Bert  Porter Jr.


Bert Porter Jr., 90, Kokomo, went to be with the Lord at 3:07 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2019, at his home. He was born Nov. 27, 1928, in Kokomo, the son of the late Bert and Garnet (Brumfield) Porter, the oldest of three brothers.
After graduating from Kokomo High School in 1947, he served his country as a member of the Army Occupation Forces in post WWII Germany. Meeting the love of his life at Delco Electronics, he married Rose Marie Alder in April of 1952. During nearly 38 years of employment with Delco, he worked and retired as a supervisor in plant security in January of 1993.
In his younger days, he loved to hunt but always enjoyed woodworking, meticulously keeping up his property, and anything outdoors. For 10 years he had the mower business on the side. Until a recent illness, he was an active member of Fair Havens Christian Missionary Alliance Church.
Along with his wife, Rose, Bert is survived by his children, Victor (Audrey) Porter and Sherry (Kevin) McCormack; grandchildren, Adrianne (Fernando) Ochoa, Aaron (Sunshine) Porter, Joshua McCormack, and Caleb McCormack; great-grandchildren, Emily Ochoa, Mateo Ochoa, Nikole Ochoa, Levi Porter, Blaise Porter, Sophia Porter, and Mercy Porter; several precious nieces and nephews, and a very special, newly found niece, Lisa Floyd.
Bert was preceded in death by his parents and brothers, Jim and Gordon.
Funeral services will be 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, 2019, at Fair Havens Christian Missionary Alliance Church, 1216 S. 300 West, Russiaville, with Pastor John Zwirn officiating.
