Dr. Penn was my daughter's pediatrician. She was born with severe cerebral palsy. I could not have made it through the first few years without Dr. Penn's wonderful help and advice. He will always have a special place in my heart.
Dear Mrs. Penn, I am so saddened by the loss of Dr. Penn. He was also my pediatrician beginning in 1967 when we moved to Lexington. He was a good friend of my Uncle CC Slone and, of course, all of the the Slone kids went to him. I was always very sick as a child and so was my younger brother. Dr. Penn went above and beyond to care for us and would call at night and early in the morning to make sure we were okay. He would make special arrangements for a private room at the hospital for my brother and check on my Mom, knowing she was rarely getting rest. He was an amazing man and it thrills me to know that I will see him again in Heaven. I pray for God to give you strength to make it through these very difficult days. Thank you for sharing your wonderful husband with so many of us. We were certainly privileged!
My heart saddens to hear of the loss of Dr. Penn. He was not only a wonderful spiritual man, but and AMAZING Dr. and friend. He became my dr. over 46 years ago to me and my sisters, then to all our children too. When my one sister was very seriously sick, he was a savior to our family spending many hours at the hospital with us, our home, and making special arrangements at any time night or day to come to the rescue of a frantic parent who had a sick child. Your memory will be in our hearts forever and thoughts and prayers to your family who sacrificed so much of his time to the help and love of others.

another story my mom told me...my older brother got sick with an appendicitis and my dad took him to the hospital...they REALLY wanted Dr. Penn to look at him so they found him AT the UK football game! He left the game (not so thrilled about that I am sure) and met them at the hospital to give them his opinion...he was that kind of doctor!!!
Dr. Penn was my pediatrican when I was a child. After we got married I realized he was my husbands doctor as a child too! We remembered Dr. Penn as being very kind. My mom tells me that when we would get really sick that Dr. Penn would come by the house so that she wouldn't have to get us out! Praying for your family during this time!
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Along with all 8 of my children, I have the fondest memories of Denny. His caring manner and sensible approach to medicine was comforting and calming. He was truly one of a kind. May he rest in Peace.
Dr. Penn was my pediatrician when I was little. I called him DR. NEEDLE! He came to our house to change dressings on my abdomen every day! One of only a handful of memories I have. Years later he was my sons doctor. What a gift.
So Sorry for the loss of this wonderful man. Such a gentle soul and so loving. I was so blessed to have known him when I worked for Dr. Greg Cooper, it was always a blessing seeing his wonderful smiling face. prayers sent for your family.
He was one of the finest.
Denny was a valued family friend, there to celebrate in the good times as well as being supportive in sad ones. Those of us who were lucky to call Denny a friend were blessed with having his presence in our lives. He will be missed. Brenda and family, you have my deepest sympathies.
Dr. Penn Will be greatly missed.He was my family"s Dr. when I was born in 1957 .He was the best and he has touched the lives of many physically as well as with his spirituality .God gave him such a wonder gift to help heal others and now he is in heaven receiving his rewards from the GOD ALMIGHTY. Thank you Dr. Penn for giving my family (Great Health) with your gift of medical knowledge..We Loved you and will miss you greatly.. Lynn Skillman
Have many fond memories of Dr Penn! He was my husband's pediatrician, as well as my children's. I had a very sick little boy that spent alot of time in & out of the hospital. Dr Penn was AMAZING and always accessible during a very scary time for our family! I will NEVER forget how awesome he was with my children (and me). Rest in peace, Dr Penn!
Fourty years ago, I was a first time mother and would call in a panic over the slightest change in my new born son. After checking him over, Dr. Penn would often give me a "look & a smile" and say "Well, the baby is doing great but I'm not so sure about you".
Loving thoughts and special prayers of healing to Dr. Penn's loved ones.
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
We am so sorry to read of Dr. Penn's passing. He was our beloved pediatrician for our four children. I saw him at the post office a few years ago and it was so nice to talk with him again. My children loved him. We are so thankful for his love and attention in our childrens behalf. My son went to him for his pre-college exam at age seventeen. He hated having to change doctors. Our prayers and blessings are with the family. You are so fortune to had a father that served his fellowman as he did. We will always be greatful for Dr. Penn.
He was my pediatrician as well as my brothers. He was a awesome doctor and we remained in contact with him. He will be missed greatly!!
My thoughts and prayers to the family. Dr Penn was my pediatrician as a child and also my son's pediatrician for a few years prior to his retiring. He was a good person.
I was one of his very first patients 58 years ago. He not only was my pediatrician, but both of my boys. Apart from my family there is no one I have ever loved more than Dr. Penn. God has a special place for him in eternity I am sure!
I was just thinking about Dr. Penn the other day and the many years that he doctored our children. He was a wonderful, wonderful doctor! We are so sorry to hear of his passing. Our prayers go out to the entire family. God Bless.
Sharon and I were very sorry to hear of Dennis's passing.He wa a wonderful Christian influencing me to join Bible Study Fellowship and to become a Stephen Minister.Oue deepest sympathy to the family.
God Bless you and your family at this time of grief. He was a great person to know and always had a kind word to say.
Dear Penn family, I am so saddened to hear of your loss. Dr. Penn was always one of my favorite dads as Holly, myself and our friends navigated our teen years. Prayers of comfort for all of you during this difficult time. Love, Melanie Newsome Stutenroth
