It is with great sadness that the family of Ryan Patrick Desport announces his passing.
Ryan P. Desport, 41, of Latrobe, PA, passed away peacefully, Saturday, July 1, 2023.
He was born October 25, 1981, in Latrobe, the son of Victor S. Desport and Jane E. Cameron.
Ryan was a graduate of Latrobe High School and earned an electrical engineering degree from Triangle Tech. His passion was mechanical things (engines, bikes, etc.) and taking them apart to see how they worked. He could fix anything. Music was another one of his great passions. His favorite song was by Lynyrd Skynyrd “Needle and the Spoon”. Ryan excelled at sports, especially baseball and was a member of the Latrobe Little League and Teener League, where he usually played left field, but was known to be able to play any position. Ryan was a kind, protective soul with a big heart.
Ryan is preceded in death by paternal grandfather Robert E. “Red” Polo, nephew Shine Desport, and paternal step-grandfather Michael Iarussi.
Besides his parents, Ryan is survived by sister Elizabeth Desport; Nephew Liam Desport; paternal grandmother Nancy Polo; maternal grandfather Ronald G. Cameron; step mother Tina Desport; paternal step-grandmother Diane Iarussi; maternal step-grandmother Sookie Cameron; and tons of family and friends who love him and will miss him.
