Tim Kulow, owner of Historic Bruce Funeral Home in Fort Dodge, Iowa has been serving families in Iowa and Minnesota for the past 38 years. Growing up in Graettinger, Iowa in a large family of nine, Tim developed his work ethic at a very young age. After graduating from Graettinger High School in 1974, Tim furthered his education by working at John Morrel in Estherville, Iowa while attending Iowa Lakes Community College and Mankato State College. Tim then transferred to the University of Minnesota where he received his degree in Mortuary Science in 1981. Tim spent the next 30 plus years in Minnesota where he owned and operated funeral homes in Tracy, Tyler, Westbrook, Walnut Grove and Redwood Falls. Tim also built the first crematory in Southwest Minnesota in 1991. After retiring and selling his business to his former employee, Tim retired for a few years. Funeral service called Tim back to Iowa when Historic Bruce Funeral Home in Fort Dodge became available for sale. Since purchasing the Bruce Funeral home in 2012 Tim has made many improvements to the facility as well as equipment and furnishings.
