Our deepest condolences to Aunt Gloria and cousins. We are so sorry to hear of Uncle Chuy's passing. He was such a good man. We loved him very much. We have so many memories of him and family. When we first bought our home, Uncle Chuy came over to help us. He put tile in our kitchen and porch. He loved helping the family and we will be forever greatful to him for his generosity. We will always remember him smiling and happy. He loved his family very much. We will miss you Uncle Chuy. To the family we are so sorry that we can not be there in person but our hearts are with you and we are praying that God give you strength and peace for your great loss.

Chuy Mena, mi tio y Compadre. My tia Gloria and Uncle Chuy are Baptismal God Parents to my son Andrew, mi tia and tio have always been very charitable, always ready with a helping hand. Humble people, always ready to be of service, an example to all. Quite the character, very funny relaying life’s experiences, gentle but stern. When I was a young boy he took me fishing for catfish at the canal and to the showers at Armijo Park. I returned from Vietnam very troubled and he listened and gave me sound advise. Remember that hardships make you stronger, if you have never had bad days there will never be accomplishment. His favorite saying “old too soon, smart too late.” Adios tio, you will always be in my thoughts and prayers, pray for me, David.

We are very saddened by my uncles passing.My uncle was the Mena family historian so many, many history lessons were learned by all his Mena family. Will be greatly missed. My uncle loved spending time with his three sisters, Rafaela M. Flores, Mary Garcia (Martin) and Amelia Mena, In addition to his three sisters my uncle has his only brother Gene Mena (Velia). His six brothers - Candelario, Roberto, Nemesio, Jose, and Enrique will welcome him in Heaven. Our deepest condolences to our Aunt Gloria, cousins Letty, Patsy, Julie, Ralph, George and Gregory. Rest in peace and perpetual light shine upon you.
