Raul Pena Sr., passed away on Sunday, January 3, 2021, at the age of 75 in San Diego, Texas.
Raul was a hard working man who provided for his family and made sure they had everything they needed. He was an oilfield crew supervisor for Rex Maintenance Services of Freer, Texas and was also a ranch hand for Welder Ranch for many years. He had a nice sense of humor, enjoyed BBQueing, music, and dancing. He was the best father any child could ask for; he guided and advised us to be hardworking, respectable, and to keep our word of honor. Raul enjoyed gatherings with family and friends and he was a great cook. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him and loved him.
