Obituary for Cecil George Rhodes JR

Cecil (DD) Rhodes Jr. was born August 4, 1966 in Heidelberg, Germany to the parents of Cecil and Margaret Rhodes.

Cecil Jr. graduated from Fort Meade High School in June 1984 and then went on to serve in the United Sates Army. Despite his illness, he was determined, and his faith never wavered. When he was enduring pain, he would always say to his family and friends, “I’m just taking it one day at a time. I’m blessed”.

Cecil (DD) Rhodes, Jr is survived by his wife Vanessa Mallory-Rhodes of 20 years, his son, Gui (Robert) Rhodes-Billinger of Pensacola, Fla., Daughter, Kayla Schofield of Pensacola, Fla. and stepson, Nicholas Bates of Fort Irwin, Ca as well as Grandsons Jayden and Ashton Lewis. Cecil Jr. also leaves to mourn his sisters Barbara (Kenneth) Rhodes-Benn of Pensacola, Fla, Monica Rhodes of Pensacola, Fla, his brothers, Gregory (Cornelia) Rhodes of Berlin, Germany and Kelvin (Jose) Nunn of Anniston, Al. and a host of Brother in Laws, Sister in Laws, Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews, as well as friends.

As his final commencement, he heard Our Savior say, “Well Done My Good and Faithful Servant”. It is time to come and inherit the kingdom prepared for you.

Cecil (DD) Rhodes, Jr. passed peacefully from this life on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 after a gradual decline in health. He was surrounded by his supported and loving family in last hours of his life.
