Efrain Hurtado, age 49, of Elgin, passed away on March 6, 2021. He was born January 13, 1972 in Mexico to his loving parents, Ismael Hurtado and Imelda Alvarado.
Efrain worked as a commercial painter for over 20 years. He was a hard worker who loved and supported his family well. He enjoyed getting together with friends and family, a beer in hand. And you could always tell if he’d had a little too much to drink because when he was drunk, he would speak English instead of Spanish!
Loved ones will remember Efrain as a kind and gentle man, friendly to all he met. He was always ready and willing to lend a helping hand when the need arose.
Efrain is survived by his wife, Alma Hurtado; and his three children, Alejandro, Esmeralda, and Efrain, Jr.
