Queen Creek, Arizona — Hector Miguel Cardona, 74, passed away on Tuesday, January 19th, 2016 at Mercy Hospital in Gilbert, Arizona, surrounded by his loving family.  Hector was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and immigrated to the United States at the age of 24 to marry his beloved wife, Elisabet.  Hector dedicated his life to his family, friends, and faith.  With not one bit of malice in his heart, Hector was a friend to all.  He was quick to accept and forgive, never holding a grudge against anyone.  Hector was always eager to help friends and neighbors, and he sincerely loved learning about the details of everyone’s lives.  In his final years, Hector lived by one of his favorite mottos, “No pain, no gain.”  He fought for his life every second of every day until he was called home to his Heavenly Father.  Hector is survived by his wife of 49 years, Elisabet (Alvarez) Cardona; his son, Shawn Andre Cardona; his daughter, Giselle Ann Cardona; his grandson, Elijah Gonzalez; his brother-in-law Del Alvarez and his wife Joann Saba Alvarez; his sister-in-law Lynette Speroni and her husband William Speroni; and many more extended family members and close friends.  Hector will be greatly missed for his sense of humor, his love for music and dancing, and his enormous heart.

    Helping care for you these past several years has been a blessing. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you and for the way you accepted the challenges of this life with grace, dignity, and courage…you fought to the very end. Until we meet again.

      I just found this online. I never saw it. He loved you so much, Del. You were his rock throughout his illness. On the anniversary of his death, I remember him with so much love. We were blessed to have him in our family. He was so proud when I told him that he was also my big brother, not just a brother in law. We have a huge hole in our lives without him. Until we are all together again Hector. I love you big brother!
