Oct. 12, 1932 — Nov. 12, 2012

Cecil Wayland Cofield went home to be with the Lord on Monday, Nov. 12, 2012, at the VA Hospital in Martinez, Calif.

Cecil was born in Carrier Mills, Ill., To Richard and Iva (Allen) Cofield on Oct. 12, 1932. He spent his early years working on Dr. Lewis’ farm, driving tractors for $3 a day. As a young man, Cecil was baptized and joined Galilee Baptist Church in Carrier Mills. Cecil graduated from Carrier Mills High School, later enlisting in the U.S. Air Force, where he served for 27 years. After serving and traveling all over the United States and abroad, he retired as a Senior Master Sgt. Following his retirement, Cecil worked in civil service at Travis Air Force Base for 15 years.

Cecil loved to travel and spend time with his family, seeing the world and learning other cultures. He looked forward to the summer vacations each year and the yearly camping trips that he led his family on. Cecil received two bachelors degrees from Southern Illinois University, one in business administration and the other in industrial technology. He also served on the Solano County Grand Jury for two consecutive terms. Cecil joined Mount Calvary Baptist Church in 1982, later becoming the chairman of the deacon’s staff where he served for 16 years. With failing health, Cecil was given the chairman emeritus in 2006, which was a great honor to him. Cecil served faithfully, anything that he could do he was always willing, he loved serving the Lord and it showed.

In 1981, Cecil married Aubin (Arnold) Cofield. From this union, was born a daughter, Staci Cofield.

He leaves to celebrate and appreciate his life, his wife, Aubin Cofield; three sons, Terrance Cofield, Gregory Cofield and Mark Cofield; two daughters, Rhonda Conley (Brent) and Staci Cofield (Bernard); mother, Jewell Cofield (who raised him); one sister, Lois Ann Williams (Cecil); nine grandchildren, Jovan, Terral, Terrie, Tayjhanna, Sa’Niyah, Khalil, Samuel, Daniel, Darrius; five great-grandchildren; three godchildren, Treva Fisher, Nicholas Donaldson and Marlo Stamps; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents and one brother, Larry Wayne Cofield.

Cecil was a loving husband and father. All that he met on his journey through life will miss Cecil, but he always knew this world was not his home; he was just passing through to the Promised Land.

Friends are invited to attend the Visitation to be held at Mount Calvary Baptist church, 1735 Enterprise Drive, Fairfield, from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 19, and are also invited to attend the funeral on Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2012, at 10 a.m., Mount Calvary Baptist Church. Burial with full military honors following the service at Rockville Cemetery.

Arrangements by Bryan-Braker Funeral Home, 1850 W. Texas St Fairfield, 707-425-4697 or www.bryanbraker.com.
