Family History Salvador Zapien

For many years I wondered where the name came from and my family would not tell me much. My father was born July 29, 1929. The first son of Salvador Zapien. Salvador Zapien was married to my grandmother. I have the proof of an old marriage certificate and also a birth certificate of my father. Shortly after the birth of my father, Salvador Zapien went back to Mexico. I have no idea where. My grandmother stayed in Lorraine, Ohio. A relative told me in 1974 Salvador Zapien traveled from Mexico to the US to see my dad. My dad refused the visit. My father was 45 years old at the time and mad that the man never came back into his life. My father is still alive and is 81 years old. Now he wonders where he came from and who his family is, whether we have any family or cousins, anything. Is the name Zapien Italian or Mexican and is there anyone out there that knows a Salvador Zapien?
At 14 my father was adopted and his new name is now Inchaurregui.
