Cecil introduced me to Byron Durham, who built my original 540 BBC, back in 1999. Cecil was a very outspoken man who had a lot of good ideas about everything, and he was not bashful about letting you know where he stood on any subject. I always enjoyed getting into discussions with Cecil and listening to his opinion on various subjects. He always made you think. Cecil will be missed by many friends in Baton Rouge.

Please say a special prayer for Blanch Augustas, Cecil’s wife, and their family.
