Quietly passed away at Jessica’s House, Exeter on Wednesday, February 17, 2021, at the age of 83. Beloved husband of the late Betty (Roeszler) Glanville (2013). Cherished stepfather of Dave and Roxane Bell of Exeter, and Dan Bell of London. Proud grandfather of the late Brooke Bell (2019), Shay Bell-Kirkham, Summer Bell, and Matthew Bell. Cecil was a substitute father and grandfather to so many people that entered his life, and he has left them with many fond memories and laughter. He will be surely missed by Phyllis Fidler, Tara Bruno, Maggie Chickwanda, and all of his nieces and nephews whom shared his life journey.
Cecil was a long time employee of Dashwood Industries (DI) and was so very proud of his 25 plus years that he worked there making many lifetime friends. Cecil enjoyed being surrounded by family and friends so much, that he always hosted a big party for his birthday every year and all were invited to enjoy a huge barbeque roast with all the fixings! Cecil will be missed by his wonderful neighbours who were always there to lend a helping hand and keep an eye on him and his partner in crime, Jared Anstett.
The family wishes to thank all of the staff at Jessica’s House for their care and compassion shown to Cecil during his time there.
