Cesar Raul Cervantes was born in Mexicali, Baja California on July 18, 1955, where he lived his childhood and part of his adult life. He met his soon-to-be wife Norma, and quickly fell in love with her. They were married shortly after. They both said “I do” and tied the knot on June 11, 1976. They lived in a small house in Mexicali; it was a studio house where their love and journey started. They soon were expecting their first daughter Jessell; then their second-oldest daughter Erika was born to them.
In June of 1981 Cesar and Norma Cervantes came to know the Lord Jesus Christ, where they both accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. The Lord had different plans for their lives and all four of them soon moved to California to start a new chapter. In 1984 Cesar baptized and committed his Christian walk with the Lord and leaving everything behind and starting a new life in Christ as a new Man. He was dedicated into pleasing the LORD, and in making his family Happy. Giving them his very best, his all. Shortly after they had moved to California, they had their third daughter Norma (or as we all call her, Normita). Their youngest daughter Delmy was born five years later.
Cesar would make time for his family, taking the family out to dinner, church, to the park for his little girls to play, and to the beach. He loved seeing his wife and girls having a good time. He would always think of others before himself. Cesar was a giver. He would give his money, his wisdom, his strength, his advice, his talent, anything he could to help out anyone who was in need. But most importantly, he would give out his LOVE to the most important people in his life, his wife and four daughters, whom he Loved very much without a doubt.
The family made the decision to move to Vista in 1991; they lived 20 minutes away from Oceanside beach. They lived there for 15 years, living in California a grand total of 25 years. In 2006 Cesar, his wife Norma and their youngest daughter Delmy moved to Jourdanton. They were excited to have purchased their first home where Cesar and Norma lived together for 15 years, until the Lord called him home on October 1.
Cesar and Norma were married for 45 years, and he was faithful to her all the way up until his death. Cesar had many hobbies, among a few were fixing /painting cars, reading books, especially the Bible. He loved to watch boxing, which was one of his favorite hobbies, especially watching it with his wife, which they both enjoyed very much. Soccer was another of his favorite sports. His favorite team was Las Chivas del Guadalajara. But most importantly, He LOVED spending time with his family. He loved making jokes and making everyone laugh, and talking about his childhood memories to the grandkids was the highlight for him. Just spending time with the family was the best thing for him; he enjoyed it very, very much.
He was an outstanding husband, father, grandpa, brother, uncle and friend. He was truly one of a kind. He will be truly missed by everyone who knew him, but especially by his beloved family who LOVES him VERY MUCH.
Cesar was a true man of God, very loyal, honest, kind, compassionate, friendly sincere and very loving. He was very forgiving as well.
We don’t say, “goodbye.” We say, “See you soon!” Because one day we will be together in heaven, and we will never be separated again. Thanks to what Jesus Christ did on the cross. He paid for us to be forgiven, he made a way for us to be with the Father and so it shall be.
