Obituary

Calais - Todd Porter, 47, passed away Monday June 8th, 2020 at Calais Hospital after an ongoing battle with liver disease. Todd was born in Calais, son of David Porter Sr. and Teresa (Jobson) Porter.

Todd had a love of cars and a natural ability to learn hands on. He learned to be a mechanic on his own as well as at JD Thomas and then O’Briens. His real love and true ability came to light when he learned to paint at Dicenzo’s. He also worked at Moore’s Auto Body and Cianbro but realized he didn’t like heights and being away from home. That was when he convinced his father to build the garage in the backyard and he started working on his own. He did lots of mechanic work, but his talent shined when it came to painting, especially old cars being restored. He even restored Ronald McDonald for McDonalds! That garage was definitely his favorite place to be and it became the neighborhood hangout and great place to converse and have a few beverages. Todd was a volunteer firefighter when he was old enough but his fear of heights changed his mind on that path. He was also a member of the Lions club for a short time with his best friend Billy Townsend. Todd never fully recovered from the passing of Billy and went down the wrong path for quite a few years but had to hit rock bottom to recover which he did all on his own. Unfortunately, the damage to his body was too much for him to handle. He fought so very hard for a couple years and still stayed clean even though he was in pain every day. He could have very easily gone backwards again but he didn’t! He was a very special, hardworking, kind man who would help anyone and he was taken much too soon.

Todd was predeceased by his father David Porter Sr. and his best friend Billy Townsend. He is survived by his mother Teresa Porter of Ellsworth, daughters Briana Johnston and her husband Tyler, grandson Carter and granddaughter Rae Lynn of Carmel, step-daughter Stephanie McCartney and husband Jarred of Brewer; daughter BJ Moholland and her mother Tina Moholland of Robbinston; sister Lorraine Klug and her husband Lee; niece Amanda Klug of Blue Hill; Brother David Porter Jr. and his wife Dana of Alexander; nephew Austin Porter and his wife Brooke of Alexander; niece Lacey Porter of Alexander; his partner Sarah Beek; ever faithful companion dog Daisy; childhood neighbor and friend Dan Leavitt and many special cousins, aunts and uncles, and friends. RIP TODD. WE LOVE YOU!

In keeping with Todd’s wishes, there will be no services. A family gathering will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Todd’s memory may be made to the Calais Fire Dept, PO Box 413, Calais, ME 04619. Arrangements by Mays Funeral Home, Calais & Eastport.
