Jack Edward Krumreich


Jack Edward Krumreich left the home that he created to be with our Lord on August 12, 2019. He was born January 13, 1935, to Grace Richmond Krumreich and Walter Krumreich, in Sullivan, IN. He was preceded in death by his parents and his older daughter, Kris Fenoglio.
Jack was a tool and die designer; he completed his apprenticeship at Allis-Chalmers then worked at Twigg Industries in Brazil, IN, Vigo Designers and then Tri Industries from 1960-1994, when he retired for the third time. He established his own company, Design Services LLC, through which he was still consulting for GE Unison in Terre Haute, IN. His final retirement was 6 weeks before his death.
In 1994 Jack went back to Sullivan and married Ellen Tucker. They celebrated 25 years of marriage in June of this year. They owned several businesses in Sullivan, then Jack built a New York style loft in a building they owned on the square in Sullivan, where they have lived for 12 years. Jack welcomed the Sullivan Area Art Guild to have its gallery on the first floor of his and Ellen's home.
Jack was a member of the Sullivan Lions Club, Main Street Sullivan and Heart of Sullivan, a Main Street organization. In 2011 he was honored with the George S. Ridgway Building Preservation Award by the Sullivan County Historical Society. He was a member of Maryland Community Church in Terre Haute, IN, where his nephew Scot Longyear is senior pastor.
Jack is survived by his wife, Ellen; three sons, Doug (Debbie), David (Catherine) and John Krumreich; and a daughter, Jayne (Robert) Stewart. He is also survived by the sons he acquired in the package deal with Ellen, Cory (Stacey, DNP) and K.C. (Tracy) Smith. He had 18 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. His sister, Gigi, and her husband Bill Longyear also survive, along with their sons, Scot and Darel, and their daughter, Virginia.
Jack donated his body to Indiana University Medical School and is in his next phase of service to humanity. There will be no service at his request. Jack's celebration of life took place in his hospital room and his home where he was visited, called, emailed, mailed and texted by his very important work family, his family and friends.

So sorry to hear of the death of your father. I was also unaware of the passing of Kris. I hope you find peace after your losses.
