    A man of honor, a man of integrity, a man who loved God, a man who loved his family, a man who cared, a man who loved life, a man who was never judgemental, a man who helped others in their time of need, this is the testimony and the legacy that Herman Cordova has left for us that honor him , this is my Dad!
    I love you Dad! I’ll always be grateful for the way you touched my life and for the unconditional love. Now is your time to rejoice in the presence of the Lord …

    Herman was a Christian man who shared his faith with those he Loved and with those who were in need. He was an inspiration to me because of his Faith. His strong faith influenced every aspect of his life and is his Testimony. Always kind, never judgemental of anyone. He Loved to play the guitar. He loved to ride his bike and go for long walks, always very conscientious of his health and his diet. He loved his family and was accepting of everyone. I feel privledged to have known such a gentleman and a kind soul. He will be missed, but remembered always.

      Mr. Cordova was my father’s friend and a perpetual source of strength and comfort when my father and I needed it most. In our darkest hours he was there with endless grace, a gentle hand, and words of encouragement. He poured love in to us whenever he could, bolstering my father’s faith in his final days. Even when I failed myself or could not live up to my own expectations Mr. Cordova told me my efforts did his heart good ~ and that he and God love me. I will cherish that memory of mercy and affirmation for the rest of my life. I’m so sad I missed his service, and a chance to honor his effervescent life. He never let me forget how much he loved you all, especially his Beloved Stella. I join you in your sorrow and hope you can feel the comfort I’m sending your way. Praying God’s grace with you all ~

    Dad was a very special man, and we are so thankful for the 38+years that he so lovingly shared with us. We appreciate how he loved and cared for Mom, she was foremost in his thoughts. His love for God and His Word was at the center of their marriage. He was very compassionate and generous with his love, his time, and resources. He showed concern for those around him including family, friends, neighbors, church family or someone at the grocery store. I heard him say many times β€œwe need to help people”, and he did. He would also say, β€œthe Lord is coming, we have to be ready”….And ready he was! We love him and miss him, but we are comforted knowing we will see Dad again!
