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.
