I met Peter on our trip to Normandy in 2011. He had a huge impact on me in such a short time. Such a great man. He will be missed. I'll cherish the memories of our trip forever. God bless.
In the years since the trip, we would message each other on occasion and talk about our beloved Dallas Cowboys and life in general.
I was lucky enough to have Mr. Porter as a professor at Seton Hall last year and to say it was a pleasure is an understatement. Always looked forward to going to class and talking about the Cowboys with him. A truly amazing teacher and person. He will be sincerely missed but he certainly leaves behind a wonderful legacy. His family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers.
Nina and I had the pleasure of meeting Peter through the National History Day Competition. We will forever remember each time a winner was called out because we would jokingly look at each other (Almost every time) and say "And the winning entry was from.....Montville H.S. under guidance of Mr. Peter Porter!" We will miss him and will definitely be thinking of a big presence that will be missed at this year's competition. Your family will be in our prayers here at School of Government & Public Administration at Eastside High School in Paterson.
Deepest condolences to your family. May you forever rest in peace. Thank you for your years of service at MTHS. Our community will truly miss you!

We are greatly saddened by the loss of Mr. Porter.My son met him first as his golf team coach and by participating in National History Day. Mr. Porter was a special teacher, he was the type of teacher you would hope your child would have in their educational career. He was more than a kind soul, he was an extraordinary person who always took the time to say hello and see how your day was going. We were very blessed to have such a great teacher in our district, and he will be so greatly missed! My condolences to his family.
The most influential, kind, and devoted person I have had the honor of knowing. The past three years of being with him in the classroom and on the golf team are three years that I will cherish every day. Rest in peace, Mr. Porter. You will be so dearly missed
What a great teacher and great guy. Always willing to help and not afraid to joke around. I ate countless lunches in his classroom as he enjoyed hanging out with some of his favorite students during his own personal time. Although he always did no how to have a good time, while keeping others egos in check. RIP to a great man, caretaker, teacher and friend!
Rest in peace.
Mr. Porter will always be one of my favorite teachers. He was always there for his students, was always supportive, and knew how to make people laugh. He will be dearly missed by everyone who knew him. Rest easy, Mr. P
I had Mr. Porter my freshman year and every year after he was a constant in my life. He truly cared about not only myself, but all his students. I will never forget his room and how much his lively and loving spirit filled the space--a presence that no one else could or will ever achieve. You will be missed by not only me, but every other MTHS student whose heart you've touched. Thank you.
Thank you for being an amazing teacher and an even better friend and mentor.
Amazing teacher, friend, and person. Incredibly blessed to have had you as a teacher. Thank you for always making me laugh and being so supportive. Rest In Peace xo
May Mr. Porter rest in peace. He was a very special teacher and mentor.
