Jay Edward Denbow

Texas man grew up in Grove City, was IUP grad

LEAGUE CITY, Texas — Jay Edward Denbow passed away peacefully Thursday, March 27, 2014, in his League City home, surrounded by his wife and children, after a long battle with cancer. He was 51.

Jay was born June 16, 1962, in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, to Alfred Leroy and Jean Lucille Denbow and grew up in Grove City. He was a beloved son, brother, husband and father who lived life to its fullest.

Jay enjoyed playing golf and in his early years, playing softball.

Jay loved volunteering his time to the Clear Springs Charger Football Team, as part of the Tunnel Crew.

Jay’s fondest memories were spent with his family vacationing at Walt Disney World in Florida and sharing his infamous jokes with anyone and everyone.

Two of Jay’s greatest accomplishments of being a dad were watching his son play football and being the ultimate cheer dad.

Jay graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a bachelor’s degree in criminology. Soon after, he was recruited by the Texas Department of Corrections as a prison guard. He was also a probation officer in Matagorda and Galveston counties and worked as an AT&T phone line technician, where he was promoted to a supervisor.

Jay furthered his career as a phone line inspector with Byers Engineering.

In his spare time, he enjoyed delivering pizza for Papa John’s and meeting new patrons on his delivery routes.

Jay was a member of the IUP Alumni Association, the St. Mary’s congregation, the Clear Springs Charger Football and Cheer boosters and the AT&T Pioneers.

Jay was preceded in death by his parents and is survived by: his wife of 19è years, Sandra Lynn Moreno Denbow; his two children, daughter Jaelyn Nicol, and son Zachary Jay; sister, Nancy Bloom and her husband Russ; brothers, Harold Denbow and his wife Shawnee of Grove City, and James Denbow and his wife Linda; his mother- and father-in-law, Rosie and Oscar Moreno; sisters-in-law, Debbie Sanchez and her husband Ramiro, Melissa Ramirez and her husband David, and Mary Jo Moreno and her husband Chris; and numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives.

Honorary pallbearers are his brothers Harold and James Denbow; brothers-in-law Ramiro Sanchez, David Ramirez and Chris Maldonado; nephews Brandyn Sanchez, Matthew Ramirez, James Wisner and Brian Strawn, Jared Denbow, Kent Denbow and James Denbow Jr.
