David "Cecil" Nunnally II

June 21, 2002 ~ July 15, 2021 (age 19)



David “Cecil” Nunnally II, age 19, of Fort Wayne, IN passed away on July 15, 2021 in Fort Wayne, IN due to a motorcycle accident.  Cecil was born on June 21, 2002 in Hillsboro, TX to David Cecil Lettiere and Dr. Jennifer Elizabeth Nunnally.  He was a class of 2021 graduate from Leo High School in Leo, IN.  Cecil was currently employed by Pizza Hut as a delivery driver in Fort Wayne.  He had formerly worked as a cook at Texas Roadhouse and helped at BMZ Wheel House both in Fort Wayne.  Cecil had recently applied at the Allen County Sheriff’s Department to become a confinement officer.  His dream was to become a sheriff’s Deputy.  Cecil had also applied to enlist to serve his country with the Army National Guard.  He was a past member of the St. Vincent’s Cub Scouts Pack 3009 and Boy Scouts Troop 2.  Cecil was a “rink rat” at the Roller Dome North and was a former dancer at the Fort Wayne Hip Hop dance studio.  He loved car meet, motorcycle shows, and all kinds of music.  Cecil loved watching the sunset and could often be found with his girlfriend Dahlia in the PFW parking garage 3 listening to music and watching the sun go down.  His other love was for his canine companions Chloe and King.  Chloe was the apple of his eye.  Cecil was a freedom warrior and wanted everyone to be taken care of even if he wasn’t doing ok himself.  He never judged anyone for where they currently stood in life but instead would extend a helping hand of love.  This young man was also extremely charismatic and had a knack for making people smile.  Loyalty, protective, and loving those he loved unconditionally came naturally to Cecil.  He was a true friend and loving soul who all who knew him will miss dearly.
