Greeman, Theodore "Kim"*  
Theodore "Kim" Greeman 68 years old, passed away on Saturday, April 11, 2015 after a brief illness. He was preceded in death by his wife, Cornelia Zeman, in 2002. He leaves behind many, many friends who mourn his passing. Kim was born in Indianapolis to Theodore Monroe "Ted" Greeman and Joann Walker Greeman in 1946. Kim lived in Indianapolis all his life and shared many happy hours with friends from all walks of life. Kim's interests were many. He had a life-long love of nature and was knowledgeable about our animals, birds, trees, wildflowers; about gems, fossils and minerals. An evening spent with Kim was a learning experience. Whether playing bridge, euchre or hearts, or sitting in a classroom, or "holding court" at home or a restaurant, Kim approached each individual with respect and dignity and these qualities won him many friends over the years. Kim's energy and passion for the natural world had a lasting impact on people he met and knew and people whose lives he indirectly helped through his geological work. In his personal life, he was quick to laugh, a fun and lively companion, a man of eclectic musical and other interests in the natural world, a passionate numismatician, a dog and cat lover, an art lover and a personal and professional friend to many throughout Indiana. Kim was a graduate of the Department of Geological Sciences of  Indiana University Purdue University at Indianapolis. In 2006, he received the Distinguished Service Award of the Professional Geologists of Indiana in recognition of his exemplary contributions to the science and profession of geology in Indiana. He was an organizing and motivational force behind Indiana Geologists and was recognized in 2013 for his central role in arranging speakers for their meetings. During his multi-decade career with the U.S. Geological Survey, Kim had lead or critical supporting roles in many studies that advanced understanding of the groundwater hydrology of Indiana and that brought benefits to the environment and the lives of many Hoosiers. His proudest professional accomplishment may have been his work to describe the hydrogeology of the Maumee River Basin, Upper Wabash River Basin, and East Fork White River Basin in chapters of the 1994 Hydrogeologic Atlas of Aquifers in Indiana. His insights and publications on the relation of surface lineaments to water bearing features in the carbonate bedrock of southwestern Indiana guided water well drillers to successfully establish reliable groundwater supplies for homes and businesses. A long-standing joke by one of his friends said if Kim knew your shoe size and the spot in Indiana where you were standing he could tell you how much ground water was passing beneath your feet per second. Not far from the truth. He will be sorely missed by his many friends. Reflecting his long support of Channel 20, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to "Metropolitan Indianapolis Public Broadcasting." A memorial service will be held Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 2 p.m. with visitation beginning at 1:30 p.m. at Leppert Mortuary, Nora Chapel. www.leppertmortuary.com
