Garth Charles Denyer, born December 29, 1946 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, passed away peacefully on November 12, 2020 in the Woodlands, Texas. Garth received his M.D. degree from The University of Cape Town. Shortly thereafter, Garth left South Africa for England, residing in Portsmouth, a port city on England’s Southern Coast. Garth and his growing family, which now included four sons and a daughter, departed England for Canada, taking up residence in Regina and Saskatoon, two cities in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.

After two years in Canada, Garth and his family departed for the United States, taking up residence first in tiny Waynoka, Oklahoma (population, 935), and then to Clinton, Oklahoma. As a practicing physician, Dr. Denyer was a do-it-all, “country doctor”, a long lost art where an MD in rural areas of the country was asked to treat patients with a wide-range of maladies. Those were the days when specialists in the medical field were rare, and even rarer in the sparse counties of Northwestern Oklahoma.

After three years in Oklahoma, Dr. Denyer departed for the Lone Star State in August, 1981, choosing the Woodlands, TX as his forever home for his growing family, which included five sons and one daughter. The Denyer “around the world tour” continued once again, as the entire family loaded up into the blue and white Ford Econoline fleet van, leaving the Sooner State for the suburbs of North Houston. Dr. Denyer established the Oaks Medical Center, a primary care practice that grew to become one of the area’s most well-known and successful medical facilities in the Spring/Woodlands area. Dr. Denyer loved his patients and they loved him - immensely.

But more than a doctor, Garth Denyer was a caring man, an individual who treated thousands of patients over his four-decade practice with the utmost professionalism and very best medical advice. And then there were the countless patients, many with dire financial conditions, that desperately needed medical care. Time and time again, Dr. Denyer treated them free of charge. As he saw it, giving back to those in need to the very community he lived in was a worthy and just cause. Dr. Denyer would often be found on the sidelines of McCullough High School Friday night football games as one of the team doctors, offering up medical support when needed. And who can forget the free physical exams he provided to coach Dan Green’s cross country runners over the years.

Life was busy with six children, but he still found time to hit the waters of Lake Conroe and Corpus Christi for windsurfing, one of his true passions. He also loved animals, as he’d be the first to tell you that Sandor and Amira – his beloved Doberman Pinschers – and his African Grey Parrot – Koos – were his dear children, the very fabric of his family.

Dr. Denyer had an immense appreciation for the advancements of medicine, which resulted in what one would call an almost second career as a physician; the opening of North Houston’s Cenegenics practice. There, with the love of his life Iryna, he helped transform patients’ lives, giving them hope and optimism when most conventional remedies, diets, and exercise regimes fell short. His passion was medicine, yet through it all, he never forgot the importance of his family. His true love were his six children, five of which are still on this earth today, to which they are forever grateful for his presence in their lives.

Dr. Denyer is preceded in death by his father, Godfrey Herman Denyer, and his mother, Elititia Francis Denyer, his son Jarrod D Denyer and stepson Dennis. He is survived by his wife Iryna Voyutska, sons Robert [wife Margaret], Charles [wife Megan], Gareth, Anthony [wife Korri], daughter Britt, 11 grandchildren, and three of his siblings, Ronald Denyer, Renay Sack, and Sandy Smee.

It is hard to believe the Doctor is gone, I still cannot accept it.

He was a tower of strength in our lives, never more than a prompt phone call away, always there for us with advice, encouragement and compassion, not to mention his keen sense of humor, so uncommon these days. He was the life example to aspire to.

A great man came to this country and now he walks with God.

My deepest sympathies to Dr. Denyer's family and Clinic. Dr. Denyer was a great doctor, who always made time to talk about about life, and was passionate about health and healthcare, and truly made a difference in my life and those that knew him. He had a unique honesty and concern for others that is almost unheard of these days.

He was a true advocate for his patients, and always wanted the very best for their life, their health and well being.

This is a deep loss, and I hope that peace comes to the family during this time of grieving. Please know how much he meant to our family and that our prayers are with you now.

Best regards
Stephen & Morgan Thompson

I got my first job while I was a senior in high school (July 2001) with Dr. Denyer and Dr. Cary at the Oaks Medical Center. I worked with them until February 2008, alongside my Mom, Tommie Neuner. I gained a second family at OMC — a direct result of how wonderful and loving they were, not only to staff, but to their patients as well. “Dr. D”, as we lovingly called him, was always asking me if I had a boyfriend and telling me that I should never get married, lol. One of my favorite memories include his epic Christmas parties, where he’d always have my Dad bartend for him. It was always such a fun time with friends turned family.

What a heavy loss to this world during these already challenging times. My Mom and I send our deepest condolences to the Denyer family.

Dr. Denver was such a caring person. His wealth of experience was very reassuring when he told me what really impacts your health. He helped me improve my blood pressure, lose weight and reach personal goals I did not think were possible. I will miss our conversations. He was very candid and told it the way it is. Although very serious when discussing health matters he was funny and easy to talk to. I will miss him and glad I was one of his patients.
R.I.P. Dr. Denyer!
