Cornelius Patrick Walsh Obituary
CORNELIUS PATRICK WALSH, of Lake Elsinore, CA, went home to be with the Lord during his sleep in the morning hours of August 8, 2016, after a hard fought battle with cancer. Born in Oakland, CA on March 12, 1954 to Woodrow and Helen Ekstrom Walsh, Cornelius loved growing up in the Bay Area with his six siblings, taking advantage of all that life had to offer. At the age of 18, Cornelius became a union driver, a career that he would hold for over 25 years. Cornelius had a passion for life and a love for music, dancing, fishing, cooking and especially golf. He was a loving father to his three daughters and always made time to share his love for cooking and outdoor activities with them. Cornelius was a caring friend and through his friends, he and his life-partner Jeanette, found much peace, love and strength in Jesus Christ. Together he and Jeanette enjoyed traveling, spending time with their dogs, and enjoyed the fellowship of their Life Group/Bible Study. Cornelius will be remembered for his sense of humor, boisterous laughter and his heart of gold. Cornelius was preceded by his father Woodrow Walsh and brothers Daniel and Jimmy Walsh. He is survived by his mother Helen Trader; his three daughters, Stefanie Walsh, Stacie Walsh and Shellie Martinez; his granddaughters, Nevaeh and Sienna Vega; his life-partner, Jeanette Reilly; brothers, John, Jerry and Timmy Walsh and sister Joy Karol. A service will be held honoring his faith and life on Saturday, August 13, 2016 at Murietta Valley Funeral Home at 3:00 p.m.
