Robert Joseph Ceriotti Jr.
My wife and I have lived in St. Louis for just over four years. It was just over two years ago when my wife and I first met Lieutenant Ceriotti in unfavorable circumstances when two men tried to kill us. I credit the SLPD for their response and care to the situation but more specifically I want to thank Lieutenant Ceriotti for the way he handled the event. My wife and I were obviously shaken up. Sensing this Ceriotti took off his bullet proof vest and gave it to my wife to wear continuing to assure both of us that it would be ok. We did not know the Lieutenant long but I would guess that gesture of care and concern on that day of tragedy was just one example of the way he cared for the people he served. My wife and I are deeply saddened by his death and offer our prayers and condolences to the family.
