Efrain Ozuna

Efrain Ozuna was born July 22, 1975, and was called to his eternal home on July 25, 2020. Affectionately known as "Buff" to his family and friends, Efrain was a devoted husband, father, brother, and son. A graduate of Taft High School, class of '93, Efrain worked as an Air Craft Mechanic AVIM Branch at the Corpus Christi Army Depot for the department of defense, taking over the post vacated by his father when he retired in 2007.

As a much loved public figure of the Taft community, Efrain often enjoyed bar-b-queing for his family and friends, and spending Sunday's watching football games with his father. He was a fan of the Dallas Cowboys, the Boston Redsox, and his beloved Florida Gators. Even more so, Efrain enjoyed nothing more than coaching the youth of Taft in football and baseball, serving as a past Vice-President of the Taft Little League and a coach for the Taft Youth Football Organization. As his kids grew, Efrain became a father-like figure to countless friends of his sons and daughter. He was a constant fixture at his sons' and daughter's games, often standing off to the side chatting and laughing with other parents and fans. His trademark laugh and smile will be remembered by his many friends and dear family.

He is preceded in death by grandparents Juan and Deanira Ozuna, and Jose and Jovita Encinia.

He is survived by his loving wife Jessica Schilling Ozuna of Taft; sons: Rhyan Justice Ozuna (Ilyse Dudley) of Corpus Christi, Oscar Manuel Ozuna, Efrain Eloy Ozuna, Christian Gabriel Ozuna, and Juan Jose Ozuna all of Taft; daughter: Rhyanna Marie Ozuna of Taft.

He is also survived by his parents: Manuel and Maria Ozuna of Taft; brother: Juan Judas Ozuna (Laura Delgado-Ozuna) of Calallen.

My friend, you will be missed. You have done so much for your family and still managed to help out the youth of Taft. You can not be replaced and you will be missed dearly by your family for sure but also the Taft community. I miss the time with you and your family at the Little league and beyond. One day Buff we will have some cold ones again my friend.
