Vic Porter was a kind and gentle man, who extremely cared for his family, friends, employees and just about everyone who crossed his path. I had the pleasure of knowing him for over 45 years and he always had time to say hello.
He was a wonderful family man himself, but he also made sure to ask about our family and have a personal conversation as well. I counted him as a friend, and we even shared the same birthday – February 3rd.
Vic built an incredible team at Formula over the years, creating thousands of extremely high-quality boats and yachts that will be enjoyed for many years to come by his loyal customers.
He was also responsible over his tenure in the industry for shaping numerous lives and countless employment opportunities. As Power Boating Canada’s Publisher Bill Taylor says, “Victor was an inspiration to the world and his passion in promoting the boating lifestyle will leave an imprint on the entire team here at Power Boating Canada and Poker Runs America, as well as the audience of our readers forever.”
The Formula team was and still is very special to me and our family.
Arlene and I are thinking of the entire Porter family in this time of sadness.
He was a very special person and we are proud to have known him.
