Michael Thomas Latz
51, of Zionsville, died March 29, 2013 after a brief but courageous battle with cancer. He was born on March 23, 1962 to David and Barbara Ann (Fisher) Latz. Michael was a 1980 graduate of Brebeuf Prepatory School and received both a BS in Civil Engineering and a BS in Land Surveying from Purdue University. Michael married Suk Kyong "Sukie" Kim on September 7, 1996 in Dallas, Texas. He was a former employee of American Structurepoint.
Being a devoted husband to Sukie and dad to his two children, Emma and Lachlan, were the most important things in Michael's life. He used his engineering skills to help build sets for Emma's ballet recitals, and he coached Lachlan's soccer team and helped with his football team. Michael enjoyed working with wood, hiking in the mountains, and cheering for his beloved Green Bay Packers. He owned shares in the Packers, and has his name on a brick at Lambeau Field. Michael served his community as a member of the Boone County Redevelopment Committee and as a board member and former president of the Boone County Economic Development Committee.
