On behalf of the McMillan family, we want to thank you all for your love, support, and beautiful tributes to my beloved husband.
Thank you for respecting our privacy as our family tries to process the hurt of losing our gentle giant.
We only ask the community to remember that off stage Cedric was a husband, father, brother and son and that words do hurt.
Things we have seen reported in the media/online, including his cause of death, family, and even where he is from, are filled with incorrect information.
Cedric’s cause of death is unknown at this time. It did not occur on a treadmill, nor is it known to be the result of past COVID or vaccinations.
Please remember that if the statement is not from the family, it probably isn’t true. Thank you.
