MONROE – Raymond Lafayette Porter Sr., 62, died unexpectedly Jan. 13, 2005, at a Bangor hospital. He was born March 29, 1942, in Bangor, the son of Lloyd Fredrick Porter and Camilla (Estey) Porter of Newburgh. All though he was taken too soon, he lived a full yet humble life. He devoted himself to taking care of his family, which was done wonderfully. He worked as a cook at BMHI for 37 years. Raymond was an incredible cook. He had a real love for being outdoors, whether hunting, fishing, or just sitting out in the fresh air. After retiring he enjoyed gardening with his wife and spending precious time with his family and friends. He will be remembered for his caring ways, his thoughtful advice, his beautiful smile, and the love he filled our hearts with. He will be missed always. Raymond was predeceased by his mother, Camilla (Estey) Porter; his father, Lloyd Fredrick Porter; a sister, Arlene Turner; a brother, Wayne Porter; and a grandson, Brian Lufkin. He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Beverly (Toothaker) Porter of Monroe; four children, Sonya Lufkin of Monroe, Lisa Porter of Hampden, Raymond Porter Jr. of Morrill, and Joni Porter of Belfast; nine very special grandchildren, who made his life incredibly joyful, Elisabeth, Brianna, Brandy, Mckenzie, Tory, Nathanial, Graham, Jeremiah and Kadey Rae; a daughter-in-law, Jessica; and two sons-in-law, Karl and Chris; four sisters, and husbands, Irene and John Chassion of New York, Bunny and Guy Hanson of Monroe, Camilla and Fred Aitken of Belfast and Judy and Mike Ryder of Mass.; and of course, all other special friends and family.

Dick Woehr, officiating. Interment in the springtime will be in Brookside Cemetery, Newburgh. Condolences may be expressed through
