Thomas 'Tom' A. Denney, 68, died Oct. 19, 2010, in Pueblo, following an extended illness. Tom was born Nov. 29, 1941, in Fowler, Colo. to David S. and E. Frances Denney. He grew up in Fowler and retired from Mountain Bell Telephone in 1990. A multi-talented man, Tom enjoyed flying and rebuilding airplanes and spent countless hours doing both. He was a longtime member of the Fowler Flying Club. Tom helped numerous others building and rebuilding their projects, as well as spending innumerable hours in his garage working on his own. His philosophy was, 'if it was rusted, busted or didn't run, I'll work on it.' In later years as he started experiencing some illness, he enjoyed rebuilding Cushman scooters with his sons. During the last year of his life as he battled various effects of illness, Tom opened the door for God's grace and forgiveness. He finished life with joy, peace and a hope of eternal life. Tom is survived by wife, Mary Lou of Pueblo; son, Brent (Jackie) Denney; mother, E. Frances Denney; brother, David W. Denney; daughter-in-law, Ruth Denney, all of Fowler; and stepdaughters, Carolyn (Michael) Brook, Connie (Tony) Hass and Chris (Anthony) Cortese. Tom was preceded in death by his son, Darren L. Denney in 2009 and father, David S. Denney in 1971. The family would like to thank Parkview Medical Center and University Park Care Center for their care of Tom this past year. Graveside services will be held at a later date. Online condolences, MontgomerySteward.com

  4. Dear Tom Denny Family,

    What fond memories we have of Tom. He and Vernon developed a very close friendship around the ‘Fowler Airport’ over the many years of flying.
    Tom was a very dear friend sharing knowledge, re-building planes, and flying experience with Vernon. When Vernon was hospitalized in Pueblo due to several serious health issues, he visited with the family on a regular basis, lending support for all through a very difficult time. We will always be grateful for his presence and support.
    Tom will be greatly missed by friends, family and anyone who knew him.

    Our sincere sympathy,
    The John Steyer Family

  5. Brent and Family,
    We are so sad for your great loss and a loss for us all. Tom was a wonderful friend and we will miss him. He is now out of pain and suffering and “flying” again. We are here for anything you need. We will always have fond memories of the times spent at the Fowler airport. God’s Blessigs and EXTRA Strength at this time.

  6. Sad to hear of Tom’s passing, however when we think of Tom we think of his happy face and genuine friendship. We have many good memories of working together and being friends over the years.

  7. Brent, Jackie, Frances, Dave,
    We are so sorry about the loss of Tom. The Denneys and Barnards have shared many adventures over the years. Friendships like that never die. We are all thinking of you.

  8. Brent, we are sorry to hear of the passing of your father. If there is anything I can do please contact me. I will keep you in my prayers. Russ

  9. Dear Tom Denney Family,
    Just a note to tell you how sorry we are to hear of Tom’s passing–he and Mary Lou were very good neighbors of ours and Tom was a very good neighbor and friend. Our house was hit by a car a few years back and we were not at home, Tom was one of the first at the house, helping and inquiring about our welfare. That was the kind of man Tom was—he reminded me of my own good Dad–again our sincere sympathies and condolences. Carolyn & Bob–neighbors on 29th street

  10. My Condolences to the family of Tom Denney. Be strong in the knowledge that in his way he loved you all. Keep the faith that he is no longer in pain. “O Lord, increase our faith.”
    My prayers are with you. – Nancy (Phelps-Denney)McIntosh

  11. Mary Lou,
    I read with sadness today, the passing of Tom from this life. Tom and my husband, Herman “Corky” Denny were longtime friends from the Tin Shop. They often joked about having the same last name only for the “e”. I will never forget Tom’s kindness in helping me with some garage “stuff” that needed to be disposed of at that time. He so generously offered his time in hauling some of it off and said that his son could use it on the farm in Fowler. I shall not ever forget his friendship with Corky. You will be in my thoughts and prayers as you move forward in your life without Tom.

    Jack, Barbara, and Karen Bauer

  13. Brent and family,
    Sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad. Hold tight to your memories for comfort, lean on your friends for strength and always remember how much you are cared about. If you need anything don’t hesitate to ask.
