Obituary

Porteous; "Jack" John Arthur

Surrounded by family at Grey Bruce Health Services, Markdale on Wednesday, November 4, 2020 of Markdale in his 95th year. Predeceased by his beloved wife Janet (1998). Loving father of Elaine(Don) McLean of Maxwell, Shay(Doug) McFadden of Markdale, Joan(Tom) Ivison of Nova Scotia, Robert(Gayle) of Flesherton, Leo(Heather) of Maxwell, Nancy(James) Worster of Maine, USA, and Laurie. Survived by 14 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren. Jack is predeceased by parents Arthur and Bertie as well as sister Laura Talbot.

Jack was born in Osprey Township on October 4 1926. He was the best story teller with his excellent memory and ability to make the circumstances alive, along with his witty sense of humour. Farming was in his blood and he and Janet raised their family at Rock Mills. He was always proud of his Oliver 88. For the last thirty years he gardened at his home in Markdale right up to this past summer. It was his enjoyment to supply his many friends with his vegetables.

The family will receive friends at Fawcett Funeral Cremation Reception (1 Highland Drive, Flesherton) on Sunday, November 8, 2020 from 2-4pm. Family members unable to attend due to COVID-19 will be available via virtual communication. Funeral service from the chapel on Monday, November 9, 2020 at 1pm. Should anyone wish, memorial donations to Gentle Shepherd Community Church would be greatly appreciated.

We were playing cards at their house in Flesherton and a big record snowstorm blew in We had to stay over nite and didn’t get home till the next afternoon by snowmobile. We all had a good time regardless of the weather.

I have known the Porteous family for a long time.........from when my dad used to get a boar from Jack for our sows, in the 1970s and probably before then. So sorry for the loss of your dad, Rob, Joan, Nancy, Shay, Elaine, Leo, Laurie.
