Cecil Owens

March 10, 1939 — July 1, 2022

Bladenboro

Cecil Owens, 83, of Bladenboro went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Friday, July 1, 2022.  He is preceded in death by his parents, Melvin and Mildred Lee Owens, brothers, James and Tommy Owens, sisters, Faye Thompson, Geneva Hester, and Jeanette Atkinson.

Cecil was a hardworking man, who loved to tinker on things, refurbish piano’s, work in his garden, flower beds and enjoyed a collard sandwich. He loved to sing and sit around listening to Elvis while enjoying the beauty of his flowers. Cecil adored his children and grandchildren. He loved nothing more than to go eat with his family every Sunday. If you rode by his house at Christmas, you knew that it was his favorite holiday. Cecil loved his soulmate, Gina. He had a big heart and would do for others before doing for himself. His love for his family and smile will be missed.
