Father LaPorta was a very special priest to my family and a happy childhood memory. We adored him and missed him greatly since his retirement.

You were a grand man to know. Looking forward to hearing you and Gerald play in Heaven....

Fond memories of Fr. Ross LaPorta at St. Charles Borremeo Parish in Pikesville, MD. I'll never forget the first booming "Ite, Missa est ..." that he sang as co-celebrant #2 at his first high Mass (with Fr. Dan Cummings & Fr. Joe Kitko). And I'll always remember his love of opera; his fondness for new black Pontiac Gran Prix's / GTO's; and his allowing me to caddy for him over 9 holes after I had served him as an altar boy at high funeral Masses on Fridays [The latter raised the eyebrow of my 7th & 8th grade nun, Sr. Maria Assumpta, but ... Oh, well ...]. Fr. Ross was a gentleman who remained proud of HIS father, the barber into his 90's.

Father Laporta was very involved with our CYO baseball team. He would drive us to the games
each week. He was a good man.
