Timothy Allen Saldana, age 62, of Blaine, Minnesota passed away on Monday, September 20, 2021. Timothy was born September 19, 1959.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Anthony and Eileen Saldana; brother, Gary; and niece, Holly.

Tim had a very big heart and lived life to the fullest. He loved Elvis, and watching sports with the family - Twins and Vikings games were his favorite. He was proud to start the Minnesota Chapter for Cure SMA and his own business, ACE Lawncare. Tim was a wonderful brother, and he will be deeply missed by all.
