Cecil Dotson and his son

Minister, WWII veteran celebrates 100th birthday


The News and Sentinel in Parkersburg, W.Va., reports:

From the battlefield to the pulpit, Cecil Dotson has lived a full life since his 1914 birth in rural Ritchie County.

Although he came to Parkersburg at a young age, after World War II he said he probably spent more time away from Parkersburg than he spent in Parkersburg. He said as a (preacher) in the Church of Christ he moved around to different congregations.

Today he is a member of North End Church of Christ in Parkersburg. Although he was never (a full-time pulpit minister) there, he has preached there over the years.

“I preached in many places and sometimes I would be gone as long as seven years with different congregations,” he said. “I served churches in West Virginia and Ohio and I preached single services at churches in other states. It was scattered.”
