Denver Allen Polley age 66 was born on December 3, 1953 to Clarence Polley (deceased) and Marie Cook Polley at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Covington, Ky. Denver died on September 3, 2020 in Lexington Ky. He is survived by his mother Marie Polley and four siblings Pam Grigsby, Garry (Donna) Polley, Rosemarie (Gary) Caywood, and Peary (Cheryl) Polley.
Denver took Jesus as his personal Savior and was baptized as a youngster. In his youth, Denver learned to ride a bike and swim like other boys his age, and proudly participated in the elementary school play “Tiny Tim” in Greenup, Ky. During his teenage years, he was a student of Karate and breaking boards was his passion. He and his brother Garry put on demonstrations for the church youth group inspiring physical fitness and discipline. Denver was a graduate of Henry Clay High School and began his working years as an usher and projectionist at the Strand Theater. He served his state and community as a member of the Kentucky National Guard. Following his commitment to National Guard, Denver became his Mom’s personal chauffeur and right-hand man. Denver also helped his mom take care of his Grandmother. He always enjoyed playing his radio loud and making his favorite foods like spaghetti, chili, brownies and sweet iced tea. During his later years, he lived at Rose Terrace Lodge, in Nicholasville, Ky. He looked forward to daily walks to the local Speedway and getting his sweets. The highlight of his week was having family Sunday dinner at his sister’s Pam’s home. As much he enjoyed dinner, he always wanted to get back to Rose Terrace by 9pm for snack time.
Denver overcame great challenges throughout his lifetime. His family is grateful that his kind spirit is now free. Denver will be missed by all who knew him. He was met in Heaven by his Savior Jesus, his Dad, his grandparents, his nephew Daniel and his dear friend Everett. May he watch over his family until they are all together again.
