Funeral Services for Jerry Denbo Set for Thursday

Funeral services have been set for Thursday in French Lick for former State Representative Jerry Denbo.

He died Monday morning at the age of 63.

Denbo spent years pushing to win approval for a casino in French Lick.

A bill approving the casino finally was passed in 2003, and the casino at the French Lick Resort opened in 2006.

Denbo served 17-years in the Indiana house before resigning in 2007.

Denbo also authored legislation making it legal to post the Ten Commandments in public buildings.
