Joseph Allen Kuhn July 17, 1952 (Age 65)

   Joseph Kuhn, known to those who loved him as Joe, died peacefully Friday, October 6, 2017, at Bloomington Hospital surrounded by family and friends. Joe was born in Indianapolis, Indiana to Walter and Shirley Kuhn. He was married 35 years to Dorothy Linville Kuhn. Joe lived most of his life in Indianapolis and spent the past 15 years in Bloomington, where he assisted his mother in her final years. Joe loved 60’s and 70’s muscle cars. He especially loved the feeling of the warm sun on his shoulders and visits from family and friends. He greatly missed his independence and driving his truck at the end of his life. His death was caused in part by a brain tumor that he had for many years. Joe was preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Shirley Kuhn, and his wife, Dorothy Kuhn. He is survived by his sister Sandy Glover (David) and brothers, John Kuhn (Kloy) and Thomas Kuhn (Melissa), as well as the following nieces and nephews: Julie Thompson (Don), Gary Glover, Lori Preston (Brad), Jennifer Evans (Nathan), Ben Keller-Kuhn (Honna), and Alison Keller-Kuhn.


    In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions be made to the Shalom Center of Bloomington, Indiana. There will be a small informal gathering in remembrance of Joe. This will take place on Tuesday, October 24th, at 6pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Bloomington, in the library on the second floor. The address is 2120 North Fee Lane, Bloomington, 47408
