Eugene Cortazar Cordero, III, 74, passed away peacefully in Bristol on Friday, Nov. 20, 2020. He was the loyal husband of Justina (Jimeno) Cordero for 45 years before his passing.

Born in Iloilo City, Philippines, he was one of 11 children born to the late Adelina (Coratazar) Cordero and Eugenio Silva Cordero.

Eugene graduated from the University of San Augustin in Iloilo City, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering. He worked for Stroh Brewery Company, PepsiCo and American Axle & Manufacturing before retiring. He had a lifelong love for fishing, bowling, cars, history documentaries and tinkering around the house. But he loved spending time with his beloved wife and family the most.

Eugene will be fondly remembered for his sense of humor and ability to make everyone around him feel welcome. He will continue to watch over his family and friends that he adored, as he did in life.

In addition to his wife Justina, Eugene also leaves behind his children: Jenny C. Williford and Eugene J. Cordero IV; his grandchildren: Kai, Ellie, Quincy and Alice; six of his siblings, many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews.

Eugene was predeceased by his parents and four of his siblings.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, services will follow at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in his name can be made to The Michael J. Fox Foundation or Alzheimer’s Association.
