Christopher Lee Cornish, 49 of Victoria passed away on Tuesday, November 10, 2020 in San Antonio, TX. He was born February 14, 1971 in Kenedy, TX to Barry and Cindy Cornish. Chris was by some regard a jack of all trades; ranging from his passion for music to his skill in artwork. He loved spending time with family and friends, whether it be playing music or simply sitting around with his wife and children enjoying the free time. He found his calling as a respiratory therapist where he was able to spread his love to others by helping them both medically and with his joyful personality. Chris was so proud and loved his family more than anything, and in his final moments was at peace knowing they were there with him. He is survived by his wife, Connie Hernandez Cornish; sons, Coleton Lee Cornish, Connor Lee Cornish and his parents, Barry and Cindy Cornish all of Victoria. A visitation will be held on Monday, November 16, 2020 from 11 am -1 pm at Rosewood Funeral Chapels with a service to begin at 1 PM.

Dearest Cindy & Barry, our hearts ache as we think of you facing life without your precious son. During our recent visit with Becky & Tom, we learned of Chris’ hospitalization & brave battle for life. Reading the comments & viewing the photos make us wish we had personally known Chris.

Mr.and Mrs. Cornish, Connie and the boys, you have my condolences. I first met Chris in junior high and have to say he was the coolest guy around. I lost touch with him until a couple of years ago and he was still the coolest guy around. I guess nothing changes when you're genuinely a good person. R.I.P. brother, you are missed.

Connie, Coleton and Family
I am so sorry for your loss. Chris came into my life through my son Brian and of course, Coleton. I remember meeting Chris when he brought Coleton over to spend time with Brian. Chris noticed my acoustic guitar sitting in the corner of my living room, and as we spent some time visiting, I learned that he played guitar as well. One thing led to another and the next thing you know, we were meeting together on Saturday nights to play. It led to larger family get-togethers and "Saturday night jams". My dad would even sit in with us with his harmonica as well, and we would have supper together. It was a great time had by all. Chris gave us great memories, touched all of our lives, and he was a fine, talented musician. Everyone was so impressed! I also remember Chris letting me take the black Stingray Corvette for a spin. He was a soft spoken, good man with a good heart, and we will all miss him. God bless you and keep you and your family Chris. You were my brother through music.

Dear Cindy,

It has been 35 years since I have seen you, but I remember your presence in my accounting class at UHV.

I am so sorry for your loss, Beyond that, words fail me. I will be praying for all of you and hoping that you can get through this very sad time. I am sure that your parents welcomed him into Eternal life; I am also sure that he was an awesome person because you and your husband raised him to be that way.

Grace and peace to you and your family.

Sincerely,

Ed Walker
