My sympathy and prayers are with the Ceruti family and all connected. I will always remember the respectful young man Dennis was as he studied and competed at Tri-County. He was one of my favorite of all time. The indellible image of the Golden Boot award that I presented him after a game winning field goal for the Cougars has been etched in my memory forever.

My son, David F. Goldberg, went to MHS, class of 1994, w/ Richard. He heard about the death of Dennis (probably through Facebook) and told us of his passing. Your Medway home was right near ours. My sincere condolences on your loss. May he rest in peace. --Bonnie Thibodeau

To the Ceruti family,

My sincere condolences for your loss. I only knew Dennis through his work, but he was always professional, warm and so funny! I enjoyed his stories about coaching soccer for his 4 girls and it was obvious to me that he was a super proud dad, as well as an all-around awesome guy. May fond memories of him help to sustain you all through this difficult time.
