Dallas, TX

Miles Lewis Pennella, a longtime resident of Dallas, TX and Dover, DE died peacefully on January 16, 2016 in his home.

He is survived by his twin brother Anthony Pennella, and sister Laura Pennella Greene, brother-in-law Dave, nephew and niece Daniel and Elizabeth, and cousins Rosemary Pennella, Greg Dowden, Stacy Hare, Scott Dowden, Holly Everson. He was preceded in death by his mother the Honorable Agnes Pennella and father Col. Anthony Pennella. Miles lived a very full and colorful life. Growing up, he was considered a military brat living on various Air Force bases with his family. In his high school years in Illinois, Miles played football for the Mascoutah Indians. Miles went on to study at the University of Arkansas. It was there that he met some of his lifelong friends known as the "Pomfret Gang". Miles spent the next 30 years attending Arkansas football games with this group of friends. After college, Miles moved to Dallas where he spent his adult life. Part of Miles' legacy and one of his greatest accomplishments was bringing authentic Neapolitan Italian pizza to Dallas through the opening of his locally and nationally recognized restaurant company- "Campania Pizza and More". Miles will always be remembered for the love he had for his family and as a person who always made people around him feel special. Loyal brother, Restaurateur, Razorback, and Mascoutah Indian rest in peace.
