Denny Peel left this earth on September 29, 2018. He was a San Antonio hometown boy, the youngest of four sons born to Velma and Clifford DeWitt Peel. Denny leaves his wife Lizanne, son Garrett and wife
September 29, 2018
Mandie, son John Blake and wife Vanessa, and daughter Kellyn and husband Keith Wilks. He was crazy over his grandchildren, and he would be especially mad that he had to leave them so soon. Denny and his brothers, Larry, Tom and Terry, grew up on the Southside and were all proud Highland Owls.
Denny attended Howard Payne University on a football scholarship beginning in 1971, where he played quarterback under Head Coach Dean Slayton. Coach Slayton became Denny’s father in law in 1995, and he was loved by the entire Slayton family. Denny was a football coach in the San Antonio Independent School District for most of his career, with many of those years as Head Football Coach at Fox Tech High School. After he retired from SAISD, he returned to coaching as Head Football Coach with San Antonio Christian School.
Denny was a unique soul with a big heart of love not only for his children and grandchildren, brothers, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends, but his coworkers, players, students and neighbors. While we grieve over losing him and will never stop missing him, we can be sure that we are better people for having loved and been loved by Denny Peel.
