Timothy Henry VanDeBerghe, Sr. (aka Tim) loving husband, father and grandfather passed away at the age of 69 on October 7th, 2019 in Shawnee, KS. Tim was born on July 16th, 1950 in Kansas City, KS to Henry and Paula VanDeBerghe. Tim spent his career as a Union Journeyman Bricklayer and was a proud member of BAC Local 15. Tim was known throughout the Mid-West as the fastest and most precise bricklayer and his work can be seen all over Kansas City. Some of his most prideful accomplishments included: Sporting KC Stadium, KCPD South Patrol, and the Mid America Heart Institute. Tim's passion was his family. He loved nothing more than spending time with his loving wife of 48 years, his children and his grandchildren. He was an avid Chiefs fan and loved his little excursions with his Wife. Three words that can describe him perfectly are honorable, devoted, and proud. He was known for his quick wit, infectious smile, his bellowing laugh, and his Tisdom. Tim was preceded in death by his Grandmother Lois, Father Henry, Mother Paula, and his younger brother Ricky. He is survived by his wife Pam, his four children, Aimee Romine and her husband (Tony Romine), Son Timothy VanDeBerghe Jr, Daughter Kelly VanDeBerghe, Son Daniel VanDeBerghe and his wife (Brandy VanDeBerghe). Additional survivors are his brother Kenneth Kohrs, and his six Grandchildren, Kaylee Romine, Maximus Romine, Timothy VanDeBerghe III, Bree VanDeBerghe, Daniel VanDeBerghe II and his sweet Bella Rose VanDeBerghe. There are numerous others including, Nieces, Nephews, Brothers and Sisters in law that he loved dearly.

In lieu of flowers the family request that donations be made to the American Lung Cancer association.
