MT. PLEASANT--Services are being held Saturday, May 23, 1998 at 12 noon in the Mt. Pleasant Third LDS Ward Chapel for Vernon Griffin Porter, 82, who died quietly in his home on May 19, 1998 from natural causes.
Vernon was born June 28, 1915 in Escalante, Utah to Hyrum Adelbert and Sarah Alice Roundy Porter. He served in World War II. He married Ethel Ruesch on January 23, 1946 in the Manti LDS Temple.
Survivors: three daughters and three sons, Mrs. Gary (Marlene) Holman, Manti; Michael V. (Sherry), Blanding; Ronald K.

Pleasant; 25 grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; one brother, Owen Potter, American Fork; one sister, Phyllis.
He is a direct descendent of patriach Hyrum Smith and loved studying about his heritage. Known for his sense of humor, he was loved by many who knew him. Vernon was a very dedicated husband and father. He always spoke of being a $6 million dollar man-each of his six children were worth a million bucks to him.
