  1. To my cousins, Teri, Greg and Melinda, we now have to teach the family legacy to our children and grandchildren. Our family has so much history to tell. We are so sad to lose the last of our Aunts and Uncles. Cordell was always a happy man, I will always remember his laugh and voice, also having my 1st Coors Light with him. He is now with all of our family members who has left this world. Love to you all.❤

    I am saddened to hear the news of Cordell’s passing. He hired me as a Graphic Artist in 1987 and was my first supervisor of 32yrs at Fort Lee. Cordell was kind, fair and honest. I thank him for starting off my career and being a man good character.
    God bless your family and may you find peace through The Lord which strengthens us.
