He always put his family first. Serafin was a die-hard Chicago Cubs and Bears fan. He loved outdoor activities with his family and dogs, “Nala” and “Loki”. Serafin worked at Blessey Marine Services as a Boat Captain for 17 years where he made many life-long friends who became family. He took great pride in his work and the appearance of his boat “MV Dane F. Morgan”. He loved taking vacations with his family and absolutely loved visiting New Orleans for the food and music.
