Prior to his illness, Cecil held a responsible position with the Arkansas state highway department. Funeral services are being held in Little Rock today. Interment will also be at that city where they have resided for many years.
Surviving with his mother are two sisters, Mrs. Mable Bryan and Mrs. Myra Henry; one niece; one uncle, C.U. Ragon of Lowell; two aunts, Mrs. E.A. Surprise of Lowell and Mrs. Myrtle Buckley of South Bend, besides other relatives of Southern Lake County.
