We Remember

PORTER, Donald Graham “Don”

October 2, 1949 — March 28, 2024

It is with immense love and sadness that we announce the loss of Donald Porter, who passed away peacefully on March 28, 2024, at the age of 74.

Don goes to join those who went before him, including his beloved wife, Linda. Left to treasure his memory are his children Kelly Porter, Jason Porter, and Tanya Golpin; grandchildren Zachary Porter, Payton Porter, and Hailey and Brayden Galpin; son-in-law Kyle Galpin; daughter-in-law Cheryl Johnston; as well as his siblings, Sharon Black and Daryl Porter.

Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta to Donald and Jacueline Porter, Don was one of eight children. He was an avid sports fan, obtaining championship status in Flag Football (Canadian Championship), and then spending most of his winters coaching youth hockey. Don’s summer passion was golf, and most recently, Pickleball.

Don is remembered for his generosity and kindness, as he spent many years on the strata corporation of Sonoma Pines, making the lives of its residents that much easier. He was a loving husband, caring father and grandfather, and good friend to many. Don will forever be held in the hearts of those whose lives he touched.

A Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, April 4, 2024, at 1:00 PM, located at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC, with Clair Jantzen officiating. There will be a reception to follow.
