We mournfully inform you that Efraim Rivera (age 71), our friend, confidante, and one of the first members of 70/Four70 MS Men’s Self-help Group, passed away on Tuesday, September 28, 2021.

There was a Celebration of Life on Monday, October 25, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. at Horan & McConaty Family Chapel, 11150 East Dartmouth Avenue in Aurora.  A graveside service was held with Military Honors on Monday, October 25, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. at Fort Logan National Cemetery, staging area “A,” 3698 South Sheridan Blvd. in Denver.

Efraim proudly served in the United States Army during the Vietnam War where he served with Honor and Distinction.

For years he also helped man the Group’s info table at Walk MS Denver.
