John Oran Porter

1933 - 2008 Obituary Condolences
John Oran Porter, born April 25, 1933, in Corona has been called home to be with the Lord. John had a short battle with lung cancer.
Born and raised in Corona, John went on and was married three times. Jewel, his first wife, blessed him with three sons, Johnny Jr., Duane and Darrell. His second wife, Wanda, blessed him with two stepchildren, Delfhine and Randy. And at last was Matthew. He was married a third time to Nancy.
He always tried to be the best father, husband and friend he knew to be. John was known for many things during his life; he called himself "Honest John."
John retired from working many years for the telephone company. John always prided himself on doing a job "well done." He loved to work outside, at one point owning and operating Porter's Tomahawk Nursery in Ruidoso.
John is survived by his wife Nancy; his sons Johnny Jr. and his wife Denise of Aztec, Duane of Roswell, Darrell of Bloomfield and Matthew and his wife Holly of Ingram, Texas; a brother, Luke of Corona; sisters, Charlene and Vivian; grandchildren Michelle Dawn, Kathy Lynn and Brendan Paul and nine other grandchildren in Texas.
John was preceded in death by his parents Charlie and Lucille; brothers Wayne, Charles, Pete; sister Dorothy; stepchildren Delphine and Randy; and his first wife, Jewel, and second wife, Wanda.
May we always remember we leave memories that last forever. Dad, we love you and will always hold you high and will love you forever.
