Darryl Porter



It is with profound sadness that we share the news of the peaceful passing of Darryl Porter, with his family at his side, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

Darryl will be lovingly remembered and missed by his wife Anneli (nee Goble); daughter, Lauren; parents, Marylynn and Murray Porter; sister, Dena Ganie; niece, Lisa Ganie; uncle, Edward Staniforth (Gloria Gallant); cousin, Mark Porter; great aunt, Alexandra Goshko; and parents-in-law, Joy and Dennis Goble.

Darryl had a full, albeit too-short, life. He began his professional life with a successful career with Molson Canada. As his love for sports was second to none, his career shifted to sports management when he became owner/partner of teams in the Western Hockey League and later worked for the Oilers Entertainment Group, the Edmonton Eskimos and the Quad City Mallards.

Darryl lived a rewarding professional life, but his true dream and passion was as a dedicated family man. His parents and sister were as much his best-friends as they were family. He and Anneli traveled, played golf, and lived life to the fullest. His best work was as a dedicated and loving father to Lauren, the light of his life. Darryl will be deeply missed by them all; including golden retriever, DJ, who will miss his kind hand.

In honour of Darryl's casual nature and passion for sports, a "Jeans and Jerseys" Celebration of Life will take place at 2:00 p.m., on Monday, August 13, 2018 at Connelly-McKinley, 10011 - 114 Street, Edmonton, Alberta.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Pancreatic Cancer Canada (visit www.pancreaticcancercanada.ca for on-line donations or for mailing information).

In Loving Memory of
Darryl Porter
