Eduardo “Wardy” Samuel Peña was suddenly taken on October 6, 2018. He was born to Emma Onsurez & Michael Peña on April 29, 1991 in Safford, Arizona.
Wardy was a lifelong resident of Safford and attended grade school through high school in Safford, graduating from Safford High School. He enjoyed sports, music, dancing and playing with his nieces & nephews. He had a gentle and patient way with babies and always had a smile on his face and a hug for those he loved.
He was happy when he was buying clothes and was always into the latest fashion. Wardy didn’t like getting dirty, but he would if you asked him. He would often reminisce of being outdoors with his step-dad and brothers and how much fun they had together. He loved food and was fortunate enough to have a mom who could cook! Every year he requested a huge fruit salad from his God-mother and ended up eating half of it!
Wardy was funny and loved to make others laugh… he would dance, take off his shirt and his family would tease him about his bones. To those who knew his, he was full of love.
He is survived by his mother & step-father, Sonny & Emma Onsurez, his father Michael Peña, his brothers; Michael, Daniel & Joey Peña and his sister Keena Franco, 11 nieces & nephews and 1 great-nephew.
Wardy is preceded in death by his grandmother Eloise Bencomo.
