John W. Ebert, known to several generations of alumni from the College and from St. Thomas Seminary, Louisville, died sometime around the mid part of July. He was found dead in his apartment July 24 and had apparently died of a heart attack about two weeks previously.

A six-year man at St. Charles College and at St. Mary’s, he was ordained May 19, 1951, for the Archdiocese of Baltimore as a Sulpician candidate. He was first assigned to St. Charles College, from 1951 to 1960, where he taught religion, Latin, Greek and French.

His last Sulpician assignment before he withdrew from the Society and the priesthood in 1973 was a return assignment to St. Charles College. There, he again taught religion, Latin, Greek, and German from 1960 until he went on a leave of absence in 1972. Since withdrawing from the Society and the priesthood in 1973, he had been on the faculty of Holy Spirit School, Baltimore.

A Mass of Christian Burial was offered for him in the St. Charles College chapel October 11, with Father William J. Lee, S.S., as the principal concelebrant and Father Ross A. LaPorta, a Baltimore classmate of John Ebert, as homilist. Burial, after cremation, was in the Sulpician cemetery on the grounds of St. Charles College.

Death notice placed in St. Mary’s Seminary Alumni Bulletin, Spring 1990.
