Sir Denis Thatcher
Major Sir Denis Thatcher, Baronet (10 May 1915 - 26 June 2003) was a British businessman and the husband of Margaret Thatcher; he was born in London. The pinnacle of his business career was his service as chairman of Burmah Oil. Never one to hog the limelight in the face of his far more famous and powerful wife, he was often satirized (on the puppet show Spitting Image, for example), as being a bit too fond of the bottle. He was a qualified rugby referee. He was divorced prior to his marriage to Margaret. He and Margaret were married from 1951 until his death. They had twins, Mark and Carol, in 1953. He died of pancreatic cancer, in London, aged 88.
