He also leaves his cousins David Cerasuolo of Canton, MA and Amy Lindstrom of Manchester CT. Kevin was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather Robert W. Virtue, his paternal grandmother Mrs. Samuel Cerasuolo and his Uncle Paul Cerasuolo.

Born November 16, 1973 in Charleston SC, Kevin attended his freshman year of high school at Hoggard in Wilmington NC where he played soccer for the Vikings. He completed his final three years at Roswell (GA) High School, graduating in 1993. While there, he won batboy of the year three times. Since returning to Wilmington in 2001, Kevin had volunteered his time and service expecting nothing in return.
Kevin had a true deep passion for baseball and was the volunteer equipment manager for “The Sharks” for 11 years. He also loved all things Naval which was inspired by his Dad’s Navy experience aboard the USS Grant during the Vietnam War era. . Kevin was a member of the Tin Can Sailors Association and a volunteer with the USS North Carolina battleship’s Living History Crew in Wilmington NC.

Employed with the “Slice of Life” pizzeria in downtown Wilmington, Kevin never learned to drive but was fiercely independent, always on the move and on time. He loved to ride the Wilmington buses which helped him maintain his independence and his interests. He knew the bus routes and schedule by heart. He made great contributions of service and kindness from his heart during his brief time with us and will be missed dearly by those who were honored to know him.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to a memorial fund, in Kevin’s honor in care of his brother, Matthew Cerasoulo, 148-C Silverspring Place, Mooresville, NC 28117.

    My deepest sympathies. I'm going to miss him him calling me Lt. Commander Jones onboard the USS NORTH CAROLINA. He loved being on the ship. Farewell, Shipmate.

    I am deeply saddened to hear of Kevin's passing. I went to Roswell High with Kevin. I was the captain of the football team and Kevin was our equipment manager. He was truly a joy to be around. He cared so much about our team and we cared about him. I smile when I think about Kevin. I'm sure he brought joy to everybody he met in life. I am sorry for your loss. His family is in my thoughts and prayers.

    I just learned the sad news of Kevin's untimely passing. I was proud to call Kevin my "shipmate" as part of the USS North Carolina Living History Crew. That time was entirely too brief but I will always remember his ready smile, hearty laugh and willingness to lend a hand in whatever needed to be done. My prayers go out to his family at this time. Fair winds and following seas, dear shipmate.
