Dennis Wayne Lough, 52, of 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 of Thorntown. They survive.
He never married.
Dennis 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.
Dennis 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.
He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He loved Sunday dinners with the family, and a fire with classic rock ’n‘ roll or blues playing would have been a perfect evening with friends.
Dennis enjoyed picking berries, hunting mushrooms, watching Jeopardy and playing pinochle. He was an avid golfer. He 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 of Thorntown, Kay Kristianson of Avon Park, Fla., Ruth Ann Wyant of Phoenix, Ariz., Robert (Ruby) Hamm of Kokomo, Audary Dixon of Ladoga, Stanley (Patricia) Lough of Darlington, Clifford (Sharon) Lough of Darlington and Lawrence Lyon from Crawfordsville; and numerous cousins.
