Cederberg was born to dairy farmers Albin and Helen (Olson) Cederberg in Bay City, Michigan; his father and maternal grandparents were immigrants from Sweden.[1] He attended public schools and at Bay City Junior College (1935–1937).

He entered the United States Army in April 1941, and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in July 1942, became a Captain in 1943, and was assigned to the 83rd Infantry Division. He participated in the Normandy invasion, and fought in France and Germany during World War II. He was decorated with five campaign battle stars and the Bronze Star. After the war, he was manager of Nelson Manufacturing Company of Bay City 1946-1952, and was mayor of Bay City from 1949 to 1953.

In 1950, Cederberg unsuccessfully challenged incumbent Roy O. Woodruff in the Republican Party primary election for the U.S. House of Representatives in Michigan's 10th congressional district. Woodruff did not seek the nomination in 1952 and Cederberg won the Republican primary. He went on to win the general election to the 83rd Congress and was subsequently re-elected to the twelve succeeding Congresses, serving from January 3, 1953, until his resignation December 31, 1978. He became the ranking minority member of the House Appropriations Committee. He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1978 to the 96th Congress, losing to Democrat Donald J. Albosta.

After his resignation from Congress, Cederberg lived in Alexandria, Virginia and was a consultant for United Technologies, RCA, and Grumman Aircraft. He moved to Florida in the late 1990s. Cederberg died of heart and kidney ailments in The Villages, Florida at the age of 88 and was interred in Elm Lawn Cemetery of Bay City. He is survived by two children from his first marriage, Tom Cederberg of Bay City, and Marilyn Warner of The Villages, a granddaughter, and a great-grandson. His first marriage to Arlene Munro Cederberg ended in divorce. His second wife, Marguerite "Peg" Kletchka Cederberg, whom he married in 1958, died in March 2006.

Cederberg was a member of American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Freemasons, Elks, Lions, and Odd Fellows. He was a close friend of U.S. President Gerald Ford, with whom he served alongside for many years as part of the Michigan Congressional delegation to Congress.
