John Robert Cerrato Obituary
John Robert Cerrato
Dec. 30, 1962 - July 28, 2013
Resident of Pleasanton
John passed away at his home surrounded by his devoted family in Pleasanton after a ten-month battle with cancer. He touched many people with his calming nature and good humor.
John was born in Redwood City, CA. He graduated from Independence High School and received a B.S. in Business Marketing at San Jose State University. He worked in the semiconductor industry for thirty-two years. At the time of his passing he was Senior Corporate Vice President of Global Sales at Samsung Semiconductor in San Jose where he enjoyed working for the past 15 years. His passions were spending time with his extended family at his home, golfing with his family and friends, the Oakland Raiders, and attending his four son's sporting activities and accomplishments.
John is survived by his loving wife and high school "sweet-heart," Yvonne; sons Robert 29, Steven 26, Anthony 21, and Ricky 13. His parents: Jackie and Robert of Shingle Springs, sisters Roberta Harrison, Gina Kilmer, Angela Baldwin, and brother Vaughn Cerrato also survive him. John was welcomed into heaven by an angel and older sister, Nancy Flavel. Many nieces and nephews will miss his generous loving spirit. The family would like to express their gratitude for the abundance of prayers, support and love from the many friends, family and acquaintances. A memorial to celebrate his life will be held on Aug. 7, 7:00 pm at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church, 4001 Stoneridge Drive, Pleasanton. For further details, please email yvonnecerrato@gmail.com. In lieu of flowers, you would honor John by making a memorial donation to www.paradisepassports.com.
