Cedric aka Bimbo was 4/4 enrolled member of the Hoopa Tribe. He loved his home and his people. In recent years he participated in some of the traditional dances. Many will remember Cedric as a social guy who enjoyed sharing a joke, story, or anecdote with friends and family. Like the shell of an abalone, he was a little rough on the outside but beautiful, generous, loving and compassionate inside. He will be missed by all.
