Obituary for Charles Andrew "Charlie" Porter

Print
Charles Andrew “Charlie” Porter, 79, of Cheyenne, Wyoming, passed away at home on February 5, 2019.

Charlie was born August 10, 1939 in Cross Plains, Texas to Clinton and Maudie Porter.

Charlie was an avid outdoorsman who loved nothing more hunting, fishing and camping in the woods with his family and favorite English Cocker Spaniel, BG. Charlie graduated from Odessa High School in 1957 and went on to graduate from Southwest Texas State University (Bobcats) in San Marcos, Texas in 1965 with a double major in biology and chemistry. He married his wife of 59 years, the former Joyce Marie Cooper, on June 11, 1960 in Odessa, Texas. They had their first son, Greg, in 1965, followed by their second son, Blake, in 1967, and their third son, Andy, in 1970. Charlie moved the family to Cheyenne in 1973 when he started work for the State of Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality. Their only daughter, Carrie, was born in 1976. Charlie and Joyce opened their own business in 1998, CAP Environmental Services.

Charlie is survived by his wife, Joyce; son, Greg and wife, Robin; son, Blake and wife, Kim; daughter, Carrie; grandsons, Alec and Drew Porter; and the Texas-in-law (and outlaw) crew.

He is preceded in death by his parents; older brother, Carlos; and son, Andrew in 1970.

Charlie’s family will hold a private ceremony later this summer.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Parkinson’s Foundation.
