On a sun-filled April morning, in 1963, a cherubic “little one” announced his presence to the world with a blaring cry!
Born on April 21, 1963, to John and Hazel Porter, the “little one” was blessed with the name of Lamont, by his oldest sister Mildred. He was the youngest of eight siblings.
Lamont was a graduate of the Jefferson County Public School system and attended Frank Phillips College in Texas. After college, he enlisted in the United States Army, which included tours and service in operation Desert Storm/Gulf War, the Afghanistan War and the Iraqi Conflict. He retired as a Sargent, after 25+ years of service.
Lamont loved sports, especially basketball and the University of Louisville Cardinals; reading, working in the yard, caps, “hanging out” with corn hole players, traveling, entertaining with cookouts and beverages; playing with grandchildren, and being a part of the “Old Skool Club”. He loved being around others and “never met a stranger”!
On Sunday, May 22, 2022, Lamont was called to eternal rest. He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Hazel Porter, his beloved son and namesake, Lamont Porter, Jr.; three siblings: John, Jr., Gary, and Shelby Porter. Loved ones left behind to cherish and continue his legacy, are his Buddy, Best Friend and Beloved son, Quantez Porter; three daughters; three grandchildren: Montana, Santana and Amani Porter; his siblings: Ronald Porter, Mildred Anderson, Mary Porter and Normajeanne Maddox; several nieces, nephews and cousins; and numerous friends who loved him like family.
