Efrain Ochoa

Even during recent months when the pandemic has changed many aspects of parish and council life, Efrain Ochoa has managed to remain busy on behalf of the Knights of Columbus with his right hand filled with either a spatula or a power tool. Efrain was part of our cooking groups that visited St. Joseph’s residence home in Oak Cliff over Mother’s Day weekend and prepared cookout lunches for the Duncanville Police Department. He also pitched in during multiple Knight Hands projects in our community. Efrain joined the council in November 1999 and took his major degrees two months later. He and wife Lisa recently celebrated their silver anniversary. They have two sons: Carlos, 24, graduated from Texas A&M two years ago and Nicholas, 21, is scheduled to graduate from Texas Tech next May. The Ochoas live in Ovilla.
