Sofronio was born on January 28, 1950, to Sofronio and Lydia Galapon. On August 16, 1975, he married the love of his life, Cristina. They had three children together and were devoted to each other 'til his last day.

Sofronio proudly started his United States Military career in 1972. His service allowed him and his family to travel across the United States (from Alaska to California to Massachusetts to Florida). He also had the opportunity to travel across Europe (from England to Germany to Italy). He retired from the military in 1992. Sofronio continued his Federal service by working for the United States Postal Service in 1993 'til he retired for a 2nd time in 2018.
