Saint Vincent’s Day Home was saddened to learn of the death of past Board member and long-time supporter Cecil P. Reeves of Berkeley. Cecil and his wife Addie, to whom he was married for 57 years until her death in 2003, were active and involved supporters of the Day Home for many years.
Cecil worked in a variety of fields and operated a number of long term and profitable businesses over the years. Together he and Addie discovered their true and lasting professional love, the field of Real Estate. Cecil eventually became an agent with the Valva Realty Company in 1969 where he remained until his death.
Cecil’s many civic activities included being an Advisory Board member to the Day Home, chairman of the Board of Metropolitan YMCA Shelter Center, and a member of the Oakland Lion’s Club and Peerless Elks Lodge, Berkeley. He was also very active in the Twenty-Third Avenue Church of God congregation where he was a member for over 60 years. Cecil always brought a number of church members with him every year to the Saint Vincent’s Day Home Annual Brunch.
Cecil truly loved the Day Home where he and Addie contributed generously over the years. He will truly be missed by all of us.
