This son, brother, cousin, husband, father, uncle and great uncle died Saturday, June 30, at St. Vincent Hospital from complications of a stroke suffered June 22. Born Jan. 2, 1945, he was 73 years old. He was a man of the Earth, of the Sky and of Music. Jim was a deep thinker, a great spirit and an excellent compatriot in this journey of Life. We are sad to see him leave us, and we will celebrate our memories of him forever.
Born in Indianapolis, he attended School #84, Shortridge High School, North Central High School, Northwestern University, Wabash College and Indiana University. He was a smart man. His major in college was anthropology, which gave him great insight into humanity, and he was quick with a good laugh.
Jim was a nurseryman by trade and had great respect for trees and all things green. In that capacity, he partnered with brother John in their own company, Trees on Earth, then worked a stint at Mark Holeman Inc. before becoming a chief grounds keeper and landscape architect at DePauw University, from which he retired in 2009.
Jim was preceded in death by his father, Dr. James C. Katterjohn, and his mother, Patricia S. Katterjohn. He is survived by his wife Patricia Lynch Katterjohn; his daughter, Anna Lynch, and his son, Neal James; his brothers, John and Chris; nieces and nephews Sara, Rachel, Kyle and Christopher; and grandnieces and grandnephews Quinn, Colton, Keaton, Maddox and Eli.
