John Timothy Sussex
Tim spent most of his life on horseback working cattle. While attending high school and Casper College, he discovered a love of leather work, making belts and a saddle among other leather projects. When younger, Tim broke horses. Many winter seasons found Tim feeding his cattle by wagon and draft horses that he had trained. Tim and his wife, Sharon, participated in a few wagon trains, traveling around southeast Wyoming. To support his family and the cattle ranching, Tim started a welding business as a hobby and has found that it has become a full-time occupation. Tim and Sharon now live on their own place on Bear Creek and lease a couple of neighboring ranches where they run cattle and a few horses. Tim and Sharon are the parents of two daughters, Dawn and Danielle and have four grandchildren, who reside in Colorado.
