Corn was a loving father of two daughters who meant the world to him. Corn grew up in Leavenworth where he made countless amounts of friends and then moved to Wenatchee, where he mastered his trade as a diesel mechanic for over two decades. He worked for Mobile Fleet most of his career and most recently at Hi-Up Fruit. He made many close friends at both locations,some who also became close family friends. His knowledge and love for fixing things was extremely admirable.
Cornelio is survived by his fiancé, Vanessa Aviles, his parents, Eutimio and Ofelia Tovar, his brothers Roberto Tovar, Jesus Tovar (Rachel Tovar), Juan Tovar (Mackenzie Hughes), and Manuel Guerrero, and sisters, Eva Tovar (Rene Aviles), Ana Tovar-Kopinski (Brett Kopinski), Cristina Gonzalez (Miguel Gonzalez) and Teresa Guerrero. Corn is also survived by his grandparents, Benedicto and Maria Sanchez, and his many uncles, aunts, and cousins.
Corn lived his life doing activities he loved: shed hunting, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, barbecuing, hiking, camping and being the world’s best pinata guy at every party. Corn could rarely be found sitting because he was always too busy entertaining everyone and spending time with his family and friends.
Corn’s last year was spent making the happiest of memories with Vanessa. His fun, adventurous and loving spirit will be missed by many.
