Dennis Wayne Lough

Feb. 8, 1961 - April 15, 2013

— Dennis Wayne Lough, 52, Darlington, died Monday, April 15, 2013, at Kindred Transitional Care-Parkwood in Lebanon. Dennis was born in Crawfordsville on Feb. 8, 1961, to Max and Betty Lough, Thorntown. They survive. He never married.

He was a 1979 graduate of Western Boone High School and a 1983 graduate of Ball State University. He worked for Co-Alliance, Wright’s Hardware and R.R. Donnelley & Sons.

He attended Thorntown United Methodist Church, was a member of Thorntown K. of P., a member of the Festival of the Turning Leaves Committee and a member of Darlington Sons of the American Legion.

Dennis enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He loved Sunday diners with the family, and a fire, with classic rock ’n’ roll or blues playing would have been a perfect evening with friends. He enjoyed picking berries, hunting mushrooms, watching “Jeopardy” and playing pinochle. He was an avid golfer, loved tennis, ping pong, pool and a good game of Horse. He loved a challenge and didn’t give up easily.

Since his motor vehicle accident in December 2011, Dennis exhibited great courage throughout his rehabilitation journey. Dennis’ battle was cut short due to complications from pneumonia.

In addition to his parents, Dennis is survived by two brothers, Kevin (Kim) Lough and Scott (Crissy) Lough of Thorntown; nephews, Nick (Amanda) Lough of Huntsville, Ala., and Cody Lough, Kameron Lough and Korbin Lough, all of Thorntown; nieces, Amber Lough, Michaela Lough and Maleigh Lough, all of Thorntown; aunts and uncles, Jane (Harold) Clouser, Thorntown, Kay Kristianson, Avon Park, Fla., Ruth Ann Wyant, Phoenix, Ariz., Robert (Ruby) Hamm, Kokomo, Audary Dixon, Ladoga, Stanley (Patricia) Lough, Darlington, Clifford (Sharon) Lough, Darlington, and Lawrence Lyon, Crawfordsville, and numerous cousins.

Family members preceding him in death were Fred Hamm, Jean and Devon Moffitt, Lucille Lyon, Barbara and Robert Denny, James Dixon, Bjorn Kristianson, Howard Lough, Keith Lough and Linda McBride.

Friends may call from 3 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Thorntown United Methodist Church, with a Knights of Pythias memorial service following calling. Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Friday at the church, with Pastor Karen Ottjes and Pastor Mark Snodderly officiating. Burial will be in Maple Lawn Cemetery, Thorntown.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Dennis Lough Memorial Scholarship in care of Home National Bank, 117 E. Main St., Thorntown, IN 46017.
