Jack Gilpin Obituary

Jack Edward Gilpin, 56, passed away on February 25, 2024, leaving behind memories of love and warmth that touched the hearts of all who knew him. Jack was born in Indianapolis, IN on February 22, 1968, to Edward and Madonna (Zook) Gilpin.

Jack was a remarkable individual, unforgettable in every sense. His gentle demeanor and kindness endeared him to everyone he met. Despite being largely non-verbal, he possessed a unique ability to communicate effectively, often expressing his affection through hugs, thumbs up, and winks. His charm knew no bounds, and to Jack, every girl was his girlfriend.

A lover of simple joys, Jack found pleasure in bowling, spending time outdoors, and engaging in activities with his family. He delighted in coloring posters and watching TikTok videos, finding joy in life's little moments.

Jack was deeply devoted to his faith and was an active member of his church community. He dedicated countless hours to helping others, embodying the true spirit of selflessness. His favorite reward for his service was a meatball sub, a simple pleasure that brought him immense happiness.

Jack's passing leaves a void in the lives of those who knew him, but his memory will be cherished forever. He is survived by his cousin and surrogate mother, Penny, loving cousins Herbert Demaree, Nikolaos Adkins, Robert Demaree, and Lou Demaree, special friend Julie Fore, and numerous other extended family members and friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents and all of his aunts and uncles.

Visitation for Jack will be held from 4-8 PM on Thursday, February 29, 2024, at Fountain Square Cremation & Funeral Services. Funeral services will take place on Friday, March 1, 2024, at 12 PM (Noon), at Mt. Calvary Church, 1840 Sloan Ave. Burial will follow the services at Lincoln Memory Gardens in Whitestown.
