Rotary Three Bell Service - Jud Porter
April 25, 1931 - November 22, 2014
Rotarian since December 15, 1987. Sponsored by John Hoffman.

Jud passed at midnight while listening to his favorite "Willie Nelson" with sons Tom and Jud,Jr. at his side.  Peggy, Jud's wife, said: "as they pushed him onto the elevator to move to hospice, he gave me a big wink."


Jud's smile was contagious. His attitude always positive.

Cared about others, picking up Rotarians who couldn't get to weekly meetings. 

Guarded the ROTARY/One Archives, he and Peggy cataloged and moved the Rotary offices from the CAA with tender care and was instrumental in saving Room 711.

He loved his Cubbies; generously inviting friends to join him at games, meeting at Jessie's Wrigleyville North corner bar ahead of time.  However, as much as he was dedicated to Rotary, we could never convince him to go to the Rotary Night at the Chicago White Sox!

He is a role model of the gentle in gentleman.

Jud a true Rotarian, never about self.

It'a not good bye Jud, only Til' Then. 

We will gather at a Rotary Roundtable and share a glass, a story, a laugh and an eternal friendship.

Thank you Jud Porter for your fellowship and service.
