Efren was born June 9, 1967, in San Pedro Escanela, Mexico to Carmen and Maria Cruz. As a young man he enjoyed playing sports, especially soccer and basketball. Efren was a family man and enjoyed cookouts and family functions. Efren was a hard and dedicated worker and was with JBS Swift for 12 years. His son Efren remembers how much his dad made his 15th birthday so special; after receiving a Crown Victoria, he felt very loved by his father. All four of Efren’s sons remember their dad as a laid back family man, and he would give the shirt off his back for any of them. Efren was preceded in death by his father, Carmen Cruz.
