Timothy Charles Staus

October 18, 1941 — March 25, 2024

Timothy Charles Staus passed away suddenly but peacefully on Monday, March 25, 2024, in Ogden, UT.   Born in Los Angeles, California, October 18, 1941, to the late Eugene Staus and Dorothy (King) Dixon. Tim was predeceased by his wife Margaret.


Tim grew up in South Pasadena, California.  He attended Don Bosco Technical Institute in Rosemead where he studied electronics. Following graduation in 1961, he enrolled in electrical engineering at Northwestern University in Chicago. Tim met Margaret in 1962 while attending a young people’s group at church in Alhambra and they married in March of 1964, eventually settling in South Pasadena with their children, on La France Avenue, the same street Tim grew up on.


Tim and Margaret were faithful members of the Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena and shared their Christian faith with family and close friends.  Tim began his career early on when he was hired by North American Rockwell during his junior year of high school to repair and calibrate test equipment for the aerospace industry.  It was during this time Tim was asked to create his own testing and repair business and Staus Engineering was created.  Tim was most proud of his company and supporting several aerospace companies in the southern California area. His largest service contract was working on custom ground support equipment in support of NASA’s Space Shuttle program.   In 1997 a decision was made to close the business and Tim went on to work at DTR Business Systems and later was a Senior Account Executive at Aberdeen where he retired from in 2017.


Tim is survived by his four children Matthew (Michelle) of Layton, UT, with whom he lived with following his move from his home in California in October of 2023, Victoria Kiah of San Diego, CA, Rebecca (Michael) Simpson of Aliso Viejo, CA and Jonathan (Cara) of Kensington, CT; his ten grandchildren, Whitney (Eric) Roberts, Taylor, Zachary and Jordan and Brandon Staus, Haley (Kyle) Martell, Derek and April Simpson, Thomas Kiah and Aiden Staus, his three great-grandchildren, Brody and Brooklyn Roberts and Kylee Martell, his newest great-granddaughter he was blessed to meet while celebrating Thanksgiving in Utah.   Tim is survived by his sister Pamela (Phil) Penner of Ames, IA, his sister-in-law Susan Culp and several nieces and nephews.   In addition to his parents and wife Margaret, Tim was predeceased by his brother Terry, brother-in-law Gordon Culp and son-in-law Gregory Kiah.  


Services are pending at this time.


A Private Family interment will take place at a later date in California.
