Porter, Clarence R. "Sonny"

Clarence R. "Sonny" Porter, 92, of Arena passed away at his home on Monday, August 29,2022. He was born on January 10, 1930, in Dunlap Hollow in the family log cabin, the son of Ray H. and Geneva (Meiller) Porter. He was married on January 10, 1948, on his 18th Birthday, to Marion Viola Carpenter. She preceded him in death on September 17, 2017. He is survived by his three sons, Gary "Pete", Ray (Kristi), and Tom, all of Arena; his granddaughter Genny (Ed) Thompson of Indiana; three great grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild.
Sonny had many jobs in his lifetime, including many years in the construction trades, but he and Marion were best known locally for their 37 years owning and operating Porter's Restaurant in Arena, where Sonny always had a joke and a story for the patrons.
As per Sonny's wishes, no memorial service will be held. As dad told us just last week, "I don't want to make all of my friends lie for me at the funeral and say what a great guy I was." Online condolences available at  The Richardson-Stafford Funeral Home in Spring Green is assisting the family with the arrangements.
