Gregory Paul “Greg” Latz, 60, of Carthage, Indiana, passed away on the morning of Friday, May 17, 2019, following a prolonged battle with cancer. He spent his final days at home surrounded by his loving family.

Greg was born on March 18, 1959, in Dallas, Texas, to the late George Joseph and Betty Jean (Manley) Latz.

He was a 1977 graduate of Monona Grove High School in Monona, Wisconsin, and a 1984 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he earned a BS in Agricultural Mechanization and Management. He was united in marriage to Jane Elizabeth Gedemer on April 4, 1987, at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Canyon Lake, Texas. Upon moving to Indianapolis, Greg worked at the Bike Line in Broad Ripple and was then employed with Geupel DeMars, Inc., providing construction management services for clients such as Eli Lilly and Company and the Indianapolis International Airport Authority. Following the birth of his first child, he became a stay at home dad and home-educated his children. His primary priorities were his Catholic Faith and his beloved family. Some of his favorite activities included camaraderie and lively intellectual conversation with family and friends around the dinner table, home-schooling field trips, biking, hiking, skiing, cross-country travel with family, and a wide variety of “fix-it” projects with his children. He was a man of many interests, including severe storm spotting and amateur radio (W9KCP), local and family history, and railroading. He volunteered for the Carthage, Knightstown, and Shirley Railroad for many years and was a member of the North American Railcar Operators Association (NARCOA). Greg was active for a number of years in the Indianapolis Catholic Homeschooling Apostolate (ICHSA) and was a founding and longtime member of the Latin Mass choir and men’s schola at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Indianapolis. He had been a member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Greenwood since 2012, where he served as treasurer.

Those left to cherish Greg’s memory include his wife of 32 years, Jane Elizabeth Latz, as well as four children: Theresa Marie Latz of Carthage; Kristina Anne Latz of St. Mary’s, Kansas; Michael Joseph Latz of St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary, Dillwyn, Virginia; and Thomas Justin Latz of Carthage; two sisters, Beverly (Rene) Hernandez of San Antonio, Texas, and Nancy (Brad) Adams of Sedro Woolley, Washington; and an aunt, Rose Adele (Latz) Tobben of Washington, Missouri. He will also be missed by a host of relatives and friends.

In addition to his parents, Greg was preceded in death by a preterm infant, Gabrielle Jean.

Visitation will be on Tuesday, May 21, from 4:00 to 8:00 pm. at Heritage Funeral Care, 34 W. Main St.
Knightstown, Indiana 46148, with the recitation of the Holy Rosary at 7:00 pm.

A Requiem Mass will be offered on Wednesday, May 22 at 10:00 am. at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, 245 W. Broadway St., Greenwood, Indiana 46142. Graveside services will be at 5:00 pm (Central Time) at Sacred Heart Cemetery on the grounds of La Salette Academy, 5065 Olivet Rd., Georgetown, Illinois 61846.

I want to Thank-You Theresa for finding me and telling me the news. I am deeply saddened to hear of your Father's passing. My condolences to Jane, Theresa, and all of the other children and family left behind. Greg was not just a college roommate but probably the first person I could identify as being a best friend. Many memories: Mississippi River train chasing; sadness in being with him when we both learned of the death of John Lennon; enlightening and deep conversations; "road trips" sometimes just to have a road trip.
These are all memories from a long time ago, but will not be forgotten. Greg was the best man in my wedding in the very early 80's... he was also one of the best men I ever came to know. So many years have passed since, none of which, that I did not have thoughts of how he and his family were doing, and how fun it would be to catch up.

Regrettably and Unfortunately I missed that train.

Again, my condolences and thank you so much for reaching out to me. Greg will be missed.
