Obituary of Richard Floyd Tena

On Sunday, May 30th, we sadly said good-bye to Richard Tena of Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Richard was a life-long resident of Alameda and will be remembered for many things including how he served his community; volunteering as a North Valley Optimist Club Member, a Big Brother in the Big Brother/ Big Sister Program, and a church catechist. Richard was above all else, a- loving- father, where his fatherly influence and love extended to many loved nieces and nephews.  He loved the Lord, his family, the outdoors, the Arts, and giving back to his community.   

He is preceded in death by his parents Robert and Viola Tena; siblings Bobby, Anet, Larry and David Tena; step- daughter Jovonne Gutierrez.   

Richard is survived, and greatly missed, by daughters, Kalandra and Jerett Saavedra, Victoria Tena and partner Ernest Gomez; step-daughter Lisa Ortiz and Kenneth Ortiz; grandchildren Eric-Anthony Pacheco and Amber, Elijah Pacheco,  Alyssa Pacheco and partner Carlos Silva, DeAndra and Cecelia Gutierrez, Joziah Ware, Olivia & Adrian Garcia, Adrian and Donovan Saavedra, Isaac Estrada & Judah Ortiz; brothers Robert Tena and Roque; and sister Roberta Tsutsumi.  

He would like to say to all his buds at the pubs… Catcha later!
