Jose S. Cordova

Jose Cordova

Jose S. Cordova went home to be with Our Lord on March 21, 2014 in Houston, TX. He was born on April 22, 1951, in Villa Lopez, Chihuahua, Mexico. 

He is preceded by his parents, Ramon and Constantina Cordova-Vega; and mother-in-law, Leonor Flores, who loved him like a son. 

Jose is survived by his wife Sara; sons, Jose Cordova and wife Beatrice, and Erik Cordova; daughter, Sara Bowshewicz and husband Anthony; grandsons, Joaquin Cordova, Aron Bowshewicz and Matthew Bowshewicz; siblings, Manuela, Ramona, Laurencio, Julia, Susano, Obdulia, Isabel, Enrique and Julian. 

Jose had a larger than life, infectious personality, and brought joy to the lives of many. He never met a stranger and brought laughter to all those around him. He was an instant member of any family and he was always willing to lend a hand in any situation and lead the effort if needed.  A kid at heart, it’s no surprise that Jose was adored by his grandsons. He wasted little time worrying about the hardships of life and made the best of every situation.

Jose took tremendous pride in his work and was well-respected by his co-workers.He has left his mark all over the United States, as he traveled for many years working as a Glazer building skyscrapers. Jose will be greatly missed by his family and friends; however there is comfort in the many memories that he leaves behind.
