Mr. Baldemar Rush Pena entered the gates of heaven unexpectedly in his residence on the evening of November6, 2020 in Greeley, Colorado at the age of 42.
Rush is survived by his beloved mother Nelda G. Pena of Falfurrias, Texas; his loving wife Sylvia Pena (38) of Greeley, Colorado (Hometown: Falfurrias, Texas); six children Derrick J. Garcia (20) of McAllen, Texas; Caleb J. Garcia (18) of Greeley, Colorado; Devon Pena Garcia (15) of Greeley, Colorado; Starla Pena(16) of Corpus Christi, Texas; Skyla Pena(19) of Corpus Christi, Texas who is also the mother of his first grandson; Christian Rush Pena of Del Rio, Texas; two brothers Robert(Roxanne)Pena(38) of Kingsville, Texas who are the parents of his nephew Dylan Trevino(20) of Kingsville, Texas and his niece Kassidy Pena(15) of Kingsville, Texas; Tommy Pena (21) of Falfurrias, Texas. Rush had numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and an extremely large extended family as well.
Rush was born on October 2, 1978 in Falfurrias, Texas to Roberto and Nelda Pena. He was a student of the Falfurrias High School Class of 1997. Rush lived his life as big as a solar flare and had a passion and love for the beach and ocean, everyone who knew him would agree. He lived in Corpus, Christi, Texas where he worked for Robstown Processing Facility located in Robstown, Texas. He was always eager to help out whoever, whenever and however he could. Over the years he received certifications for NCCER, OSHA, HVAC in which he was extremely proud. Over a span of 28 years living in South Texas he touched so many lives and met so many people, he was known to be very outgoing, charismatic, and humble, he believed in God and that God’s plan meant that everyone had a purpose in life. On February 9, 2020 he rekindled an unexpected love story when he met his soulmate and his wife Sylvia B. Pena of Greeley, Colorado who also grew up in Falfurrias, Texas. He then decided to relocate to Greeley, Colorado to accept the challenge of being a father and husband when he legally married Sylvia on April 17, 2020 in Greeley, Colorado. He lived with such a lust for life and set about fulfilling his duty and providing for his family as best he could. His family remembers him as a very clean, hard-working, ambitious, driven, empathetic, compassionate, humble, and an always on the go father who encouraged them to pursue their goals. Rush was accomplished in cabinetry knowledge and some carpentry as well along with multiple skills in other numerous trades. Rush was known to be an individual with a charismatic and energetic personality, someone you'd definitely remember once you had the opportunity of meeting him.
Rush was very adimit on living life to the fullest and never taking a single adventure for granted. Some of his favorite pastimes were walking on the beach enjoying the sounds and the smells of the ocean, watching and capturing sunrises and sunsets, bringing smiles to the faces of his friends and family on any occasion that would permit, he loved to cook and bar-b-quing on the grill was one thing he absolutely excelled at (he was our GRILL MASTER). He was such a phenomenal person with a passion for life and a set of dimples that could stop anyone in their tracks, but it truly was his genuine compassion and empathy towards others that captivated anyone and always allowed him to meet so many people and be such an enormous social person. He loved to be surrounded by crowds of people and he always had a way of bringing a smile to anyone’s face, he had a knack for always seeking out people who were struggling in life for whatever reason and completely changing their perspective on life in a manner of minutes either by just being an ear to listen or by talking to them about how he overcame his trials and tribulations in life accompanied by an explosive witty humor. Rush absolutely and firmly believed family was everything, being in the presence of his family and friends always brought a smile to his face and so much joy he would light up as bright as a solar flare. He adored cooking on the grill, reminiscing and hanging out telling stories and all his adventures while quenching his thirst with a few or more ice cold BUDWEISERS in which he stated was good for the soul just like family was. Most that knew him had already prepared themselves because they knew by the end of any gathering most of them if not all of them definitely knew they'd up on their knees and more than likely heading home suffering from sore cheek bones and ribs from all the laughs, jokes, stories and adventures he had to share. He was active and very dedicated to his faith and very often spoke of his trials and tribulations he’d endured and how he’d overcome them through his faith and praised God and prayed daily for guidance and to give thanks for all he was blessed with and the strength to overcome whatever his journey in life may bring him in the future.
The Garcia/Pena family has decided on cremation and they do apologize for any inconveniences that this may cause anyone who knew Rush. On their behalf we are asking you to be patient in this difficult time of grieving.
The Garcia/Pena family has set up a memorial wall and would absolutely love it if anyone and everyone who had the opportunity of meeting Baldemar Rush Pena. If you would like to share stories to help keep his memory alive and celebrate his life and to bring some comfort to his loved ones in this most difficult time feel free to add stories, photos, condolences, or just memories of Rush so he will always be remembered as a loving son, dedicated father, driven brother, outgoing nephew, and a dear friend. Baldemar Rush Pena may have lived 42 short years and will be dearly missed by many, but he touched so many lives and left so many memories behind with all he met that his life will be remembered and celebrated for decades to come.
Condolences for the Garcia/Pena family and all his loved ones can be shared and posted on his memorial wall at under the obituary for Baldemar Rush Pena. The Garcia/Pena family would also like to thank the paramedic, coroner, and medical staff, the Greeley Fire Department, the Greeley Police Department, the Greeley Family Advocates and everyone else for their efforts, empathy, compassion, and all their dedication they showed to the Garcia/Pena family at this time.
