Emmanuel Cervantes was born on March 8, 1995, in Dallas, Texas. He was the second oldest child born to Herminio, Sr. and Maria Cervantes. He transitioned on December 26, 2018, at age 23.
Affectionately regarded as "Mane" by family and friends, Emmanuel graduated from Garland High School in 2013. He went on to attend Richland College and pursued a career in customer service. At the time of his transition, he was employed at Fijitsu.
Emmanuel enjoyed eating Chinese food; watching his favorite show, Friends, and Netflix; cooking and cleaning; and dinosaurs. He most enjoyed spending time with family. Selfless, kind, sweet, affectionate, giving, and humorous, Emmanuel will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
He was predeceased by his maternal grandfather, Lenchito. Those left to cherish precious memories include his parents, Herminio, Sr. and Maria Cervantes; siblings: Herminio Cervantes, Jr., David Cervantes, and Lizett Cervantes; maternal grandmother, Chenchita; paternal grandfather, Chabelo; paternal grandmother, Tilita; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
