Warren Pena of West Falmouth died August 21 after a five-year battle with cancer. He was 67.
He was the son of Carlo Pena and Caroline Pena.
Mr. Pena worked as a heavy equipment operator for the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 4 in Boston for 22 years. He retired in 2017.
A golfer, he played the game as much as possible while he was physically able to do so. He was an accomplished athlete on the football field and on the track. During high school, he scored more than 200 points on the gridiron, and has since been inducted into the Falmouth Athletic Hall of Fame, which was created in 1998 to honor athletes and coaches—from both Falmouth High School and the former Lawrence High School—whose athletic contributions have left a positive mark on the town.
While furthering his education at Springfield College, Mr. Pena also played football there.
Mr. Pena also had entered and won a number of dance competitions.
