Official Tribute to Cedrick Cotton & Family

It is with deep sadness and utter disbelief that we share that Cedrick Cotton passed away on the morning of February 9, 2021 due to senseless violence in Southwest Houston. This unexpected attack has devastated Cedrick’s family, friends, and support system.

Cedrick (known as Ced) was a loving father, good brother, and awesome friend. Those who knew Ced remember him as an incredibly special and solid person who was a true, loyal friend to everyone he met. He had a heart the size of his beloved state of Texas, which he repped Third Ward, TX to the fullest. Whether it’s a connection from Parker Elementary, Johnston Middle School, or Lamar High School, Ced was well known in the city. But it’s his involvement in the R&B Group, Ideal that many recognize and know him.

This memorial fund seeks to support his loved ones with any funeral costs and other expenses that may arise. The fund’s intention is to help alleviate the financial hardship that becomes present when arranging a funeral.

Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers. Even if you are not in a position to help out, please share this GoFundMe page with your friends and family. We appreciate any support given during this difficult time. Hug your loved ones tightly and let them know you love them while they are still with us. Tomorrow truly is not promised. Stay blessed!

***** This is already a trying time, but it’s not lost upon us that people will try to create fake pages to capitalize off this tragedy.  This is the only fundraiser for my brother, Cedrick Cotton. Beware of scam pages. If you don’t see my name, Maverick Cotton, Jennifer Cotton, Delores Floyd, and/or the official Ideal group page listed, it’s not real.
