Richard K. 'Pete' Lennox, 77, Zionsville

Richard K. "Pete" Lennox, 77, Zionsville, passed away May 6, 2014.

He was born in Indianapolis May 8, 1936, to the late Richard C. and Eleanor Lennox.

Pete was an architect of note, having designed a number of buildings in the Indianapolis, Chicago and Cincinnati areas, including the Indianapolis Power & Light Building on the Circle, the State Life Building, One North Capitol Building, Lawrence Central High School and Lebanon High School. One of his favorite buildings was Perry Worth Elementary School near Lebanon, where three out of his six granddaughters attended school. He also designed a number of buildings for Duke Realty Group in Indianapolis and Hillenbrand Industries in Batesville, and was president of the LOM Corporation until his retirement in 1991.

Pete was a 1954 graduate of Shortridge High School. He was a graduate of Miami of Ohio University in 1958 and earned a master's degree at Princeton University. He was also a long-time member of the John Purdue Club, a die-hard Boilermaker and lifelong and sometimes long-suffering Baltimore Orioles fan. Pete was a member of the alpha chapter of Phi Kappa Tau fraternity while attending Miami of Ohio, and was part of a Phi Tau triple legacy with his father and son, Richard C. and Mike. After retirement, Pete lived near Nashville and was a member of Nashville United Methodist Church.

Pete was a doting grandfather to six granddaughters, Corina (Kasey) Lennox, Katie Lennox, Jericha Mill, Eliza and Sara Lennox and Ryleigh Mill, who all survive. Other survivors are his wife, Joan Lennox of Zionsville; son, Mike (Angela) Lennox of Lebanon; daughter, Kris (Stuart) Mill of Indianapolis; brother-in- law, Bill (Louise) Brooks of Glen Cove, N.Y.; a number of nephews and nieces; and a hand-made A-frame cabin he designed and built in the woods of Brown County, where he was known to sit in his canoe, smoke his pipe, and do some fly fishing.

Calling will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, May 9, at Flanner and Buchanan, Zionsville. Services will be conducted at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 10, at Hoosier Village, with visitation one hour prior to service.
