Cecil, a “quiet comedian”, was the most loving and generous husband, dad and grandpa. He had a passion for cars and motorcycles. A bit of a fixer, he would do his best and attempt to fix anything. After 44 years at Bruce Power, Cecil spent his time hanging out with his pups, drinking his tea, spending time with his beloved Liz and watching every NASCAR race that he could. Cecil touched the lives of many and he will be immensely missed by his family, friends and community.
Visitation and his memorial service was held at the Davey-Linklater Funeral Home in Kincardine on Monday, July 10, 2023. The funeral celebrant was Ann Maycock.
Interment Kincardine Cemetery.
If so desired, memorial donations to Community Foundation Grey Bruce – Kincardine Community Fund would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy by Cecil’s family.
