James E. “Jim” Chapman

73, of Mooresville, passed away on December 6, 2023, at home, surrounded by his family. Jim was born on January 18, 1950, in Indianapolis, Indiana to the late Ernest Chapman and Annie (Cardwell) Chapman.

Jim was born and raised in Indianapolis and was a graduate of Arsenal Technical High School. He married the love of his life, Nancy Brooks on February 6, 1970, and recently celebrated 53 years of marriage. Jim worked in logistics for PR Mallory for 20 years, then B&B Welding and most recently for Ryder Whirlpool, where he retired in 2017. He enjoyed fishing and cheering on his hometown Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Pacers. He was known as “Papa” to many and “Big Money Jim” to his family and friends as he always had good luck when going to the casinos.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Sherry LaFave.

He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Nancy Chapman; son Scott Chapman (Wendy Canull); daughter Lori Brawner (Kurtt Hirschy), and one grandson Sean Garshwiler.
