Cedric Ingram was born on April 20, 1944, in Gimme-Me-Bit in the parish of
Clarendon, Jamaica, son of the late Eric Brown and Edna Boothe. He attended Basic
school, then all-age school in Yorktown, and later transferred to Gimme-Me-Bit all-age to complete his formal education. At age 15, Cedric worked with his dad in construction at Vernamfield. He then went on to work for the Agricultural Development Corporation as a Tractor Operator. He was also a farmer.
Cedric met Nurlene in 1970 and they immediately fell in love. The two wed and had four children: Georgia (Nicky), Tanya (Vicky), Temi, and Shawn (Oran); and an adopted son, Durrant (Fatman).
In 1992, Cedric and his family moved to Amityville, NY, where he was employed in Medical Waste Management at Stein & Giannott of West Babylon, then Stericyle of Farmingdale. In 2009, at age 65, Cedric retired.
Cedric was a dedicated husband, father, and grandfather, first and foremost. He treasured his wife, children, and grandchildren, and embraced every moment with them. Though a man of few words, Cedric had a magnetic personality, effortlessly attracting lasting friends and loved ones everywhere he went, all of whom will sorely miss him.
