Cedric Eugene Gibson, affectionately known as “Bull”, received his Robe and Crown on his father Lugene Gibson’s birthday, January 4, 2024. As he traveled to his new home, Cedric was surrounded by his loving mother and a host of family and friends immersed in love and light.
Cedric was born on October 4, 1968, to the late Lugene Gibson and Sarah Harrison Gibson of Enterprise, Alabama. Growing up, Cedric loved all things sports. Any sport that you could think of, Cedric played, receiving numerous awards and accolades. In his senior year of high school, Cedric put down his football cleats and seamlessly mastered the tuba in the Enterprise Marching Band. He later attended Wallace College for their EMT program, and Liberty University for advancement in Theological studies.
In adulthood, Cedric continued to wear many hats. He served the community for years as an EMT/firefighter for the Enterprise Fire Department. Cedric also obtained his commercial driver’s license and drove 18 wheelers for several major trucking companies. In his spare time, Cedric served as a volunteer police reserve for the City of New Brockton, Alabama.
Cedric loved singing gospel music, he recently converted from being an Auburn Tiger to an Alabama ‘Roll Tide” fan. He also loved showing and letting you know all about his guns. Cedric loved and adored his kids, grandkids, family, and friends. Most importantly, he loved the Lord.
Cedric accepted Christ at the tender age of 8 years old and formed a deep love and appreciation for spreading the Gospel. Cedric ministered and counseled many people during his earthly journey. He loved preaching. At the conclusion of every sermon, he reminded us all that “You never look down upon a man, unless you’re looking down to lift him up”.
Cedric is survived by his children Cedric Eugene Gibson (Tonyetta) and Whitley Diane Gibson, grandchildren Cedric Gibson III (CJ) and Thomas Liam Gibson, his former wife Gloria Gibson, mother Sarah Harrison Gibson, sisters Beverly Jean Gibson, Deborah Kay Gibson, Sally Kelly, Steven Kelly, Adolph Johnson Jr., Calvin Johnson, and a host of nieces, nephews, and several loyal friends.
Cedric was preceded in death by his father Lugene Gibson, and grandparents Arthur Gibson, Sisoretta Wilson Gibson, Clifford Harrison, and Lola Bell Briggs Harrison.
