We were saddened to hear about the death of Dave Porter on Nov. 6, 2018, from Lewy body disease. Dave ran track, belonged to Phi Gam and majored in French. He practiced radiology in Boston for many years. Dave considered it a gift that he and his wife, Janet, were able to be at Amherst again as parents of son Tim ’06, who also ran track. Dave was predeceased by daughter Emily. He is survived by Janet, Tim, daughter-in-law Lydia, and grandchildren Elliott and Eliza. We remember David with fondness.
