Carlos Edgar Pennington, of Paris, departed this life on Monday, July 29, 2019, at the Dover Manor Nursing Home, having attained the age of 80 years. Carlos was born on January 24, 1939 in Ashland, Kentucky, the son of Clyde E. and Eva Thompson Pennington.

He was the retired Owner of CE Pennington Co., a Kentucky Colonel, and long-time member and deacon of the First Baptist Church in Paris.
Carlos was a builder. He spent his life not only building structures, but building relationships with the people in his life. He was a mentor and a friend. He loved his wife and family with great passion; loved to snow ski and watch sunsets from his sailboat; and “Grandy” as his grandkids knew him, expressed his faith by loving those around him.
Carlos is survived by his wife, Diane Shipwash Pennington, two sons, James Pennington and wife Beth, Josh Pennington and wife Maria, and a daughter, Shawn Wrenn and husband Gary. Also surviving are eight grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

My condolences to Diane and the rest of the family.
I met Carlos on trips to Tennessee with the Primetimers from First Baptist.
He was a sweet, friendly, funny man with a big smile on his face.
I am so sorry for your loss.

I first met Carlos in the late 80’s and fell in love with him and his family. Throughout the years I became very close to Carlos and will miss him. I do believe heaven became a little better when Carlos changed his residency to Glory Ave! My prayers for all the family and friends!🙏
