James 'Jim' Saul

May 27, 1949 - Sept. 17, 2013

CORNING — James M. “Jim” Saul, 64, fought a courageous battle with multiple sclerosis for many years before succumbing to acute renal failure at 4:25 a.m. Tuesday at home surrounded by God, family and his faithful service dog Lincoln.

He was born May 27, 1949, in Indianapolis, to William and Miriam (Faudree) Saul.

He graduated in 1967 from Ben Davis High School. He was a U.S. Army veteran. Jim had a great love for his Catholic faith, family and the Amish community. He lived a life in service to others, including volunteer fireman, primary EMT instructor, Washington police officer and crime scene investigator. After having to retire from law enforcement, he attended the University of Southern Indiana and achieved a Bachelor of Science degree in graphic design. He was a spokesperson for the K-9 assistance program. He was a member of St. John Catholic Church in Loogootee, the Fraternal Order of Police and the University of Southern Indiana Alumni. He was compassionate to animals of all kinds. He spent his spare time making jewelry and on graphic designs.

He is survived by his wife, Carol (Colvin) Saul, whom he married Sept. 17, 1975; two daughters, Jennifer (Derick Neukam) Saul-Neukam of Jasper, and Jamie (Anthony Corlett) Lueken of Montgomery; one son, Christopher Saul of Montgomery; six grandchildren, William Compton, James Lueken, Jenna Lueken, Jackson Corlett, Madison Saul and Damion Saul; Anthony Corlett’s daughter Shelby Corlett; and his service dog, Lincoln.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Friday at St. John Catholic Church in Loogootee, with Rev. Joseph Erbacher as celebrant. Burial will be in St. Patrick Cemetery in Corning.

Visitation is from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday at Ed Lee Mortuary, with a FOP memorial at 6 p.m.
