Alexander - Austin David Porter, 26, left us on Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022, as the result of a Motor Vehicle Accident. Austin was born in Calais ME on January 15, 1996, to his parents David and Dana Porter of Alexander, ME.
Austin graduated from Calais High School in 2014. He played soccer all four years which he loved. After high school he went to WCCC for Automotive Technology while working at O’Reilly’s. He then decided to go out and try his hand at welding and was hired on at Cianbro. He gained great friends and made memories that nobody could forget. After traveling for four years, he met Brooke Clark and they traveled for another year together while he worked. After this time Austin took a job at Woodland Pulp to be closer to home and Austin and Brooke were married on August 31st, 2019, in Eastport ME. Austin started his own business “Porter Mobile Welding and Fabrication” which he successfully ran and put his everything into. During those two years Austin and Brooke welcomed their daughter Emersyn “CHEWY” Porter. She was her daddy's pride and joy.
Austin made friends everywhere he went. He spent his time welding and with his two girls. Austin had a rough and tough demeanor but the people who really knew him knows he'd take the shirt off his back or give his last penny he had to someone who needed it.
