He was the beloved husband and best friend of Julie Kirchhoff Bauernschmidt, to whom he was married for 23 wonderful years. He was the loving father of Kirsten Bauernschmidt.
Tim is also survived by his mother, Katherine (Kay) Desmond Bauernschmidt; his brothers, Bill (Debbie), Bob (Christy), Jim (Kim), currently residing in Florida; and George ""Jay"" (Sally); many nieces and nephews; his mother-in-law, Lilian Kirchhoff of West Chester and brother-in-law Chris Kirchhoff.

He was born in Morton, Delaware County, and raised in West Chester. He owned and operated T. Bauernschmidt Excavating since 1990. Tim was a 1978 graduate from East High School.
Tim's favorite love was his daughter Kirsten. He was always so proud of her accomplishments with everything that she did. Tim was appreciative of the support Julie gave to him in his business endeavors. Tim had become more than a son-in-law for Carl and Lilian Kirchhoff as he was always there to assist in many of their needs and care.
Tim was an avid Flyers and Phillies fan. He also enjoyed his family time in Ocean City and Captiva, Fla. where he could relax fishing. Tim also spent many hours watching Kirsten develop her achievements in horseback riding.
Tim will be greatly missed by all that considered him husband, father, son, brother, friend, client, work colleague, or acquaintance.
