Cecil was born September 28, 1933 in Colorado, the youngest son of Henry and Hilda Vogt. Cecil was a standout athlete at Cambridge High School, especially in football and baseball, graduating in 1953.
Shortly after his marriage to Beverly Bain of Cambridge, he was drafted into the Army. He spent almost two years in Germany. Bev and their son Roger, joined him there in 1955. A second son, Steven, was born in 1960. They divorced but remained friends for life. Cecil later married Jeanette Secrest; they were happily married for 40 years until her passing in 2003.
Cecil owned and operated C.L. Vogt Wood Products in Payette for approximately 20 years. After retirement, Cecil, an avid outdoorsman, loved fishing and hunting, gardening and spending time with his friends and family, especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He remodeled a bus as a camper, naming it the “Vogtswagon”. He had a great sense of humor and loved to tease.
Cecil accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, and was baptized March 21, 2006, at Treasure Valley Baptist Church, Meridian, Idaho.

To Cecil's Family,
Cecil was a great man, he always was positive and had a great attitude, I remember fishing with him, Byron and my father John, then having to clean all the fish while the men told "fish tales" about the one that got away. I am proud to have known him and to have been able to care for him the past 8 years or so. Cecil you are a bright and shining star, I will see you on the boat.
