Margaret Mary and Family, My deepest sympathy to each of you. I had the pleasure of working for Cecil for about 8 years during the 1980s at Great Dane. I always admired his compassionate nature and his devotion to his family. He loved to tell funny stories and I loved to hear him laugh at his own stories! Cecil truly made a positive difference in the lives of so many employees and I am privileged to have known him. May God bring you peace and strength in the days ahead.

I am late finding out about Cecil’s passing and I am so sorry for Margaret Mary and all the family. Cecil was a mentor for me in so many ways, and he had a great influence on my life. I worked for him for five years at Great Dane Trailers. He taught me the importance of looking out for the welfare of others, especially the plant workers who did not have the power to speak up for themselves. He was very compassionate and was always there to help those in need. At the time I was discerning about a religious vocation and Cecil encouraged me to follow God’s will in my life. We have kept in touch, and he was always kind to my family in Savannah. He will be greatly missed.
