I graduated high school with Kenny and have many happy memories of having fun just hanging out with him. I always enjoyed running into him from time to time and reminiscing about the good ole' days. Keeping his family in my heart & prayers and sending my sincere condolences. Years ago, I too lost my brother way too soon.

Porter family. Thinking of you and praying for each of you these days. That "Porter" smile was always on Kenny's face since the day I first saw him fifty-some years ago. What a sweet spirit. Rest well, old friend. John C Parsley
