Our sincere condolences to the family. Uncle Cec always had a beautiful smile that was very contagious. I’ve really enjoyed all our chats together over the years. I really appreciate you being an amazing Uncle. Thanks for spoiling me with yummy food that you and Aunt Ella could pull together in record time. I’m very thankful you didn’t tell my parents when Barry and myself broke Aunt Ella’s clothes pins trying out his new BB gun. Life won’t be the same without you but our memories will last a lifetime.

Love and miss you very much.,❤️❤️❤️ Renée XOX

We are sorry to hear of the loss of your father Cec. The staff got to know Cec as he and Ella would come into the store every Tuesday morning. We looked forward to seeing them and having a chat and a laugh. Even when his days weren’t so good, he still tried to come in to see us all.

My deepest sympathies to Ella the family. Its been a great privilege and blessing to have had fellowship with such a great friend. Cecil always said, if you want a friend, you have to be a friend. A true friend he was indeed. And he had a friend who stuck closer than a brother, and preserved him all his days. The divine light truly shone in his heart, and he left an impression on my heart that will be with me forever.
May the peace of God touch the hearts of all those who loved him.
