Obituary for Danny Spear

November 5, 1956 - November 16, 2018
San Antonio, Texas | Age 62


Danny Spear was born on November 5, 1956, San Antonio, TX, and passed away peacefully at home on Friday, November 16th, 2018 surrounded by good friends and his beloved pets. He was the proud owner of Land of Was Antiques. His mother Helen Spear founded Land of Was over 70 years ago. Danny and his sister Donna continued his mother's legacy with great passion. The shop was always full of friends who loved discussing antiques, design, and life itself. Danny had an extensive proclivity towards decorating; his ideas were always on point and much appreciated. Most recently, he collaborated in the renovation of the lobby of the St. Anthony Hotel. He decorated many fiesta floats and helped for many years with the ideas and costumes for the Cornyation. Danny was a wonderful cook, a talented designer and his love of animals led to dozens of cats and dogs being rescued. Danny had a great appreciation for beautiful things, and he loved to shop! Many of his hobbies also included travel, dancing, bow-ties, gardening, and spending time with as many friends as possible. Everyone who knew Danny, loved him for his quick wit and great sense of humor. He loved the delivery of a good joke to make others laugh. His absence will affect all who knew him. Few people had knowledge about antiques as he did. He was a great antiques dealer, as well as a fair one. The antique world, both dealers and clients, will miss him deeply.
Danny is preceded in death by his parents, Helen and Oscar Spear, and his sister, Donna Spear. A special thank you goes out to those who helped care for Danny.
