He was born in the village of Zhuma-Demirhisarsko to a poor village
family. Seeing the hardships of his parents and those on his own shoulders,
he joined the progressive movement of Greece and became a member of
the CPG and a partisan. Because of his bravery and cleverness he became
an officer of DAG. He worked as a commissar in the villages and towns
and he completed all of the missions allocated to him by the party with
decisiveness and bravery.
He was sent with a special mission to the village of Haznatar (Hrisi
Korifi) and was uncovered by the monarcho- fascist forces and was surrounded
in a house. The shooting started. Two of his comrades managed to get
out of the line of fire. In trying to leap out of a window, Pena aimed
at the monarcho-fascists with hand grenades and his machine gun; he
was riddled with enemy bullets. He fell as a loyal son and brave hero
of the people.
