud of his fraternity and the many people and friends he met through the fraternity over the years.

Early in his career Timm became an accomplished debate coach and teacher at Garden City High School leading his debate team to a Kansas state debate championship. In the early 70's, Timm left Garden City to take a teaching job at Hutchinson High School. In the late 70's Timm transitioned careers and began working as a travel agent for First National Travel. In the 80's Timm moved to San Antonio TX, where he continued in that career working as a leisure travel agent for many years and then moving into government travel where he negotiated arrangements for government contracted business.

Timm loved to travel and would take every opportunity to experience a different culture or new destination. While he got to see much of the world, he always said how he loved his home state of Kansas and his adopted state of Texas most of all. Other passions and loves of Timm were coffee, drum corps, Italian food, his love of cats, and he so loved going to sporting events. He would jump at the chance to attend a high school football or basketball game, or a pro sporting event, but his passion was college sports. He attended many college football's games, bowl games, college basketball, NCAA basketball regionals, and Final Fours. Timm was an avid Kansas Jayhawks fan and will continue to cheer for them in Heaven.

He was preceded in death by his mother Loris Fahrbach. Timm is survived by his father Dean Fahrbach, brother Michael Fahrbach (and wife Cheri), his partner in life Steve DeLaHaya, his niece Julia Fahrbach, his nephews Thomas Fahrbach (and wife Marissa), William Fahrbach, and Joseph Fahrbach (and wife Lori), as well as a number of extended family members, a host of adopted family and friends in Texas and across the country, and his beloved cats Paris and Max.

He will be remembered as a great son, a wonderful brother, a loving partner, an ultra-cool uncle, but most of all a caring, compassionate, kind human being.

Timm brought joy to so many people who knew him or even met him in passing. He was caring, loving, and respectful of others. His laughter and humor were infectious. Timm embodied kindness in his everyday life. He will be loved and missed forever by all who knew him.
