Denver Lee Scrimager

Denver Lee Scrimager, age 81, went to be with the Lord on 07/17/2020 surrounded by family in his home in Urbana, IL. 

Denver was born in Naomi, KY on 08/03/1938 to Carl and Lillie Scrimager. He married Phyllis Scrimager on 04/24/1999. 

Denver owned and operated several businesses over his lifetime including a tower construction company, tire store and, most recently, a lawn care service. He loved music and enjoyed playing guitar and singing with his wife Phyllis at church and other functions. In the past he sang and “picked” at family gatherings with his brothers, nieces and nephews. Denver could fix just about anything mechanical or electric. 

He is survived by his wife, Phyllis Scrimager and his daughters Janet Roy, Kathy (Tom) Apperson, Brenda Case and son Terry (Peg) Carlton; grandchildren Tommy (Heidi) Apperson, Michael Apperson, Darren (Jennifer) Sebens and his brother Clifford (Susie) Scrimager. Denver also leaves behind stepsons Freddy (Denise) Hollingsworth and Shad Hollingsworth as well as grandkids Alan, Chris and Missy and 10 great grandchildren. 

A graveside service for family is being planned through Morgan Memorial Home of Savoy and the arrangements are pending.
