Michael Henry “Delano Mike” Pena, a well known member of the Hells Angels motorcycle Club, was buried Saturday, August 10 at the Greenlawn Southwest Mortuary Cemetery in Bakersfield.

He died July 17 on the southbound 405, the San Diego Freeway in Los Angeles. Pena was legally riding his motorcycle in the car pool lane near Victory Boulevard when he hit a Nissan pick-up truck that had stopped to use the lane as a breakdown lane after one of the trucks tires went flat. Pena was pronounced dead at the scene by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics.

Pena was born in Orange County, California and lived in Bakersfield. He was in the news recently because he was accused of murder in an alleged fight with two men reported to be associated with the Vagos Motorcycle outside a tattoo parlor near Bakersfield in May 2010. It was Pena’s only felony charge and he was acquitted. But Karl Hall, the prosecutor in the recent Ernesto Gonzalez murder trial, had told jurors the Bakersfield homicide was the motive for the homicide of Hells Angel Jeffrey Pettigrew in Reno in September 2011.

Most people knew Delano Mike Pena as a good hearted and generous man. The same week Pettigrew was shot, Pena organized a multi-club fund raiser for a ten-year-old girl named Zoe Whipple who suffered from kidney disease.

Delano Mike is survived by his father, Raul Felix of Delano, California; his mother Sylvia Brunelle of Orange City, Iowa; his sisters Melinda Pena, Lethesia Escalante, Cecilia Salazar and Elizabeth Felix; his brother Bubba Felix; and his children, Reyna Pena, Isaac Pena, Brandee Pena, Jacob Pena and Dominic Pena.

Delano Mike Pena turned forty-seven in May. He made his life matter. Many still weep for him.

    I agree with 10guage WTF my pops had something similar happen some years ago. A cops wife stoped in the middle of road to try and get in other lane my dad didnt have time to stop and slammed his knucklehead into her rear sending him flying over the hood. Needless to say she didnt have insurance and he got the ticket. Man that was a beautiful bike.

  29. FF Says:

    Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace
    Where there is hatred, let me sow love
    Where there is injury, pardon
    Where there is discord, harmony
    Where there is error, truth
    Where there is doubt, faith
    Where there is despair, hope
    Where there is darkness, light
    And where there is sadness, joy

    Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console
    To be understood as to understand
    To be loved as to love
    For it is in giving that we receive;It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

    Peace and Respect to all. And may this hatred and killing stop.
