It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Dennis Porth Sr. on Friday, November 3, 2017 at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital. Dennis was born on November 10, 1957 to Evelyn and Jack Porth. He grew up in Riverton, Manitoba and moved to Fort McMurray, Alberta in 1979 where he met and married his wife, Janice, of 33 years. Dennis is survived by his loving wife, Janice; his four children, Jaime, Bobbi-Lee (Steve), Tonya (Lee), and Dennis Jr.; his nine grandchildren, Coral, Starr, Skye, Honor, Sterling, Cheyenne, Shania, Lee James, and Sadie whom were the loves of his life.

Dennis Porth Sr. was a compassionate, loving man and friend to all. He loved building and rebuilding his bikes and cars and most of all loved hanging with his grandchildren.
