Obituary for Dennis L. "Denny" Thompson

Print
Dennis L. “Denny” Thompson, 60, passed away Monday, October 8, 2018, after a courageous 13 month battle with pancreatic cancer. He was preceded in death by his father, Guy,

Denny was a two-time winner of the Jr. Falls City tournament, was a member of the two-time State Championship golf team at Doss High School, and attended the University of Louisville on a golf scholarship. He was a member of the Professional Golfers Association, PGA Kentucky, where he was awarded the Deacon Palmer Award, and a member of the Doss High School Hall of Fame. His entire working career was spent in the golf industry, beginning at Iroquois and Seneca Golf Courses, and Glenmary, GlenOaks, Audubon, South Park and Oldham County Country Clubs. He was, until recently, the General Manager of the University of Louisville Golf Club, a position he considered his “dream job”. He touched many lives in his life, but no one will miss him more than his family.

Denny is survived by his wife of almost 30 years, Mary (Smith) Thompson; his son, Evan and daughter, Caitlin. Also surviving is his mother, Rose; his brother, Guy C. Thompson (Elaine); and his sister, Patsy Russell (Gary); and his brothers-in-law, John (Shae) and Bill Smith (Tonya). He is survived by many nieces, nephews, and other family members. He is also survived by many friends, whom he considered brothers.

The family wishes to thank the staff of the Baptist Health Park Tower and Hosparus for the excellent care Denny received.
