The Day Home Mourns the Loss of Cecil P. Reeves

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.

Addie and Cecil Reeves

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.

    Cecil Reeves worked tirelessly and unselfishly for the greater good of all the children and families served by St. Vincent’s Day Home. He was a gentleman in the best sense of the word.

    I’ll miss him and St. Vincent’s will miss him.

    Cecil Reeves was my uncle and it has almost been three years since he’s been gone. I really miss him me and my daughter was with him just a few hours before he passed away.Before he left this earth he said Deb,”My Dad and Mother they are all here just waiting for me leave with them” that was a priceless moment. A year later my Mother Vesta joined him and that was the last for that generation. I greatly miss them but we must they are in Heaven watching over us until we see them again.
