Bill Porter of Indian Trail, NC passed away at his home on April 15, 2024. Mr.
Porter graduated from Hartsell High School where he was active in football,
basketball, and baseball. After high school he enlisted in the United States Air

He was an avid sports fan and loved to go to Arkansas Razorback games. He
followed his daughter all over the state to watch her play softball. After he
moved to North Carolina, he switched to watching his grandson and
granddaughter play soccer and basketball.
He dearly loved his family and his friends, and he never met a stranger. He was a
member of McGill Baptist church and worked the concession stand at the UNCC
basketball games and volunteered for their annual barbeques.
Mr. Porter was preceded in death by his parents (Monroe and Lillie Porter), three
brothers (Johnny, Tex, and Marvin Porter), three sisters (Mamie Beaver, Coleen
Lefler, and Faye Newell), and his son (Michael Porter).

beloved grand dog (Punkin), his many nieces and nephews, his daughter-in-law,
his grandchildren, his great grandchild, his brother (Robert Porter), his family, his
extended family, and the best neighbors ever.
