In his spare time Cedric enjoyed basketball, collecting Jordan shoes, listening to music, dancing (especially ‘How to Dougie’), watching sporting events, cutting hair, cooking,

and playing video games, such as Zelda and Mario Kart. He was also known for his quick wit. Being the man he was, Cedric enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He was the biggest supporter to his boys in coaching, practicing, and attending their sporting events. He loved his wife Marissa, in which you would often find the two joking with each other. He worked very hard to give her a good life. He was such an inspiration to many, and will greatly be missed.
