W. Timothy Simms, an Illinois Licensed Funeral Director, has been providing his services to the greater Rockford area for more than four decades. An attendee of Parsons College and a graduate of Worsham College of Mortuary Science in Chicago, Tim Simms first became aligned with Sundberg Funeral Home in 1966. Within a few short years, Tim found himself immersed in the world of politics, choosing to accept dual responsibilities as both a funeral director and an elected public official. Thanks to his success as not only a public official but an associate of such a well known establishment as Sundberg Funeral Home, Tim took on another new endeavor in 1980, becoming the owner of Wilbur Christenson Funeral Home in Rockford, his main source of pride until his retirement in 2000. In recent years, Tim has served on the Winnebago County Board, but during his forty years of public office, Tim distinguished himself as a member of the Illinois House of Representatives and Illinois State Senate, even being elected President of the Illinois Funeral Directors Association. Appointed by Gov. James Thompson to serve as Chairman of the Funeral Directors and Embalmers Licensing Board for the State of Illinois. Tim was also reappointed by Gov. Jim Edgar to continue this post. Tim’s faithful service to the Rockford community, assisting families for forty-four years in funeral service and government, continues on today as we happily welcome him to our staff once again at Sundberg Funeral Home, Ltd.
