I was born and raised in Redwood City CA. At an early age I became interested in cars, and knew that’s what I wanted to do as a career, Working closely with my Father was a great pleasure. Now I have the privilege of working with My son Tyler. I have two adult children Tyler, Jenna and a chocolate lab named Bailey. I now live in Morgan Hill Ca and love it. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. My hobbies include Hunting/Fishing, Motorcycle riding, 4 Wheeling adventures and during the Summer spending time on the water.

Tyler Cerrone

My name is Tyler Cerrone, Frank Cerrone’s son and third generation technician at Cerrones European. I spent my childhood summers sweeping floors and holding flashlights for my Dad while he worked on cars knowing one day that could be me. Out of high school I took four great years of Automotive training at Deanza college every weekday until noon then drove to the shop and finished my day applying what I learned on cars. This is my tenth year working full time as a tech at the shop and the learning has never stopped. In 2022 I became part owner of the shop and now work as an owner and service advisor. I spend my most of my weekends outdoors either Hunting, Dirtbiking or spending time with my family. I live a very full life and am blessed to have my beautiful wife Christina by my side who is my best friend and the love of my life. I look forward to all the years to come and maybe one day bringing a fourth generation Cerrone into our family business!

I grew up in Sacramento, CA surrounded by car and motorcycle enthusiasts. I graduated from the DeAnza College Automotive Technology program in 2014 and completed service advisor training soon afterward. I love cars and helping people take good care of them. I spend my spare time cooking, gardening, and playing ball with my big dog, Vaughn.



I was born and raised in East Palo Alto ca. I now live in Redwood City CA. I am 1 out of 5 children. My father is a mechanic, and I decided to follow in his footsteps at an early age and became an automotive technician. It brings me joy knowing I can help others with what I have learned along the way. I’m fortunate to be called dad by my awesome children, Matthew, Valentina, and Vidalia.

I spend my free time teaching my children everything I’ve learned in life. I enjoy woodworking, hiking, and being a father.
