Timothy Joseph Mulvihill

December 10, 1965 - February 3, 2019

Timothy Joseph Mulvihill, age 53, of New Prague, died peacefully, surrounded by his family on Sunday, February 3, 2019 at his home.  Tim was born on December 10, 1965 in Rochester, MN to John Edward and Colleen (Loftus) Mulvihill.  He spent his early years in Fountain, MN until moving to Norfolk, Nebraska in junior high.  He graduated from Norfolk High School, where he played football and continued his football career with Rochester Community College after moving back to Minnesota. Tim married the love of his life, Michelle  Bany at the chapel at Yellowstone National Park on July 10, 1998.  They lived in Rochester for their early years, until moving to Dover,  MN once the children entered school.  Tim worked as the general manager for Noble RV and when a new dealership was opened up, in 2013, he and his family moved to New Prague.  Tim’s passion for football took off in a new way once he made that move; he became the voice on KCHK radio announcing Trojan football games and continued until his own son played high school football and Tim decided he needed to be a vocal participant in those games.  Tim’s number one passion in life was coaching and cheering on his kids in their sporting events. He also enjoyed spending quality time with his nieces & nephews, and friends, old and new.

Tim is survived by his loving wife, Michelle and children, Keegan, Karson, & Kaidyn all of New Prague; mother, Colleen Loftus of Fountain; siblings, Dennis (Dani) Mulvihill of Cottage Grove, Mitch Mulvihill of Fountain, Jenny (Glenn) Simes of Lanesboro; mother-in-law, Claryce Bany of Eyota; many cherished nieces & nephews and inlaws. He is preceded in death by his father, John Mulvihill.


A Celebration of Life Service will be held Saturday, February 9, 2019 at 11:00 AM at St. Wenceslaus Church in New Prague with Reverend Dr. Steve Trewartha of FaithPoint Lutheran Church officiating.  Visitation will take place at Bruzek Funeral Home on Friday from 4-8 PM and Saturday morning from 9:30 – 10:30.  Lunch will follow at Ridges at Sand Creek Golf Course.  A memorial fund is being set up at Roundbank in New Prague for his children.

Tim, was such a great person. I admired him, I always felt welcomed as a a customer. I will miss him deeply. I know he cared a lot about his family, friends, and work associates. He was a man of great integrity. He was always someone you could talk to like your own family. A special person. My heart goes out to everyone he touched as I am sure they too will miss Tim as I do.

My deepest condolences to all of Tim’s family. I’ll never forget Tim and how quick his sense of humor and smile came to him. And to his friends when he made us all laugh. From our years in school and later in life as well

Michelle, Keegan, Karson and Kaidyn,

I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of Tim. My heart deeply goes out to you. I will never forget what a great coach he was and how much his heart was into helping every kid he could to be a better athlete. How committed he was to his kids, and the love you could just see that he had for you Michelle.

This little town of Dover will forever cherish the memories we have of Tim and your family.

May peace be with you all during this tough time.
