Corando Peña passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Sunday, January 29, 2023. He was born in Hebbronville, Texas, to Golfrey and Celestina (Mendez) Peña on June 5, 1953. He grew up in Hebbronville and the surrounding area with his 9 brothers and 1 sister, working on the family farm, having fun with cousins and neighborhood friends. Working as a migrant worker as a child into his teen years, went on to graduate from Hebbronville High School, where he developed lifelong friendships and an appreciation for learning. His childhood was an idyllic time in his life, which he recalled fondly.

He attended college in Corpus Christi, Texas where he learned many skills and an appreciation for life. He was a farmer/rancher, an art painter, a skilled welder, a craftsman of construction, a businessman, and many more other attributes during his being. He was extremely generous and always willing to provide a helping hand to anyone in need. A true chameleon in his creativity, he was also a proud father, grandfather, brother, uncle and a loyal friend to many.
