He worked for many years at the First American Corporation and developed lasting friendships with his co-workers. For the past nine years, he has walked the halls of Spruce High School as a special education teacher's assistant. assistant football coach, head tennis coach, senior sponsor, hall monitor, school clerk, and so many other untitled positions. He had a special place in his heart for Spruce.
He was a longtime member of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Edgewood, Texas, and sometimes attended Calvary Temple Community Baptist Church in Mesquite, Texas. He was a member of Dallas Coaches Association where he was proud of being the incoming second vice-president.
Also raised by his uncle and aunt, Don Skinner and Johnnie Mae Skinner, Cecil enjoyed helping people, cooking, and entertaining. He enjoyed life to the fullest. He was a serious Dallas Cowboys and Dallas Mavericks fan.
He is survived by his wife, Brenda; the sons he loved, Robert Brandon and Ronald K; the daughters he loved, Victoria, and Jerrion; his mother, Sarah Wesley Randle; his brothers, Steve Randle (Letty) and Kerry Randle (Annie); his aunt, Johnnie Mae Skinner; his grandchildren; his loving nephews, nieces, many cousins, family members, co-workers, church members, and friends.
