June 28, 1966 – February 23, 2014
With great remorse, we announce the passing of our Son, Brother, Uncle.
Serafin or "Prieto" as we all knew him was born to Serafin Sr. and Elvira Alamillo on june 28th 1966 in the town of Cueva Grande, Valparaiso , Zacatecas.
He spent his childhood years there helping raise cattle and tend to the ranch life, spending his time with his siblings and cousins, during the summer months his whole family would go and live in "el rancho de aguas"
Prieto was a troublemaker and would always play practical jokes on his friends.
At the age of twelve, he came to the U.S. with his parents and 8 siblings. He started attending Haydock jr high, and eventually Channel Islands. During these years, he proved to be a handful getting into trouble at home and with the law. He also developed a good relationship with his cousins who were already living in the States.
At 18, he started working in Saticoy Lemon Association on various plants throughout the county. He gave 13 years of service to that company. Afterwards He decided to try his hand in the Laborers union, putting in another ten years of work through this organization.
In the early 90's he attended an evangelical church meeting, where he heard the Gospel preached for the first time. Soon after he decided to give his life to Jesus, this led to a love for the scriptures. We often found him memorizing and reciting paragraphs from the bible. He also enjoyed studying books on philosophy and always welcomed a conversation with people from other faiths.
Prieto was a man of habit and always kept his word, his devotion to God and to his church where unmatched, for years he would get up at 5:00am to go and open the church for prayer gatherings. He was always there to help his church by selling flowers for Mothers and Valentine's Day. He was a man of God who would worship his Lord early in the mornings through Hymns and Prayers
Every year he looked forward to his trip to Guadalajara for an annual church campaign.
Prieto was heavily involved with his family. He enjoyed breaking bread with his siblings and parents. He loved to coordinate the meal for each potluck. In addition, whenever there was a party at the ranch; he was always there to help set up. Although he tried hard to hide it, he was a very thoughtful and generous man with his family; he was always concerned if someone in our house fell ill.
Prieto loved watching professional football and soccer, and enjoyed his hometown music "Tamborazo" he also loved to hear and watch Antonio Aguilar songs and movies.

Our brother will be greatly missed; he leaves behind one grandfather, two loving parents, nine siblings, twenty-one nephews and nieces, and 5 grand nephews and nieces. And a innumerable amount of cousins and Brothers in the Faith
He leaves us a legacy of a fighter, having battled Life's challenges with stride.
He never stopped reaching to Heaven from where his help comes from. Prieto fought the good fight. He kept the faith. Finally there is laid up for him the crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous Judge, will give him on that day, and not to him only but also to all who have loved Jesus appearing.
Visitation will be held at Funeraria Del Angel Conrad-Carroll Chapel, Saturday March 1, 2014 from 3:00p.m. to 9:00p.m., & Sunday, March 2, 2014 from 3:00p.m. to 9:00p.m. with recitation of the Rosary at 7:00p.m. Mass of Christian burial will be held on Monday March 3, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, 500 Juanita Ave., Oxnard, CA. Burial will follow at Ivy Lawn Memorial Park, 5400 Valentine Road, Ventura, CA
