Farewell Cecil Addy - 36th Combat Engineer

 

Below is a letter I received from a dear friend of Cecil Addy's. Rest in peace buddy! I'm also attaching a few pics of him. Several of you will recognize his pic from the documentary, No Bridge Too Far.

Hi, Marion...

 

I sadly report that Cecil Addy of Decatur, MS passed away Wednesday, September 22, 2010. He had suffered a debilitating stroke in June. He now resides healthy and strong once more in a special place for "veteran angels." Maybe he and your dad are swapping tales with each other.

 

Should anyone want to send a card or note, here is the address for Cecil's daughter:

 

Debbie Boggan

2698 Muley Road

Decatur, MS 39327

 

Although I've not been in touch with you for quite some time, I have continued to keep up with your emails and website. Congratulations on your progress on the documentary!! I've not yet ordered a copy of the first segment, but plan to do so soon.

 

Once again, thank you so much for all you have and continue to do. Special thanks as well, to all the veterans....to whom we are forever indebted.

 

Fondly,

 

Nancy Gardner

Cecil's daughter, Debbie, contacted me and sent me her father's obituary.

 

 

Services for Cecil Elias Addy will be held today, at 10 a.m., at Mt. Zion Congregational Methodist Church with Revs. Johnny Mullinax, Tod Thompson, and Lin Chesney officiating. Burial will be in the church cemetery with Milling Funeral Home of Union in charge of arrangements.

 

Mr. Addy, 88, of Decatur, died Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2010, at his home surrounded by his loving family.

 

Mr. Addy was born on Aug. 4, 1922, in Newton County to Ervin and Emma Addy. He was a veteran of World War II, serving from Feb. 25, 1943 – Nov. 4, 1945. While in the service he participated in campaigns in Naples-Foggia, Rome-Arno, Southern France, Rhineland, and Central Europe. After returning home to Newton County, Mr. Addy began to farm and raise dairy cows. He was a true steward of the earth and loved working with his hands. Mr. Addy’s greatest loves were God and his family. He was a lifelong resident of Newton County and enjoyed hunting with his beagles, watching sports, and gardening.
