Tim Atnip


Tim Atnip, 68, of Jasper, Missouri, passed away Monday, January 10, 2022, at his home with his wife and boys by his side. Tim was born on January 27, 1953, to Austin Atnip and Bettie (Shafer) Atnip in Carthage, Missouri. He attended Oronogo Schools until the 6th grade when he moved to Jasper, Missouri. There he met his life long love, Janet, who both graduated with the Class of 1971. He was a lifelong farmer who really enjoyed farming with his family. Tim, along side his wife Janet and boys, owned and operated Atnip Enterprises; the family business. He was a 27 year board member of the Jasper R-5 School District. Tim also served on the ASCS Board, as well as the Farm Bureau Board. Through the years, Tim served as a trustee for both the Carthage Church of the Nazarene and the Purcell Baptist Church. Tim had many interests, such as truck and tractor pulling and dirt track racing with Atnip Motorsports, but he loved his family, his faith, and the Lord most of all.

He was united in marriage to Janet (Tiller) Atnip on October 27, 1972, at the Carthage Church of the Nazarene; she survives.

Along with his wife, Tim is survived by his three sons Jeremy Atnip (Jaime), Brad Atnip (Sarah), and Adam Atnip (Allison); eight grandchildren Larissa (Logan), Hadley, Garrett, Addison, Emery, Clayton, and Natalie, one companion dog Ed, and numerous other family members and friends.
