Nick Fred Ceroli Obituary
Born November 14, 1984, and left us August 12, 2011, Nick's first home was the mountain town of Ramona, CA, where he discovered then propagated his three loves – body building, music, and cooking. Nick's five years of piano lessons, self taught guitar and drums not only provided entertainment for him but for his friends and family as well. Body building, an absolute passion to Nick, gave him both self esteem and peace of mind. There was never a gym he and his buds could pass up; his favorites were: Ramona Fitness on Hwy. 67 and Fitness 101 in Lincoln City, OR. His favorite colors were red, red and red; favorite band – The Beatles; favorite car – 427 Cobra; and favorite pop star – Frank Sinatra (in his father's dreams). Nick's career choice was a restaurateur. He developed his palate both at his parent's home in Ramona, then later at Pop's home in Lincoln City, OR, where he experienced all major cuisines. Nick honed his skills as a bartender and server at the Chart House, Cheesecake Factory, and Carvers in San Diego; then at Kyllos in Lincoln City and Buffalo Wild Wings in Portland, OR.
There were two very special women in Nick's adult life, thank you LaLonie and thank you Deja.
Nick is survived by his parents, Fred Ceroli Jr. of Lincoln City, OR, and Michele Ceroli of Ramona, CA; his hero and older brother, Christian Ceroli of Carlsbad, CA; grandmothers, Agnes Ceroli of Lincoln City, OR, and Eileen Zurla of East Islip, NY; and grand aunt, Elsie Bayer Raynor. He was preceded in death by his grandfathers, band leader Fred Ceroli Sr. and Air Americas Capt. John Zurla.

Nick Ceroli, our big, muscular, powerful, impervious man…my poor, poor, helpless little boy.
He died of drug addiction.
