He served in the United States Air Force from 1957-1960. He was also very proud to serve as a Deacon at the Goshen Baptist Church. Cecil loved gardening, golf, gadgets of any sort, wood working, and was an avid coin collector. He enjoyed American History, especially the Civil War era. An avid Kentucky Wildcat fan, if there wasn’t a game on, you would most likely find Cecil watching one of his many favorite old westerns.
