In Loving Memory

Sinforiano Reyna Godinez

August 22, 1940 – May 24, 2022

Sinforiano Reyna Godinez, Papa Sinfo, passed away peacefully in his home in Corona, California. He went to be with his Lord on Tuesday, May 24th, 2022, at the age of 81. He is survived by his loving wife Celia Reyna of fifty-nine years, his seven children: Filiberto, Esther, Moises, Beatriz, Minerva, Angelica, and Elizabeth. Lovingly remembered by his grandchildren: Filiberto Jr, Carolina, Sandra, Ruben, Diana, Moises, Santiago, Gary, Jessy, Bryan, Samantha, Karina, Brenda, Ivette, Michael, Jair, and Gissele. In addition to his two great-grandchildren: Evelyn and Diego.

Sinforiano was born on August 22th, 1940 in the municipality of Quechultenango, in the state of Guerrero, south-western Mexico. At the age of 21 he began working in the fields during the Bracero program, a U.S. contract labor program established during WWII. He faced many hardships working to provide a living for his family in Mexico. Even after moving to California, where he later received residency, many of his children stayed behind in his home country. Regardless of the hardships that his physical labor afflicted on his body, he remained an optimistic and resilient person. Sinforiano was known to be sincere, and he welcomed anyone into his home with kindness. In October 2020 he was diagnosed with stage four cancer, even after receiving the diagnosis and chemotherapy treatments he continued to stay strong and brave. His diagnosis did not halt his daily routine of attending to his garden nor did it stop him from giving all his love to his family. His memory and work philosophy lives on throughout his children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and future generations to come. He provided the American dream for us. For his hard work and dedication to his family we will be forever grateful.

En Memoria De

Sinforiano Reyna Godínez

Agosto 22, 1940 – Mayo 24, 2022

Sinforiano Reyna Godínez, Papá Sinfo, falleció en su casa en la cuidad de Corona California el día 24 de Mayo del 2022 a sus 81 años. Deja atrás a su señora esposa, Celia Reyna, después de compartir cincuenta y nueve años de matrimonio. A sus siete hijos: Filiberto, Esther, Moises, Beatriz, Minerva, Angélica, y Elizabeth. Será recordado con todo el cariño por sus nietos: Filiberto Jr, Carolina, Sandra, Ruben, Diana, Moises, Santiago, Gary, Jessy, Bryan, Samantha, Karina, Brenda, Ivette, Michael, Jair, y Gissele. Al igual por sus dos bisnietos Evelyn y Diego.

Sinforiano nació el 22 de Agosto de 1940 en el municipio de Quechultenango, en el estado de Guerrero, al suroeste de México. A la edad de 21 años, comenzó a trabajar en los campos durante el programa Bracero, un programa de trabajo por contrato de EE. UU. establecido durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Enfrentó muchas dificultades trabajando para mantener a su familia en México. Incluso después de mudarse a California, donde más tarde recibió la residencia, muchos de sus hijos se quedaron en su país de origen. Independientemente de las dificultades que su trabajo físico afligía a su cuerpo, seguía siendo una persona optimista y resistente. Sinforiano era conocido por ser sincero y recibía a cualquiera en su casa con amabilidad. En Octubre de 2020, le diagnosticaron cáncer en cuarta etapa, incluso después de recibir el diagnóstico y los tratamientos de quimioterapia, continuó manteniéndose fuerte y valiente con esas ganas de vivir que tanto le caracterizó. Su diagnóstico no detuvo su rutina diaria de cuidar su jardín ni le impidió dar todo su amor a su familia. Su memoria y filosofía de trabajo perdura en sus hijos, nietos, bisnietos y futuras generaciones. Él nos proporcionó el sueño Americano. Por todo su esfuerzo y dedicación le seremos eternamente agradecidos.
