Timothy Joseph Gehm was born October 23, 1960 to Jeanne and Jack Gehm in Streator, Illinois. He graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Business Administration. Soon after he earned his CPA, graduated with a Master's Degree in Business Administration, and a degree from the Graduate School of Banking in Wisconsin.

Tim married Kyla Butler of Carroll, Iowa on May 11, 1985. They moved to Dallas, Texas, where their daughter Molly Grace was born. Soon after they moved back to Des Moines, Tim was hired by Bankers Trust and two weeks later their son Austin Joseph was born. Tim worked at Bankers Trust from 1990 to 2018.

Tim enjoyed attending Iowa State football and basketball games with his mother and family. He also loved his yearly fishing trips to Canada with his son, Austin, his brother-in-law, Clayton Coder, and friends. Running in half-marathons, mushroom hunting, and working in his yard kept him healthy and happy.
