Honquest started in the funeral profession over 30 years ago in Palatine, Illinois. After
receiving his Bachelors Degree from WesternIllinoisUniversity, Tim went
to Worsham College of Mortuary Science, graduating in 1988. Coming to Rockford,
Tim served his apprenticeship with a local funeral home and, liking Rockford,
he then stayed on with that funeral home before starting his own in 1995 in
Loves Park and opening a second location in Roscoe in 2007. Then establishing Quest Cremation Services.
Tim has been through the loss and grieving process of his sister's untimely
death and therefore made it his mission as a funeral service provider to take the
time to listen and hear the needs of the families he serves.
Tim is the proud father of two children, Zach and Zoe. Outside of
the business, Tim and his wife, Rachel, enjoy spending time and relaxing with
family and friends. Tim presently serves on the Rockford Chamber of
Commerce Board of Directors.
