I have always been fascinated with family crests. They are symbols that represent a family name and what they stand for. I asked a friend of mine to create/develop a crest for Forza Powerlifting Club. The more I thought about it, the crest would not only represent my club, but my family as well. Over the years I have tried to research as to whether or not the 'Infurna' name had a crest, or something along those lines. I have yet to find something. A quick internet search of the name 'Infurna' will bring about some people with the last name scattered across the United States and Italy. Besides my uncle, there are not that many people with the last name Infurna. There is a family in the Niagara Falls area that has the same last name. There are also some people in Florida and the Midwest. Not that many at all.
The first thought of creating a family crest came in elementary school. I do not recall the grade exactly, but my teacher assigned us a project to detail our family history, and to include a crest if one was available. Luckily for me, my maternal grandfather was able to give names as far back as the 1800's. You may be thinking maternal grandfather...My parents were born in a small farming village on the south coast of Sicily. Everyone knew everyone, and he lived their about forty years or so before moving to America. He was a very intelligent and respected man. This is not an 'official' family name crest as of yet. It will represent Forza Powerlifting Club.
Dr. Infurna is an active powerlifter and thrower. He has recently shifted his focus to training for Triathlon races. His next race is the Rochester Sprint Triathlon at the end of August, 2019.
