PORTER, Frederic Liam Andrew – Sadly passed away on June 11, 2015 in his 50th year.

Liam is survived by his wife and best friend of 24 years Marta; daughters Gabrielle and Melissa; parents Antoinette and Bill; brothers Robert (twin), Ronald, and David as well as many loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Liam was a loving husband, father, son, uncle and friend to all.

In his work, Liam was a high achiever, amazing leader, supportive mentor; but most importantly, he was a genuinely caring friend to every single person he interacted within and outside of work. His loved ones will especially miss him, and will never forget him.

Memorial donations may be made online in Liam’s name to the Soldier On Fund (Support Our Troops), part of the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services.


In honour of Liam and his family, there will be a post church-service reception held at CFB Kingston – Vimy Officers’ Mess (VOM) from 1:00 – 3:00PM (Finger foods served, cash bar available).
