Gilberto Alexandro “Alex” Cordero
1996 – 2022
Gilberto “Alex” Cordero went home to be with the Lord on July 3, 2022. His passing is unexpected, though the Lord’s timing is not our own.
Alex was born on November 08,1996 in Oklahoma City, OK to his parents Gilberto “Alonso” Cordero & Cynthia Shores. Alex graduated from Edmond Santa Fe High School in May of 2015. Alex was a great worker wherever he worked. Alex did modeling & acting school with John Casablanca’s. Alex played a huge role in many lives. Alex was the first of a generation to graduate from high school and doing so broke the curse of lack of education, leaving a trail behind for his siblings to follow. Alex was the most humbling soul we knew. He was gentle, kind, generous, and full of love. Alex was very intelligent, always in advanced scores throughout his school years. Alex loved music, dancing & he enjoyed playing his video games.
Alex was an introvert, though if he had a true genuine set of ears, he would amaze you with his knowledge. Alex was passionate in helping people, he wanted people to do right, he wanted to people to be good to each other. He had a passion of learning US History and Government. He was a great son, brother, cousin, friend & grandson and will be dearly missed. Alex loved the Lord wholeheartedly and helped us grow with the understanding of the word in our home.
Alex was preceded in death by his Grandpa Gerardo Cordero, his father Gilberto “Alonso” Cordero & many family members on his mother’s side.
He leaves behind his “Momma” Cynthia Baca, “Step dad” Mario Baca JR, Brothers Miguel Shores & Mario Baca lll & his lovely sister Marisa Morton, whom he was protective of. He leaves behind his grandparents Gene Shores Sr, “Nana” Rebecca Shores, & Guadalupe Gonzalez, his aunts & uncles and many cousins…
