A memorial service and burial of the cremains of Franklin Grant Porter will be held at a later date. Frank, 90, died Feb. 18 at Bonnie Bluejacket Memorial Nursing Home.
He was born Dec. 23, 1923, in Douglas, the son of Marion Grant and Queen Marie Tainter Porter. He lived most of his life on the Porter farm north of Greybull.
Frank was always around town with a smile on his face and a story for all who would listen to it. Frank mostly got around by walking place to place until his later years when he had to depend on his wheelchair.
Frank was preceded in death by his parents, Marion Grant “Cy” and Queen Marie Porter; two sisters, Louise Porter Farley and Janice Porter Hughes, and four brothers, Robert Porter, John Porter, Bruce Porter and Larry Porter.
