Richard A. Cerruti Obituary
February 15, 1941 - January 31, 2018 Dr. Richard Cerruti died peacefully surrounded by family on 1/31/18, after a two-year battle with multiple myeloma. Born 2/15/41, Richard grew up in the Bay Area, graduated UC Berkeley and then UCSF Medical School. After serving as a U.S. Air Force Captain and flight surgeon, Richard settled in Orange County and practiced urology for forty years. During his career, he served as Chief of Staff of Mission Hospital, Delegate to the California Medical Association, Member of the American Urological Society, and advocate for countless patients. Richard's family came first and he was a devoted father, husband, brother, grandfather, and friend. He was a walking encyclopedia who was curious about everything, and he passed his contagious love of knowledge onto his children, grandchildren, and anyone else who wanted to listen. We will miss him dearly and he will forever be our Pops. Richard is survived by his wife Charlotte; sister Kathleen Cerruti; children Terese, Stephanie, Robb, and Katie; children-in-law Tony, Damian, and Jodie; and grandchildren Ryan, Emily, Lia, Trevor, Jacqueline, Lucca, Julian, and Lauren. His family is immensely thankful for the loving and thoughtful care provided by Dr. Jason Liauw, Dr. George Miranda, and all of the angelic nurses at Mission Hospital. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, 2/10/18 at 11:00am at St. Edward's Catholic Church in Dana Point. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to 'IMO Richard Cerruti- Mission Hospital Cancer Institute', Mission Hospital Foundation, 27700 Medical Center Road, Mission Viejo, CA 92691.
