It is with the heaviest of hearts the Porter children announce the passing of their dad, grandpa, great-grandpa, and great-great-grandpa, Carmen A. Porter aka “Trapper” surrounded with the love of his children.  He celebrated a fulfilled life in his 89th year. An end of an era.  Born on October 2, 1932. Dad began his journey peacefully January 30, 2021 to be once again reunited with his greatest love our Momma…Dad has left behind a great legacy of love which included 9 children and their families to carry on so many family traditions. He had a love of sports.  Dad was well known on both sides of the border for the various sports he played.  He was well-respected and revered.  Dad made many lifelong friendships participating on softball teams IBC Jet Broomball, Porter Snowsnake, hockey, and lacrosse.  Later, he enjoyed playing golf with his buddies alongside his ringer grandson.  He was also a very proud International Plowmen champion, and an avid Toronto Maple Leaf fan.  He later became his family’s biggest fan supporting, cheering, and offering his professional advice.  He was a trucker driving a big rig until retirement at 70 yrs.  Predeceased by his loving wife Eleanor, parents Walter & Muriel Porter, son Wayne, granddaughters Kirsten, baby Taylor, and Kylie.  His legacy lives through his loving children Kathy & Rod, Terry, Garry & Donna, Jannie, Bill & Brenda, Shelley & Sonny, Kelly & Neale, and Jody.  Survived by many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins.  Also survived by brothers Victor (Glenda), John, Wood, and sisters Helen and Sheila (Dave).  Will be greatly missed by his special Wednesday crew members.  Dance the Carmen shuffle.  The family will honour his life with a visitation at Styres Funeral Home on Monday, February 1, 2021 from 6-7 pm. (must schedule a time by calling 905-768-5733). Followed by a private family service.

Sending our condolences to Kathy and Rod and the whole families. He was a friendly, happy person always said hello to us. He had many conversations with my husband Cecil, usually at the restaurant having breakfast with his wife. Cherish him with your memories. From Bonnie and Cecil Davis and families.
