Cedric was a talented man that was extremely kind, young and optimistic. He was a singer, superhero, encourager and most of all, a great individual with a huge heart. At an early age Cedric discovered that he was a talented singer and performed at various talent shows until graduating from Ole man High School in 1981. After graduating high school he enlisted in the Army and obtained a rate grade of SP4. Following a period of serving his country, he became a successful Chef for Coy's which was a restaurant staple at that time. He eventually relocated to Durham, North Carolina where he remained a resident for the remainder of his life.
While there he would work in construction and enjoyed painting homes and installing sheetrock. In 2014, Cedric would become an amputee which resulted in him having to learn to walk again. While most people would have given up on life due to this condition, he decided to use his condition as a staple to help others that are faced with amputation at the Veterans Hospital in Durhma, North Carolina which is where he had his surgery. Cedric spoke openly to patients about the bad days as well as the good days ahead and reassured them that things will get better with time.
He found great joy in helping others even before himself and he will be greatly missed.
