Easley, South Carolina: Fred James Porter, age 85, affectionately known as “Poppy”, passed away on Saturday July 18, 2020. He was the son of the late Rufus Earl Porter and Lola Ramey Porter from the Arial Mill Community.

He served in the US Army and retired from Lockheed Martin after 28 years of service. He was a wonderful husband, and is survived by his wife Betty Harbuck Porter. Fred was a loving father and is survived by his three sons and their wives; Tony and Wanda Porter, James and Angie Porter, and Mark and Kristin Porter. He was a caring grandfather to his nine grand-children. He loved to laugh and he was always ready with a joke to make others laugh. He will be dearly missed, but we are thankful he is walking the streets of gold with Jesus.

Fred was a wonderful friend, wonderful husband to my sister, Betty Harbuck, wonderful brother in law. If I ever needed him, he was there. Helping with car problems and ever so many other things that I would need help. We loved to go places together, going to Branson and Greenfeld, Mich, Elvis Pressley home, so many great places. He always loved Betty through high school and even in those days, he had a car and we would all three go places. He never said a cuss word, never took the Lord's name in vain and was a wonderful person. Somebody that all should pattern their lives after him. Will miss him. Love, Annie Harbuck Andrews.
