       James E. Killosky, former Chesterton Police Chief, passed away peacefully on October 19, 2020 at the age of 78.  He was born on November 15, 1941 in Gary, IN to Alexander and Alexandria “Olga” (Sulkowski) Killosky, both of whom preceded him in death.  

       On September 7, 1962 at St. Patrick Catholic Church, he married the love of his life, Madelaine Killosky, who preceded him in death on September 10, 2006.

       He is survived by his loving sons, Mike (Jeanne) Killosky of Chesterton, IN and Matt Killosky of Zionsville, IN; his grandchildren, Jordan Killosky and Mallory Killosky; his sister, Geraldine Ranalli of Chesterton, IN; and by his many nieces and nephews.

       He was also preceded in death by his brother, Alexander Joseph Killosky Jr., and by his niece, Charlotte Jean Kolasa.  

       Jim was a member of St. Patrick Catholic Church.  He loved cars, fishing, golfing, boating, and watching sporting events. Being a police officer was his whole life.  He started working at Chesterton Police Department, starting out as a patrolman, then detective, and ultimately became the Chief of Police. When he retired from the Chesterton Police force, he moved to Las Vegas, where he worked for the Clark County School District Police. He was also the President of the Chief of Police Association, which was recognized nationwide.

Mike & Matt,
I am so sorry for your loss. My family had some really great times with your dad, they are memories we will cherish. He was always teasing and joking around, so much fun to be with. A few years ago he gave my kids their first ride in a convertible. I’m surprised the seatbelts held us in. He just laughed as he sped over the hills on the country roads while they shrieked and bounced in the backseat. My thoughts and prayers are with you. -Kristin Gaines
