Obituary

Dennis Wayne Porter, age 60 years, of Jefferson City, Mo. passed away Saturday, November 21, 2020 at his mother’s home.

Dennis was born July 9, 1960 in Jefferson City, Mo. the son of Nelson Raymond and Carol Louise (Sapp) Porter. He was married on September 20, 1980 in Centertown, Mo. to Brenda Gail Moore.

A lifelong resident of the central Missouri area, Dennis was a 1978 graduate of Russellville High School.

Dennis worked in the manufacturing industry for over 35 years. He was the shift supervisor for third shift at ABB for 25 years. Following his career with ABB, he was employed with AP Green and ALPLA Inc. During his retirement, Dennis was proud to be the “on-call” Papaw to help with his grandchildren.

Dennis was a Deacon and a life long member in good standing at the First Baptist Church of Elston. He dedicated his time to being a youth leader as well as choir member. Dennis cherished the relationships he built within his church and the Elston community.

To Dennis, the most important things in life were his faith, family and the great outdoors. He loved hunting, fishing, mushroom hunting and anything else that kept him out in nature. Dennis was a member of the Moniteau County Hunting Club. He had a deep appreciation for God’s creation and especially loved traveling out west to see the mountains. He loved to tinker and keep himself busy with little projects and jobs.

He was dedicated to his family and enjoyed nothing more than spending time with his children, grandchildren, brothers, cousins, nephews and nieces. For Dennis, there wasn’t much better than getting to combine his favorite things by spending time with family out in the country.

Survivors include: his wife, Brenda Porter; three sons, Blake Porter (Jessica Green) of Jefferson City, Mo., Zachary Porter (Daniel Teper) of Chicago, Ill. and Lucas Porter (Jessica) of Holts, Summit, Mo.; his mother, Carol Porter of Jefferson City, MO.; two brothers, Tony Porter (Donna) of Jefferson City, Mo. and Kevin Porter (Carol Dee) of Republic City, Mo.; three grandchildren, Molly Porter, Jackson Porter and Kaydence Porter; his four “special littles”, Carter, Lilly, Josie and Henli; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father, Nelson Raymond Porter on November 4, 2011.

Visitation will be held at Freeman Mortuary from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, November 24, 2020 with a Celebration of Dennis’ Life immediately following at 6:00 p.m. Tuesday in the Freeman Chapel. Anyone in attendance is required to wear a protective mask.

A webcast of the funeral service will begin at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday for friends that are not able to attend by going to the "photos and videos" tab of this memorial page and scrolling down to the webcasting link.

So very sad to hear of Dennis' passing...my thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Porter family. I very much enjoyed being Dennis' assistant coach for the "Pirates" baseball team. Dennis was a great inspiration to all of the young men he coached! Those were great times, and Dennis' love for baseball was passed along to all he came in contact with.

The impact Dennis had on my son Derek and all the other young men on that team was immeasurable! Thanks to Dennis for his leadership...he will be greatly missed.
