William K. Porter — Bill was born Aug. 2, 1940, in Russellville and grew up in Sheffield, Alabama. He went to the University of the South and graduated, eventually. Bill enlisted in the Marine Reserves and was honorably discharged after six years. After his six months of active duty, he was married to Ruth King and finished his last few credits at Columbia in New York. The family gave Bill a green burial at the top of his back pasture. There will be a memorial gathering in the summer at Bill’s farm. He is survived by his wife, Ruth Porter; and his four children and their families, and extended family. Bill had three main focuses: his writing, his land and his family. If you want to know more about Bill, just read his novel.
