Leandro Pena

d. January 10, 2022

Leandro S. Pena, 40, passed away Monday, January 10, 2022 in Hammond, Louisiana. He was born January 16, 1981 in Springerville, Arizona, the son of Lorenzo B. Pena and Mary Lou Ramirez.

Leandro “Dro” was known as the fun guy; always making jokes, singing, showing off his crazy dance moves and doing anything just to make others laugh. He was so loving and caring; always willing to help those out in need.

The most important part of Leandro’s life was his family. He especially loved spending time with his kids and grandkids; from their everyday life to their cookouts and vacations, he made sure they knew he loved them and showed them a good time.

Aside from being a family man, Leandro was an extremely hard worker or as some would say, “The hardest working man, they ever met.” He also loved being out on his boat, fishing and jeeping.

Although Leandro had a profound amount of love for his home town in St. Johns, Arizona he became “one of the people” or as they call it a Louisianian. From the food, to being out on the water, to the Mardi Gras parades, he truly embraced Louisiana. As if the man wasn’t wonderful enough, the amount of love he had for his animals was truly unexplainable.

Leandro will be truly missed, but for us it’s not goodbye, it’s see you later, until we meet again.
