LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A member of Holiday World's Koch family has died.  Philip Koch owned and ran the Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort, which is right next to the famous southern Indiana amusement park.

He also opened the Santa Claus Christmas Store in 2009 and was responsible for its growth just a few years later.

The family tells us the 47-year-old suffered a heart attack last Monday while in Evansville.  He was hospitalized but passed away this morning surrounded by his family.
