Efren Padilla, father, brother, grandfather, great-grandfather, was dearly loved by his family and friends.
He will be greatly missed by his son, Rafael, “Papo”, his first-born and only son, who carries on his legacy of being a strong and loving man, and his two daughters: Susana and Annette, who cared and nurtured him unconditionally in ways only loving daughters could.
Eight grandchildren made Efren very proud (in order from oldest to youngest): Sully, Nana, Kiara, Yaisiel, Noel, Eric, Kenny, and Alan, each in their own special way.
Efren often expressed how blessed he felt to live a life so long that he got to meet and cherish his seven great-grandchildren: Natalie (11), Maria (4), Noelito (2), Adriel (4), Yael (1), Sebastian (9 months), and Melanie (5 months).
Efren, “Papi,” “Guelo,” was surrounded by family through his last moments and we fill our minds with wonderful memories during these moments of grief.
