Cedric Kendal Barber
In Loving Memory
We celebrate the life and memory of
Cedric Kendal Barber.
Cedric was born in Maywood, IL on October 13, 1984. He graduated from St. Paul Lutheran in Melrose Park and Proviso East in Maywood.
Throughout his life, Cedric had a chance to travel different parts of the world, work numerous jobs, and connect with people from all walks of life. A truly unique individual, Cedric had a mantra - he thumped his chest and called himself a “Warrior.” Considering his triumphs and challenges, we know that to be very true.
Cedric -- Outspoken, dynamic, loyal, courageous. A big guy, bold and boisterous, with a kind heart.
Cedric was outgoing, detailed and a lifelong learner. Of course, he could be wild. He had the ability to do whatever he wanted and he made an impact on many people. You could always count on him to help out, whether it was helping a friend move or delivering fresh water to the people in Flint, Michigan.
Cedric is survived by his mother and father, and three sisters. He also leaves behind a host of family and close friends who played very important roles in his life.
Cedric was a significant, at times dramatic and impactful part of our lives, and for us as friends and family, we know that Cedric meant a lot to us and we feel sad at his passing. His many, many longtime friends, far and wide, know he was a “cool dude.” Cedric will be missed by all who knew him.
Rest in peace, Ced.
