Cedric J. Gillespie

June 16, 1995 - July 29, 2018

Bangor No longer able to endure the pain of this life, Cedric Jeffrey Gillespie left us for a better place on July 29, 2018. He was 23 years old. Cedric was born on June 16, 1995, the only and beloved child of Kristina Brown and Jeffrey Gillespie.
He was originally from Monson and loved spending time there, always considering it his true home. Cedric enjoyed music, reading, fishing and vacations at Higgins Beach. He liked spending time with his friends, hanging out in his garage and making a mess of his room. He spent many hours fixing up his Ford pick-up truck, his pride and joy, and liked nothing better than to be driving it on dirt roads in the middle of nowhere.
Cedric was predeceased by his maternal grandfather, David Brown; paternal grandfather, John Gillespie; his favorite aunt, Rachel Brown Ulman; and his collie, Reilly. He leaves behind his mother, for whom he was the light and love of this world; his mom's partner, Brett Grandchamp; his nana, Jean Brown; his uncle, Erik Brown; his aunt, Kelly Brown and her children, Aidan and Catriona; his father, Jeffrey Gillespie and the Gillespie family; and special, life-long friend, Patrick Gamble, whom he considered his brother.
Hugs and kisses always, my Cessa. Love you to the moon ... and back.
Visiting hours will be held Friday, August 3, from 5 to 7p.m. at Kiley and Foley Funeral Service, 299 Union Street, Bangor. Messages and memories may be shared with the family at www.kileyandfoley.com.

Dear Kris and family,
Our family is keeping you in their thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. I remember how excited you were when you called to tell me of Cedric's birth. I wish you all healing and peace, especially you, Krissy.

I am terribly sorry for your loss. I wish that there were words that I could say that could take away some of your pain. I will always remember Cedric as that mischievous young boy that came into the office and broke the squishy toy and then grew to be a fine young man. I wish that you may find peace and comfort during these difficult times.

Kristina, I am so sorry for the loss of your precious Cedric. I only met him one time when he was a toddler, it was at Thanksgiving at (my Aunt Ellen and Uncle Bill) your Gram and Grampa Brown's house. I was talking with Rachel and she said "This is "Cedgie", we talked about how absolutely adorable he was. He looks a lot like your Dad. I hope you can find comfort knowing that Cedric is now at peace. Also please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

There are no words..... Cedric, you were a good guy and I am glad we got to share some laughs and experiences at the base together. I am sorry the pain got to be too much.... you will be missed. I hope you have found your peace.

Please accept my deepest sympathies.The Bible states that God is near to those that be of a broken heart, and of a contrite spirit. I would hope that this truth could be of comfort to you, during this time of great sorrow. My heart goes out to you, with deep sincerity.

I am sure that you are all very sad to have lost your loved one. Reading the following phrase that you shared, " No longer able to endure the pain of this life", I can almost imagine what happened. I send all of my respect and blessings----may your loved one rest in peace---
