Obituary

Porter; Victor Frank ‘VIC’
July 1, 1951 (Dominion Day, NOT Canada Day!) - October 15, 2020

Vic left this world knowing, without a doubt, that he was deeply loved by Val, his wife and best friend of 40 years. Vic passed-away at University Hospital, London, in his 70th year after a courageous and determined fight with complications that followed brain cancer surgery. He will be remembered as the brother of Glenda (Blake) Chappelle of North Bay, Ken (Mary) of Parry Sound, Leo of Calgary, AB (who Vic enjoyed chatting with over the phone) as well as many nieces, nephews, co-workers, acquaintances, neighbours and his cousin Jim. Vic is the cherished son in-law of George and Beryl Atchison of Caledon East and brother in-law of Keri (Grant) Porter of Orangeville, Vicki (John) Kidd of Markdale and Craig Atchison (Toronto). Vic was predeceased by his parents Earl and Norma Porter, brothers Bob and Carl, sister Anne Somerville and his lifelong friend Gary Barnes.

Vic was an avid NASCAR fan as well as a spectator and participant at local short track speedways. Vic loved being outdoors, cutting grass, blowing snow and having bonfires. He loved animals and animals loved him (especially his dog Finn and cats Bobalou, Freckles, Shadow Isobel and Toni Grace). Vic was a country boy at heart and enjoyed being called ‘Farmer Vic’ by his friend Stevie. He had a passion for music, especially Classic Rock and identified with the song ‘Sunny Days’ by Lighthouse. Anyone who knew him knew of his endless sense of humour which was appreciated by the outstanding medical staff who cared for him. He never missed an opportunity to crack a joke or throw out a pun. Vic was a rough carpenter and single-handedly build numerous structures over his lifetime. He liked to work alone and clearly stated the best way for anyone to help him was to “stand back five feet”. At the beginning of his illness Vic managed to complete a bird house requested by his mother-in-law. Maybe one of these days the birdhouse will finally be placed by the window it was built for! As much as Vic was very social when out and about, he was a homebody who cherished solitude and silence. Long term family and friends will speak to Vic’s incredible memory and ability to recall events and details from well into his past.

At Vic's request, there will be no service held. (He stood 6 feet 5 inches tall but preferred to keep a low profile.) Vic has been cremated and will be laid to rest in the spring at St. James Cemetery in his hometown of Caledon East.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to Vic’s favourite charity, the War Amps Foundation(which can be made through their website https://www.waramps.ca/ways-to-give/donate/) would be gratefully appreciated. Online donations and condolences at www.fawcettfuneralhome.ca 888-924-2810.

We have known Vic for many years and he always seemed to be of the same sweet temperament every time we met. His dedication to those with whom he worked at SEGSS was beyond challenge.
Sincere sympathy to you, Val, at this sad and difficult time.
