Cedric grew up and attended schools in Moretown. As a young man he went to work at the Ward Lumber Co. in Moretown, pruning trees and later working on the hot pond. He worked for Ed Hayes as a truck driver, picking up milk at local farms. He also worked for the town of Moretown on the road crew. Much of his working life was spent in the woods logging.
