Denayli Brea-Awn Best was born to Lavina (Liz) Best and DaMarcus Best on July 9, 2001, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She was called to heaven’s gates on Thursday, April 11, 2024.

She attended Oklahoma City Public Schools and Mid-Del Public Schools. She graduated from Midwest City High School in 2019

She accepted Christ in her youth and was active primarily in three churches: First Southern Baptist Church (Oklahoma City,OK), People’s Church (Midwest City,OK) and The Church of the Living God #221(Oklahoma City,OK).

She had taken an interest in sewing/crocheting, but absolutely loved to draw, sing and dance. She had a special passion for animals and was considering becoming a veterinarian. She was a true friend to many and had a wonderful personality. Her smile and laugh brought joy to those that truly knew her.

She met the love of her life, Paul Biscontin in 2020 and was planning to have a family with him. They became foster parents to her niece, Samareyea Currie and were beginning the process of adoption. Their union brought forth a son, King-Leo Honovi Best, as her greatest joy was to be a mother.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Charles Culbreath(OKC) and Claudette Williams (Denton, TX) and Paternal grandmother, Dianne Delaney – Jones.

She leaves to cherish her memory: husband, Paul Biscontin; son, King-Leo Honovi Best; foster daughter/niece, Samareyea Currie; great grandmother, Hattie Delaney (Memphis, TN); grandparents, Charles E Best and Emma J Best(Memphis); grandfather, Roy G Jones(Memphis); mother, Lavina Best(OKC); father, DaMarcus Best(MWC); stepmother, Cheryl Lyons(MWC); two brothers, Anthony Brown (MWC) and Nathaniel Bullock(Miami, FL); three sisters, Wynter Neel(OKC), Jerrica Moore (OKC), and Aryawna Best(MWC); stepsister, Deloris Jones(OKC); two adopted sisters Antoinette and Tiffany Clark(MWC); multiple in-laws, great aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, a host of cousins and friends.
