James Jerome Krupowicz

James Jerome Krupowicz, of Zionsville, passed away March 14, 2013, after a hard-fought battle with renal cancer.  

He was born Feb. 2, 1957, to Jerome V. and Geraldine (Kestian) Krupowicz in Chicago, Ill. Jim graduated from Plainfield (Illinois) High School and University of Illinois and received his MBA from Indiana University. He was a project manager for Eli Lilly, where he was employed for 34 years.

He was an active member of St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church in Westfield, where he was involved with the Confirmation Youth Ministry and various other church ministries.

(Deeter) Krupowicz, whom he married Sept. 29, 1979; his daughters, Amber Witherbee, KimberLee Gummere (Robert), Janelle Hocutt (Zach), and Katelyn Krupowicz (Jason LaPaglia); eight grandchildren; his mother, Geraldine Krupowicz; siblings, Philip Krupowicz ( Donna), Rosanne Deardurff (Chris), William Krupowicz (Kathy), and Joanne Sebold (Terry); in-laws, Walter and Ellen Deeter; and brothers-in-law, Raymond Deeter (Nancy) and Clayton Deeter (Lee).
