Dedicated Servant

WAYNESVILLE — Cedric Hoten Inman, 81, went home to be with the Lord Friday, Dec. 28, 2012.

A native and lifelong resident of Haywood County, he was the son of the late William J. and Julia Parton Inman.

He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Virgie Whitner Inman; three sons, Donnie Inman, of Gastonia, Darrell Inman (Julie), of Asheville, and Matt Inman (Cherri), of Waynesville; two sisters, Edna McCarter, of Waynesville, and Ruth Cole of Valdese; four grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
