Professor Nicholas Cerio
It is with great sorrow that I inform you that Grand-Master Professor Nick Cerio
passed away yesterday, Wednesday October 7, 1998, at Kent hospital in Rhode
Island. He had sircome to cancer, and was 62. He was surrounded by family,
friends and his Black Belts at the time of his passing and was not alone.
Professor Cerio was much more then a Martial Arts instructor, to many
he was a symbol of strength and integrity, mentor, inspiration and friend;
and to his Black Belts a second father. Professor Cerio accomplished in one
life time what would take others many generations. He was loved and respected
by all who know him. Professor Cerio has touched thousands throughout his
many years of teaching, and will be greatly missed. -Sensei Paul J. Micciche
