PORTER, Ernest Ralph

It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of the passing of a truly wonderful and accomplished man on September 15, 2019 in Guelph, Ontario at the age of 88.
He was the beloved husband and partner to Mary Evelyn Porter for 62 years and the devoted and much loved father to daughter Rhonda Porter and son Roy Porter.
A grandfather (Papap) to his two grandchildren Kyle and Morgan who brought untold joy to his life.
Ralph was born in Montreal on November 12, 1930 to Wilfred Royston Porter and Hilda Myerscough. He is survived by his brother John (Colette) Porter and predeceased by brothers Ken (Marie), Ron and George Porter.
He will be missed by his Brothers’ in law Daniel, William (Bud) and Victor Wells and their families and by his many nieces and nephews. He will be lovingly remembered by Bruce, Jamie and Kenny Porter.
Ralph was a Korean War veteran, entrepreneur and passionate sports enthusiast. He spent his career working in the airfreight transportation industry founding his own business at the age of 50. His success was built on hard work, honesty and integrity. The cornerstones of his life.
Ralph will long be remembered for his incredible sense of humor, wit and charm.
His smile and laughter will be forever carried in the hearts of those who loved and knew him.
His loss will be felt by his cherished friends and family in Montreal, Guelph and around the world.

Our family spent many special holidays with Uncle Ralph and Aunt Evelyn and family when I was growing up. I will never forget how kind and gracious Uncle Ralph was to my family and I. He always made us feel so welcome and special when we showed up at his door. I couldn’t wait to hear the latest family stories about Ralph’s most recent antics and escapades, and his incredible sense of humour always brought a smile to my face. After I was married, that same kindness and generous was extended to my wife Jamie and son Kenny. I will never forget this. We will really miss this gentle and loving man. Our condolences to Evelyn, Rhonda, Roy and extended families.
Bruce, Jamie, and Kenny Porter.
