Ray Ceresino Obituary
Ray Ceresino passed away on May 1, 2015, at the age of 86. He was born in Thunder Bay, Canada, on April 24, 1929, to Frank and Emilia Ceresino. He grew up in Thunder Bay and became a professional hockey player for the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Cleveland Barons. On June 2, 1953, he married his lovely wife, Lorraine Giardetti, and they were married for 62 years.
Ray moved his family to California in 1962 and settled in the San Fernando Valley where he had a successful career as a mortgage broker. He had been retired and residing in Carmel Valley for the past 15 years. 
Ray and Lorraine had three children, Lynn Neault, Gayle (Joe) Belch, and Gordon (Mary) Ceresino, all of whom reside in the San Diego area. He had six grandchildren who meant the world to him, Brian, Danielle and Matt Neault, Jessica Ceresino, and Derek (Amelia) and Danny Belch. There was no prouder grandfather as he loved watching all of his grandchildren compete in sports at Torrey Pines High School and college.
Ray never lost his love for sports. He was an avid golfer and his skating skills never left him as he could be seen playing street hockey with his grandkids and skating around the streets of Carmel Valley well into his eighties. He always looked forward to The Ray Ceresino Invitational, an annual golf tournament his son established in honor of his 80th birthday, celebrated by family and close friends. Ray will always be remembered by friends and family for his wonderful personality and the way he made everyone feel when he was around them. He was truly blessed with a special family and friends; he will be loved and missed forever.
He will be laid to rest at El Camino Memorial Park in San Diego on June 2, 2015.
