My sincere condolences to the Porter family. Dr. Porter was my obstetrician many years ago and delivered my daughter. A truly caring man and gifted practitioner. May God now welcome him in to his loving embrace and comfort you in the difficult days ahead.

I was very lucky to spend a large part of my childhood with the “Porters”….My parents were best friends with them…and there was never a dull moment…they laughed together for many years. I feel my life was so enriched to have been a part of Chuck’s life!! He was a Dr. to all of us… including our pets!! We vacationed with them…and I would have no one other than him deliver both of my children. Here’s to you Chuck…hope you and my parents are up stairs laughing as you always had when you were together!! God gained an angel!!! We will miss you my friend… Love you Sarah, Kim, Barbara, and Kersten

Chuck was a truly amazing person. In adddition to being an awesome friend to us, a caring and dedicated doctor to his patients, he was a devoted family man. He had many passions in life, but the two that truly stand out were practicing medicine and spending time with his wonderful family. It is impossible to count how many people Chuck helped during his lifetime, but he is loved and appreciated by all who were fortunate to know him. We will miss our fun times together over the years and I can’t begin to think about how we will continue without him. Our prayers go out to Sarah, Kim, Kersten and Barbara and those beautiful grandchildren. It is said that “to live in the hearts of others is to never die.” Chuck, my friend you will live forever in our hearts.
