Tim was born Nov. 10, 1955, to George and Patricia (Hayes) Schaar in Watertown, MN.

He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle and friend to many.

He enjoyed wood working, spending time with his many animals, especially his German shepherds. Riding his motorcycle year-round was something he didn’t just say he did – he did.

Tim was a storyteller, and loved to spin a story to rapt attention. He was known to light up a room when he entered.

Another facet of Tim was that he was an accomplished martial artist.

All of these interests went to the back of the line with the arrival of his grandchildren. Spending time with the grandchildren even trumped riding his beloved motorcycle.

Tim was united in marriage to Christine Lyrek April 29, 1989, at the Church of St. Mary in Waverly, MN.

Tim was preceded in death by his daughter Angela Schaar; as well as his grandparents and many other family members.

He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Christine; children Travis Schaar, Sarah Schaar, Hannah Schaar; four grandchildren Zander, Liam, Myla, and a granddaughter arriving shortly; parents George and Patricia Schaar; siblings Steve (Michelle) Schaar, Sue (John) Hamel, Rita Decker (Bob Brown), Vanessa (Matt) Zimmerman; as well as many nieces, nephew, cousins, and friends.
