Cedric had several hobbies that brought him joy. He took great pride in maintaining his yard and spent countless hours on his lawnmower meticulously cutting the grass to perfection. Being outdoors brought him immense happiness as he cherished the beauty of nature that surrounded him.


Listening to, and dancing to Cajun music was something he enjoyed more than anything. He was involved in St. Henry Catholic Church and served as an usher and Eucharistic minister.

Additionally, he was an active member of both the Pearl Harbor Association and American Legion, organizations that held significant importance in honoring those who served during wartime. Cedric was a man of simple tastes and had a warm and kindhearted personality.
