Sandy and I would like to pass along our sincerest condolences. Mr. Cerilli gave me my first opportunity to teach and coach football at the high school level. He was there with us when the team won the WPIAL championship in the mid seventies. I have often thought of him and Jane and I credit them for my successful 45 year career as an educator (eventually a high school principal and assistant superintendent). He was an exceptional administrator who was appreciated by his staff and students. He will be missed.

My deepest condolences to the family of Mr. Cerilli. I have only known Mr. Cerilli a couple of years and we talked maybe a handful of times, but I will truly miss him. He was a man that left life changing impressions on me every time we talked. I thank God for allowing me to meet and interact with such a great man.

I am deeply saddened in learning of Tony's passing. As a young newly wed, we rented off of Tony & Jane. I got to know Tony and really enjoyed his company, he was as kind and thoughtful a man that anyone could imagine. His little hide away was a garage in the back of our house and I used to spend a lot of time talking and learning from him. He will be deeply missed, Our prayers go out to Jane & the family, may God bless you all.

I am so sorry for your loss. He was a wonderful man. He definitely was responsible for so so many of us becoming respectful adults. He was stern but fair, and it made us better people. It's hard to lose someone we love but we know that he will be welcomed into the Lord's loving arms. Where someday you will be joined again. Hold on to your wonderful memories. God Bless.

I have so much respect for Mr. Cerilli, he had the ability to meet students on their level without judging them. He truly was the example of what a principal should be. I am sorry for the family's loss. May the Lord welcome him with open arms.
