Family-Placed Obituary

STEPHEN LaPORTE Stephen LaPorte, of West Palm Beach, passed away following a brief illness on July 15, 2009, a few months short of his 100th birthday. Born in Paterson, NJ, he moved to Florida after graduation from Manhattan College in New York City in the 1930's and began a long career in the arts as a piano and voice teacher, and as an antique collector and dealer. For many years he was very active in local opera and theater productions. Mr. LaPorte is survived by a niece and nephew, and leaves behind a great many former students in the Palm Beach area who remained in contact with him throughout his lifetime - particularly his dear friends in the Middleton family.
