Daddy, I know you are in heaven with mom and she is probably giving you hell because you took so long to join her. Enjoy this next part of your life and watch over all of us till we can join you. Thank you for allowing me to be your daughter and guiding me all of these years. I love you dad...more than you ever knew but probably less than you loved me.

Your daughter, Karen
 Condolences to the Sapporito family.  I knew Buddy for years and some of his children when growing up with my 8 sons.  I always liked Buddy and will miss him immensely.  God bless his family.

To the entire Saparito Family. 

 Please accept my sincere sympathy.  Your dad was always very near and dear to my heart.  Even with the distance between our families growing up and now later in life all of you have always remained in my thoughts and prayers.  I see Dave from time to time and he just makes me smile.  He takes me back to those happy summer memories when you would visit Aunt Skipper. Hold all those memories of your dad close and find comfort in knowing that he impacted my life, and the lives of many others in a very positive, special way.

Gina (and Saporito family):
I am so sorry for your loss.  It appears that your Dad lived quite a full, rewarding life.  In the end, that is the most any of us can hope for.  Take care.

I am so very sorry to hear of your father's passing.  Please know that my prayers are with you.  You were a very good daughter to him.  If there is anything I can do - even lend an ear - please call.

I'm so saddened to hear about Buddy's passing. When we were kids, he took great care of me and all of my brothers. I appreciate all that he had done for us in such a positive, inspirational way. Lord, please take care of him since he is now on your team in Heaven.

David W. Myers

I am very sorry to hear that Buddy has passed on.  It has been a very long time since I spoke with him, but remember well his strong character and well-mannered demeanor.
Please know that everyone in the Saporito family is in my heartfelt thoughts and prayers.

Dear Dave & Family,
I am so sorry to hear of the loss off your Father. I know all to well how you feel. Please know that he is at home now with our Lord.  Although I didn't know him, I do remember seeing him at all your wrestling matches cheering you on.  Hopefully knowing that he is with our Lord and Saviour will get you through this sad and sorrowful time. Know that the Rosario Family's thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.  God Bless, Trish Rosario

Dear Saporito Family,

Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.  I know I (and my brothers and sisters) have fond childhood memories when you would all come to visit Aunt Skipper....you were the cousins from far away.  Though a lot of years have passed, those memories still seem like yesterday.  Your Dad was always a special person and with all his accomplishments you can be very proud.  I'm sure there is quite a reunion in heaven today!

To the family. 

 My deepest sympathy in the loss of this great man.  He was the best boss I ever had at Carlisle Barracks and one of the nicest guys I ever met.  He made coming to work a real pleasure.  From time to time I thought about what happened to him and the obituary explained he was in Chester these last 20 years.  I know it's hard having recently lost my mom but let God help you through this difficult grieving period and know he is in a better place.

Steve DiDomenico


Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Frank & Kathy (Losch) Bentley Jr.


Dad, I am glad to see how many lives you touched and how much you will always mean to your kids! I will continue to live my life under your umbrella and raise your Tino to try to be half the man you are. I am certain that you and God will work together to get the best seat in the stadium for Notre Dame games. I will miss talking for hours before each game and reading inspirational notes you have sent to refocus me from time to time! Tino and Holly love you very much and will ask for your guidance from time to time through prayer. I miss you already and love you! So many lessons from you effect me and guide me everyday. I don't question if you will be looking down on me, cause you have been my ANGEL my whole life. Get your rest Dad, you and I are going on a special journey this upcoming season to fulfill your wish. I will make sure your front and center for this game and won't have to worry about a ride home from South Bend. Give grandma a kiss for me and give Nadine, Timmy and Shirley the Bulldog a belly rub!

Baby Whale loves you!!!

Anthony William Saporito


 So sorry for your great loss.  My prayers and condolences to the Saporito family.
