August 11, 2012, Joseph Porter Jr., a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, cousin and uncle, spread his wings and joined many loved ones in heaven. He is survived by his beautiful wife of 50 years, Dyllis Porter; daughters and sons-in-law, Nadine and Gary Cline, Heather and Mark Ward and Nicole and Robert Yaggle; his 13 grandchildren, Hilarie, Charlotte, Joseph, Paul, Asher, Elijah, Esther and Eden Cline, Zachary, Brooke and Seth Ward and Logan and Cole Yaggle; and one great-grandchild, Joshua. He is also survived by his brother, Kenneth Porter; and sister, Francine Falconer; and many nieces and nephews. He was a U.S.A.F. Veteran who proudly served his country and lovingly supported his family, having worked for Pan-American Airlines for 25 years and Messer/Air Liquide until his retirement. He taught everyone he met a wise lesson. The world is a better place for having him. We are better people for knowing him. Our loss is Heaven's gain. He will be missed.
