Jose Maria "Pepe" Rendon

Jose Maria "Pepe" Rendon, 89, of Surprise, Arizona, passed away on January 21, 2024. He was born on January 6, 1935, in Tangier, Morocco. Pepe was a loving husband, father, and grandfather who will be deeply missed by his family and friends. He battled colon cancer for three years and succumbed to his illness.

Pepe had a diverse and successful career. He began as a shoe designer and salesperson, specializing in children's shoes in Morocco. He later worked as a warehouse employee and salesman for a furniture company in Nebraska before becoming the store manager for the same company in South Dakota from 1975 to 1980. In 1980, Pepe took the leap and became a business owner, running his own flooring and furniture store until 2002. Pepe was a local business owner in Green River, Wyoming.

Outside of work, Pepe had a passion for European soccer, travel, and spending time with his loved ones. He was known for his kind and generous nature, and his faith played the most important role in his life. Pepe was a devoted follower of the teachings of Jesus and found spiritual solace in worshiping in the comfort of his family's homes.

Pepe is survived by his beloved wife, Marilyn Rendon, their daughter Jennifer (Michael) Zmiewski, their son Luis (Taguhi) Rendon, his brother Martin Rendon, his sister Charo (John) Piles, three grandchildren, Duane and Orrin Zmiewski, and Narek Rendon, as well as several nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents, Martin Rendon Fernandez and Catalina Garcia de Quiros Berutti, his brother Pedro Rendon Garcia de Quiros, and his infant sister Guadalupe Rendon Garcia de Quiros.

He has been cremated and remains will be entered in Green River Cemetary. A memorial service will be held at the Golden Hour Senior Center in Green River on Saturday April 27th at 11 AM with a luncheon following.
