Vernon R. Chupp

GOSHEN — Vernon R. Chupp, 72, died early Tuesday morning at IU Health Goshen Hospital.

He was born Oct. 27, 1940 in Elkhart County, to Jesse and Mary (Chupp) Chupp.

On Dec. 31, 1965 he married Mary M. Prough. She survives along with a daughter, Verray Chupp, Indianapolis; a brother, Lester Chupp, Goshen; three sisters, Irene Miller, Archbold, Ohio, Dorothy Nisley, LaGrange, and Viola York, Goshen; a stepsister, Millie Schmucker, Goshen; and a stepbrother, Glendon Jones, Goshen.

He was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, Leroy and Delbert Chupp; a stepsister, Mattie Mishler; and three brothers-in-law, Nelson Miller, Bill Nisley and Roger York.

Mr. Chupp was a lifetime area resident and member of the Dunlap United Methodist Church. He worked for more than 20 years at American Steel Rule Die after owning and operating his own shoe repair business in Elkhart. He was a talented handyman, able to fix most anything put in front of him. He enjoyed antique steam tractors, going to flea markets, festivals and auctions, and spending time outdoors. His love for his family was always known, and his faith in God was strong.

A private family graveside service is planned at Forest Grove Cemetery, Middlebury.
