Jeffrey Cerreta Obituary

Jeffrey "Jeff" Michael Cerreta, a beloved husband, father, grandfather and resident of Galion, passed away on December 5, 2023, at the age of 64. He was born on November 4, 1959, to the late, Louis Anthony Cerreta, Jr, and his surviving mother, Joyce “June” (Lowery) Cerreta.

Jeff will be dearly missed by his loving spouse, Linda (Eldridge) Cerreta.  Jeff and Linda met in 2004 and have been together these past nineteen years. Together, they shared countless cherished memories and built a strong bond that will endure beyond his passing.

In addition to his wife, Jeff is survived by his son, Clinton Michael Cerreta of Tampa, FL, his daughter, Casey Lauren Cerreta of Akron, and his four grandchildren: Galilee Cerreta, Noelle Cerreta, Chloe Cramer, Calvin Cramer; his stepmom, Donna Cerreta of Massillon, his two brothers, Jerry (Luann) Cerreta of Uniontown, Joel Cerreta of Canton, his two sisters, Dee Harris of Canton and Deb McMann of Akron, his two step brothers, Mike Connors of Massillon, Jeff Connors of Coldwater, MI, and his step sister, Michelle Connors of Massillon.

Jeff graduated from St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Louisville, Class of 1978.  Jeff attended Ashland University for two years where he played football for the Ashland Eagles.  He then obtained his bachelor’s degree in science in business administration/marketing from Akron University in 1983.  Being a man of many talents, Jeff pursued many careers in life.  He worked in sales, steel mill and other manufacturing industries.  Jeff retired from Artic Cat in Bucyrus. He recently became a medical transport driver.


Jeff will forever be remembered for his zest for life and his ability to make people laugh with a joke or two.   His family, especially the grandchildren, was everything to Jeff.  May his spirit continue to inspire us to live each day to the fullest and appreciate our family and friends. His passion for all kinds of music and movies captured the depth of emotions and inspired those who had the privilege of knowing him. Jeff enjoyed landscaping around the house, and always had some kind of project to complete.
