Peter leaves a brother, Mark Porter and sister-in-law Agnes Porter of Owen Sound, and several nephews. Peter had been pre-deceased by his brother, David Porter. Peter was the son of Ivah and “Moose” Porter who had been strong advocates for Peter and very supportive of his life at Daybreak. They welcomed many assistants to their home in Kilaloo, Ontario, and later to Ivah’s apartment in Ottawa. Ivah had visited Daybreak every Christmas for many years, and she moved to Richmond Hill to spend the last few years of her life in the 1990s.
Peter’s life was a pure gift that he shared freely and generously. As one of the L’Arche masters, Peter’s spirit will give life for generations to come.
With gratitude for all the people who knew and loved Peter,
~ Carl MacMillan
