Tim Pelong


Tim Pelong, 66, passed away Thursday, June 13, 2024, at the Mahaska Health Hospice Serenity House in Oskaloosa.

Tim L. Pelong, son of James Walter and Carmen (Rogers) Pelong, was born February 4, 1958, in Knoxville, Iowa. He attended school in Knoxville and entered the construction industry at a young age. August 24, 1984, he was united in marriage to Cindy Jo Godlove in Knoxville.

Throughout his life, he worked for contractors in the Knoxville and Oskaloosa areas. For many years, he laid concrete with his brother, Jim, and his father-in-law, John, who drove a cement truck for Ideal Ready-Mix. In 2014, health concerns caused his early retirement. He was a member of the Eagles Lodge and enjoyed fishing, camping, and vegetable gardening.

His family includes his wife, Cindy Godlove of Oskaloosa; a son, Jacob James Pelong of Fremont, IA; a step-son, Jared Gene West of Oskaloosa; three grandchildren: Sydney Knoot of Coralville, IA, Alivia Vandenberg of Beacon, and Maxxom Johnston of Fremont; a brother, Jim Pelong of Knoxville; a sister, Julie Peters of Beacon; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Tim was preceded in death by two sisters: Linda Claver and Janetta Almond.

As was his wish, Tim’s body has been cremated.
