Mr. Jung earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Architecture from the University of Michigan.

A dedicated architect, he was licensed to work in 16 states. His focus was religious facilities and multi-unit retirement communities. Among his many accomplishments were the Air Force Academy Chapel in Colorado, the United Nations Chapel in New York, the Church of Holy Eucharist in Tabernacle in New Jersey, and more than 60 other churches around the country.

After retiring from architecture, he did substitute teaching and particularly enjoyed teaching art at Hauser.

He was an avid Philadelphia Flyers fan, loved to travel, was an accomplished cook and, most of all, he loved to eat.

Survivors include his companion of 42 years, Kathy Shroyer, and her family, Ruth Shroyer, Karen Londeree (Estill), Brent Londeree (Tina) and Kelley Londeree; and great-nieces and nephews, Levi, Baleigh, Nicklas, Payton, Asher, Taryn, Max, and Eli; his sisters, Mollie, Virginia, Jeanette and Wan Yen; his brother, George; brother-in-law, Sam Louie; niece, Sheri Sattarilli; and nephew, Greg Louie.

Mr. Jung was preceded in death by his parents; a sister, Helen Louie; and a brother, Jerry.

A graveside service will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Bethel Baptist Cemetery with Pastor Wes Jones officiating. Full military rites will be presented by the Bartholomew County Veterans Honor Guard.
