Now club and county school and recreation officials are faced with the heartbreaking task of helping the nearly 800 children he worked with grieve his stunning loss.

The museum at Cephas' home at 203 N. Carey St. is named after one of the city's first black auxiliary firefighters and fire history buffs.
