May 27, 1949 - February 12, 2018
Mr. Wayne Porter, beloved husband of the late Susan Porter (nee Romberg) of Nanton, Alberta passed away peacefully at the High River Hospital on February 12, 2018 at the age of 68 years. Wayne is survived by two loving daughters, Lindsay Porter of Nanton and Jodie (Byron) Wehlage of Milk River; Granddaughters who were the sunshine to his life, Brylee Wehlage (6) and Kinlee Wehlage (4); brother Gerald (Diana) Porter of Nanton; sister Judy Poeschel of Mississauga, ON. He loved his many nieces and nephews and was kindly thought of as a “surrogate” uncle to many of the young people he had in his life. He will also be lovingly remembered by his special friend Linda Ormson of High River. Besides his loving wife of 40 years, Susan, Wayne was predeceased by his parents Norman and Margaret. By trade Wayne was a mechanic, which he worked at for many years until retiring and becoming Susan’s main care giver. Anyone who knew him knew that he was amazing at working with his hands: very skilled at carpentry, mechanical repairs, had a green thumb that would make most gardener’s jealous and was able to fix just about anything. He loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing and wild life. He loved being surrounded by family, friends, and his two granddaughters would always make him smile. He enjoyed when friends would gather, engage in a beverage and share stories. Wayne loved to laugh. A Celebration of Wayne’s Life was held on Friday, February 23rd at 1:00 p.m. at the Nanton-Parkland United Church. If desired memorial donations may be made to the Nanton-Parkland United Church (2121 21st. St, Nanton, Ab, T0L 1R0) or the charity of the donor’s choice.
