Resided in: Newark, California
Efrain (Fred) Servin Piña was born in Morelia, Michoacán Mexico on December 26, 1960 to parents Hector and Minerva Piña. Efrain grew up in Newark California and attended Newark Memorial high school, where he met and married his high school sweetheart, Berta Piña. They were married for 30 years and had two beautiful children Freddy Piña and Anita Nassar along with three precious grandchildren, Alyssa Moreno, Zenna Nassar and Ziad Nassar. Efrain loved his family unconditionally and was so very proud of his children. Efrain worked for Raychem Corp. for 28 years.
Efrain was very involved in his church and gave back to his community by helping feed the homeless in Fremont, Union City, Hayward, and Castro Valley. He also delivered food for needy families in Newark and Fremont and encouraged all people he encountered.
His devotion and firm belief in God supported him throughout his life and ultimately gave him peace. The Lord took him home on February 3, 2021 where he has reunited with his Father Hector Piña and Brothers Rick and Hector Piña Jr. It brings us much comfort knowing he will be watching over his family. Efrain was blessed to have spent his last days with his good friend Fairilla Turner.
Efrain is survived by his son Efrain Piña Jr. and his fiancé, Monet Borjon, his daughter Anita Nassar and her husband, Sadik Nassar, Berta Piña and grandchildren Alyssa Moreno, Zenna Nassar and Ziad Nassar.
Mother Minerva Piña, sisters Sylvia Kaufman and her husband Bob, Mary Piña and her husband Jose, Marina Rodriguez, Martha Garza and her husband Armando.
He will be dearly missed by his loved ones, who celebrate the fact that he is at peace with his Creator.
