Cecil Clark Bradshaw was born on October 9, 1936 to Sterling Cecil Bradshaw and Mae Belle Carter of Clinton, North Carolina.
Cecil Clark grew up in Keener, North Carolina and attended Clinton High School. He was an outstanding basketball player. In fact he was such an excellent player, forward position, that he was offered a full basketball scholarship to Atlantic Christian College in Wilson, N.C... Being a Wolfpack fan, he turned this down to attend 2 years at NC State University.
His talents continued as he could play a ukulele like nobody's business and sing. Cecil's dry sense of wit kept everyone laughing and he had such a sweet spirit that he was liked by all who knew him.
