Daniel Lee Lazenberry 1933-2017
Daniel Lee Lazenberry passed away at home at the age of 83 on June 23, 2017 in Friendswood, TX. Daniel was born on September 16, 1933 in El Paso, TX to parents Robert G. and Vera M. (Hawkins) Lazenberry. He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Carol Summers Lazenberry; his daughters, Margaret C. Lazenberry, Charlotte Brohi, Jacqueline McDonald, and Susan Magers; son, Hugh Lazenberry; daughter in law, Lisa Lazenberry; son in laws, Al Brohi and James McDonald; 12 grandchildren and six great grandchildren; many nieces and nephews. His son, Daniel Lee Lazenberry, Jr. preceded him in death.
Daniel proudly served his country with full military honors in the United States Army, serving in Korea. He was an El Paso police officer for ten years, followed by Seminary Theological School in New Orleans, LA. However, he discovered his true passion was for teaching. After receiving his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Texas at El Paso, he moved his growing family to Houston, TX in 1970 and began his distinguished career with the Houston Independent School District serving for more than 32 years, of which 23 years were with The High School for Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice. He was most proud that he served his students in the same classroom and with the same principal for all 23 years. Daniel retired from teaching in 2001.
He was passionate about the poems and songs of praise he penned over the years and about the numerous articles he wrote for The El Paso Times. He was a self-taught musician who shared with his children the sounds of his guitar and hymn singing at bedtime. After spending the last 40 years writing about his passion for Jesus Christ, he happily completed his manuscript, The Barricades to Paradise: The Devil’s Siegfried Line, just two weeks before his passing.
