Obituary

Michael lived in Salem, VA, with his only sister, Linda. His smile will be dearly missed.

He is survived by his sister, Linda Faye Porter; brothers, Edgar C. Porter, Thomas Wayne Porter, William David Porter, and James Herbert Porter; and numerous family and friends.
A funeral service will be conducted at 2 p.m. on Thursday, July 9, 2020, at the John M. Oakey & Son Funeral Home in Salem. Burial will follow at Blue Ridge Memorial Gardens in Roanoke, VA.

I was saddened to hear of Mike's passing. He was a dear friend. We had many good times, including dancing at our favorite honky-tonk and other shenanigans! A sincere Thank You to Linda Faye for taking care of him. The Porter family is in my heart, my thoughts, and my prayers.
