Location: Orlando, Florida

This memorial was created in honor of Jack Edwin Porter of Orlando, Florida. Jack was born on March 16, 1929 in Akron, OH and passed on January 3, 2017 in Orlando. Jack was loved by many and will be dearly missed by all friends and family. He will be laid to rest in Rhea County, Spring City, TN where he will be reunited with his long since deceased wife, Maxine.

As a young man, Jack served his country in the U.S. Air Force & went on to work as a U.S. Navy Civilian until he was forced into retirement by his wife's illness. He was married to Maxine T. Porter who passed many years ago after battling multiple illnesses.
Together they created a family consisting of two biological sons, one biological daughter & then raised their first granddaughter as their own.

Jack Porter was a man of Great Honor, Integrity, Intelligence, Strength, Wit, Heart & was Loved by all who knew him. He was a guy with a Big Presence and if he was in the room, everyone was aware! Jack commanded both attention & respect without having to try because the cloth he was cut from was so very evident!

He was a self-made man who built his life through sheer will, determination & perseverance which can't be said for most in this day. He was a very generous soul who took care of those he loved & was charitable to causes he believed in.

He will be Deeply Missed, Cherished and Never a day forgotten! Jack's humor and zeal for life will carry-on with those who knew him best.

May you pilot through the Heavens at mach-speed as you dreamed of doing on earth and all our hearts will be traveling your jet-stream until we join you.
