Mr. King is/was a nice man. I enjoyed talking to him on the sidewalk every now and then. I pray his family will remember his wit and humor during these times. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family.

Cecil and I worked together for 25 years at Cameron-Brown from when I was head of Administrative functions through the 1980 -1995 years when I was President. He was extremely dependable and certainly met and generally exceeded expectations in every assignment in his job accountability. I and many in the Cameron-Brown family have tremendous respect for Cecil and memories of a special person.
