I was gifted a treasure when Joy asked me to help with Cecil. He was the kindest and most thoughtful person I have ever known. We became good friends and he shared many fascinating stories about his life, his work and his beloved community. I will always remember how passionate he felt about helping others and giving of his time and energy to benefit those less fortunate. I remain in awe of how wonderful this sweet friend was. Rest in peace dear Cecil.

I worked with Cecil for about 8 years at Dominion Sign Company. He was their expert sheet metal man and jack of all trades.
We worked on a job together at the Days Inn in Staunton. I was 80 feet in the air in a bucket painting the Road Sign and Cecil was below running the equipment. He would sway the bucket back and forth trying to scare the heck out of me. It worked.
We bought an old farm house in rural Bedford County and I was always picking Cecil's brain about this and that.
Cecil was very generous with his talents and always shared information with me about putting in electrical outlets, roofing, gutters, etc. The man could do anything ! He was a great help and I always appreciated that ! We enjoyed our time together.
Our sincere condolences to the Family..
Arlie and Nancy Garrabrant

My deepest sympathies to the family. I served with Cecil at Rescue 7 a couple of decades ago. I found him to be a very knowledgeable and caring individual. He was a dedicated mentor to the new members, and a training source for the seasoned members. His level of community involvement was unlimited and unmatched.
With sympathy,
R Pugh

I remember spending time, especially in the summer, at uncle Cecil‘s house. Spending the night with my older cousin Joy thinking I was the coolest. My gentle giant uncle always there with his deep dimpled smile. I can still picture him sitting on his front porch with his dog Lebon laughing at me as a rode my motorcycle up and down the street. Remembering him now and picturing my father Leon in the way he moved, talked and how they look alike. I know that they are together now once again. So sorry for your loss.
RIP Uncle Cecil. Love, Marcianne
