May 13, 1929 – December 22, 2016
His family remembers him as a loving, caring, patient man whose gentle smile melted the iciest of times.
All those he encountered, he touched.
His life was a mirror that reflected the light and warmth of his savior Jesus Christ. It was defined by Gospel love — the idea that our Christian faith is in deeds and not just words and that the power of prayer and unwavering faith can heal and move mountains.
So to know Pastor Ernie Cruz, as a family man, a friend, a minister or even as a passerby was to LOVE him and was to BE LOVED by him.
Ernie was called home December 22nd, 2016 surrounded by his family and loved ones. We are comforted to know that he is in the arms of his beloved, praising his King.
Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
