Family of the Month – July 2022
Efrain and Lisa Ochoa
Efrain joined this Council in Nov 2001 and has become very active since his retirement from the City of Dallas – the water department, where he worked for 37 years. It seems like Efrain helps at nearly every activity of the Council – he’s a frequent participant in Knight Hands projects; he often works at the baseball concession stand, is a vital cog at fish fries and other cook-outs, and has moved up the ranks as an Officer of the Council and is now the Warden. As Warden, he sets up the meeting room, assures that Guards under his command check membership cards, and obtains and serves food snacks for our regular business meetings. Efrain and his wife Lisa were married by Fr. Joe at Holy Spirit in 1995. They are blessed with two boys – Carlos and Nicholas. Lisa is a Manager at the Home Depot in Waxahachie but also finds time to help at parish activities. Efrain and Lisa live in Red Oak where Efrain spends a lot of time in the backyard cooking – he’s a master smoker. Although their two boys are grown and gone from home, Efrain still volunteers at Boy Scouts events; oftentimes cooking.
