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.
