In Loving Memory Of

Andrew Simon Porter


Andrew Simon Porter, resident of Grande Prairie, formerly of High Level, AB, passed away on Friday, September 7, 2018, at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, at the age of 54 years.

Andy was born August 5, 1964 in St. John’s, NL, and moved to High Level, AB in 1980. In 2011, he moved to Grande Prairie and worked for Jenn Trucking until his passing.
