Pedro “Pete” Gilbert Cordova, 38 of Weed, passed away on Sunday, August 16, 2009.
He was born on October 18, 1970 in Downey California, and has lived in Weed for over 20 years.
He is best known for his ability to make people laugh. He worked as a laborer with strong work ethic and most enjoyed the years he spend installing satellite TV.
He is much loved and missed by many and is survived by his parents, Pedro and Christy Cordova; sisters, Lueanna Houle, Natalie Paige, Tammy Cordova and Amy Cordova; brothers, James and Andrew Cordova; wife, Heather Cordova; and his beloved children, son, Kaelin; and daughters, Brianna, Alyssa and Julianna. Nieces, nephews, aunts, cousins and many friends will deeply miss him as well.
Pete loved being surrounded by family and friends just visiting and making them laugh. His children were very dear to his heart and each had a special and unique relationship with him. There was nothing he couldn’t fix, and he always found time to help.
He loved the Lord and because of that there was a place in his heart for those in need. He would give his last dollar to a stranger. He never judged the needy, and was known to open his home to the homeless, feed the hungry, and give a smile to the broken on many occasions.
He will be mostly missed for his hilarity and outstanding colorful personality. Though his life was short, he touched the lives of so many. Pete was truly one of a kind.
An open memorial service was held on Tuesday, August 25 at Church of the Nazarene, 415 Evergreen Lane in Yreka at 2 p.m.
