Isa, who was Cruz’s partner for 18 years, told TMZ that, “He was kind and loving. He never held on to anything and was always very open. He was a devoted father, he helped raise his stepson who is now in the Marines.”

“My favorite moment was family date night because it wasn’t just special for me, but for the kids as well. He always made sure to end things with an ‘I love you.'”
