Craig Boyd Porter Obituary

Born in Houston, Texas, Craig was an avid outdoor sportsman, gun enthusiast, and proud member of the Freemasons.

An expert welder with a gift for management, he was employed for the last decade running a variety of Kern oilfield projects.

Upon moving to California, Craig settled in Bakersfield and met Therese (Zent) Wilson, with whom he happily spent these last many years.

Craig passed away suddenly at home on May 30, 2016.

He is survived by Therese Wilson; sister, Vicky; daughters, Christy and Stephanie; nephew and niece, Robbie and Shelley; and 10 beloved grandchildren.

His outsized personality and genuine friendliness will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

Visitation will be held at Greenlawn Funeral Home, 3700 River Blvd., on Tuesday, June 7, from 4-8 p.m. A chapel service will be held on Wednesday, June 8, at 10 a.m., also at Greenlawn. For condolences please visit: www.greenlawnm-c.com Greenlawn Funeral Home
