Tim Boeglin, 58, of Bloomington, passed away on June 16, 2016. Tim was born on June 7, 1958, in Evansville, Indiana, the third of six children of Tom and Betty (Kempf) Boeglin. He grew up in Ferdinand, Indiana, and graduated from the University of Notre Dame and the IU Maurer School of Law (Bloomington).

Tim began his career in 1984 practicing law at Wildman, Harrold, Allen & Dixon in Chicago. In 1987, Tim left that firm, and with a friend formed XJD Corp. (so named because both were ex-JDs), a company that became one of the country’s first sellers of custom mouse pads. In 1994, Tim moved to Bloomington, Indiana, where XJD grew into one of Bloomington’s largest manufacturing businesses. Tim sold XJD and in 2005 became the Founding Director of the IU Elmore Entrepreneurship Law Clinic, a partnership between the IU Kelley School of Business and the Law School. For the past several years, Tim was a Principal and Senior Vice President of Key Auctioneers in Indianapolis, and more recently a part-owner of the Dubois County Bombers, a wooden-bat baseball team for college students that is part of the Ohio Valley League.

Tim travelled extensively: a college year spent in Innsbruck, Austria, motivated a lifetime of adventures across the world with family and friends. Even after cancer led to a leg amputation in 2014, Tim continued traveling extensively, hiking, golfing, skiing, riding ATVs, kayaking, and swimming. Tim’s sense of adventure was matched only by his sense of humor: after the amputation, Tim told his sister Sue (then Lt. Governor of Indiana) that he would now be better at “stumping” for her.

Although he had impressive business accomplishments, Tim’s life is best marked by his family and friends. In 1984, he married the love of his life, Cynthia Reichard, with whom he raised two cherished sons. Tim made numerous BFFs even before that term was invented. In particular, Tim had a “surrogate family” of law school classmates with whom Tim and family vacationed annually for the past 20 years.

Tim is survived by his wife, Cynthia Reichard; two sons, August Boeglin, of Honolulu, HI, and Lucas Boeglin, of San Diego, CA; his parents, Tom and Betty Boeglin of Ferdinand; three sisters, Deb Knust of Richardson, TX, Sue Ellspermann of Ferdinand, and Jennifer Klem of Coppell, TX; two brothers, Rick Boeglin of Arlington, TX, and Brian Boeglin of Pittsburgh, PA; and numerous nieces, nephews, and in-laws.

Visitation will be at Becher Funeral Home in Ferdinand from 3-7pm on June 21, 2016, followed immediately by a memorial service at 7pm. A private burial service will follow on Wednesday morning. A memorial celebration of Tim’s life will be held later in the year in Bloomington. In lieu of flowers, donations can be directed to the Sarcoma Foundation of America.
