Cecil Harvey Burrage, Jr., age 63, of Texarkana, Arkansas went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Thursday, May 13, 2021 in a local hospital.
Mr. Burrage was born on May 20, 1957 in Downey, California. He was a welder’s helper on the pipeline and a member of the Pipeliners Local 798. He was also a member of The Vessel Church.
