Mayor Larry Milton wishes to express his sincere condolences on behalf of himself, his colleagues on the Board of Aldermen and the City of Branson, to the family of Branson entertainer, Cedric Benoit who died on Thursday.
“I am saddened to hear of the passing of my friend Cedric Benoit,” said Mayor Larry Milton. “Cedric had a larger than life personality and brightened every room he walked into with a “Laissez le bon temps rouler” or “let the good times roll” for those of us who weren’t as fluent in French as he was. His engaging personality and contagious smile will be greatly missed. Repose en paix my friend,” Mayor Milton said.
The 62-year-old performed for several years with the Cajun Connection at Silver Dollar City. He was a foundational part of the growth of Branson in the 1990s and early 2000s and in his later years continued to be an active community member and entertainer.
