BROOKTON – Dylan Alan Porter, 18, of Brookton was tragically taken from us in a car accident on Jan. 8, 2014. He was born May 16, 1995, to Corey and Marie (Stoddard) Porter.
Dylan attended elementary and middle school at East Range 2 School in Topsfield. He was a senior in the Lee Academy Class of 2014. Dylan, a budding tattoo artist, loved art and drawing, He also loved fishing, camping, spending time with family and friends, and mostly “just goofing off.” His smile and laugh were infectious. He will be missed by all.
Dylan is survived by his parents, Corey and Marie; his very special “Scrappy” little brother, Justin; grandparents, Vinal and Geraldine Porter, Tony and Colleen Stoddard, and June and Peter Stoddard; great-grandfather, “Ole” Tommy Stoddard; and great-grandmother, Jean Gilman. He also leaves behind many aunts, uncles, and special cousins.
A special celebration of Dylan’s life will be held for friends and fellow-students at Lee Academy. A Memorial for friends and family will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 18, at The Danforth Pentecostal Church. The family asks that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to a scholarship in his honor at Lee Academy, 26 Winn Road, Lee ME, 04455. “Although we seem so far apart, You’re always here within our hearts. You filled our lives with joy and pleasure, You were to us a special treasure. A little while shall pass and then, We’ll see each other once again. Loved, remembered and held so dear, In our minds and hearts you’re always here.” Those who wish may sign an online register and leave written condolences at www.clayfuneralhome.com.
