Tribute to Alf Porter

Alf Porter is now at peace and joined again with his beloved wife Daphne (Daph).

Alfred (Alf) William Porter passed away in the Chermside hospital after a short illness on the 18th of June 2021, just 10 days after his 93rd birthday.

Alf, Daph and their three children, Diane, Donald, and Wendy, moved to Bribie Island in 1966 to manage the Co-Op store just metres away from the jetty. Although Alf’s trade was mainly as a Grocer over the decades, he worked in various positions including the Bribie Island retirement village as a gardener and maintenance person, Lacey’s grocery store and newsagents. He also supplied shop owners and locals with fresh fruit and vegetables. As keen lovers of indoor bowls, both Alf and Daph introduced this sport to the locals in the late 1960s. He also supported many charities throughout the years.

Alf will be sadly missed by many!
