April 20, 1948 – December 12, 2020

It is our honor to tell you about our beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and husband who passed away peacefully in his home.

Art was an honorable and hardworking person, and he taught his children to be the same. He was a family man who always took care of his own.

Art was a coal miner for 14 years after which he found his love for building cars. He built many from the ground up. He also had a passion for hunting and always looked forward to his annual hunting trip with his sons and brothers.

Art was married to his wife and the mother of his children, Eileen I. Cordova, for 53 years. We will miss his strong and quiet presence, and the love he shared with us all. His legacy will be passed on by his 3 children and their spouses, Art Cordova (Teresa), Tracy Flores (Beto), and Aaron Cordova (Amber). He is also survived by his 10 grandchildren and his 12 great-grandchildren.

Dad, may you rest peacefully in heaven. We will take over from here and care for our beautiful mom. Watch over us, we will miss you forever.

We will be holding a memorial service at New Life Fellowship on Friday, December 18th at 1pm.
