Haselhuhn, Timothy Herbert, of Coopersville, MI enjoyed his last sunrise on Saturday, July 25, 2015. Tim’s passing was sudden and unexpected in his Coopersville home. Tim is survived by his loving partner of 12 years, Susan Schmidt and her children Katie and Ben Schmidt, brother, Arnie Haselhuhn and his wife Sharon of Oscoda, MI; sister, Bev Merchant of Birch Run, MI; sisters-in-law Betty Haselhuhn and Bernice Haselhuhn and many special nieces and nephews. Tim was preceded in death by his parents Herbert and Hazel (Smith) Haselhuhn of Rogers City, MI. Tim was born on April 30, 1955, He led an adventurous, artistic life filled with many passions and many successful roles. A graduate of Liberty University Christian College in Lynchburg, VA in the area of broadcasting, Tim was actually known to many as radio personality “Tim Cramer” for a popular Christian show in Appleton, MN. He also kept an eye from the sky during a stint providing real time traffic reporting via helicopter. Some of the biggest, boyish smiles could be seen on Tim’s face while reminiscing of his years as a jet ski and snowmobile test driver (stunt man would probably be more apt if one let him rewind to his tales of ice being so thin he’d jump snowmobiles from piece-to-piece on somewhat open water). In listening to stories from these years and his days enjoying his own Powerquest boat, he most certainly had 9 lives. Refined and artistically gifted, he found his later and final career in the crafting of wood as owner/operator of Hazzo Custom Cabinets and Furniture. A remarkable draftsman at the table and equally adept on the floor, the residential/commercial creations he leaves behind are works of art, not just functional pieces. He with the help of his dear friend and fellow associate of 16 years, Pete Hockenberry, have created and installed for some of the most discerning clientele nationwide. Tim will always be remembered as an intellectual with a fabulous sense of humor and quick smile. Family, good friends, nature’s beauty (especially sunsets), varied genres of music (especially the Rusty Wright Band), Susan Schmidt and well-built motor vehicles (especially, his Audi A5 Quattro) were his passions. Funeral services will be held 12:00 noon on Thursday, July 30, 2015 at the Throop Funeral Home, 214 Church St, Coopersville, MI. Visitation will be held Wednesday, July 29, 2015 from 5-8 p.m. and Thursday, July 30, 2015 two hours prior to the funeral service. Following the funeral service a luncheon and time of continued sharing will be held at Coopersville’s North Pavilion (steps away from Throop Funeral Home). Memorial donations may be made to the Throop Funeral Home to assist the family with funeral expenses. A online guestbook may be signed at Throop Funeral Home Coopersville, 616-837-8161
