Cedric Sanders Obituary

Brother Cedric Sanders, “If I can help somebody as I pass along, then my living shall not be in vain.”

Cedric accepted Christ at an early age and joined St. Mark AME Church in Newton. He later became a member at Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in Newton and Friendship Baptist Church in Enterprise. God blessed Cedric with the gift of playing multiple instruments. He continued to serve until his health declined.  

He was educated in the Dale County school system, graduating from Mack M. Matthews. Cedric studied music at Troy State University, later enlisting in the United States Army. He was gifted to play multiple instruments, the organ and piano being his favorite.
