He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 64 years, Ramona Coggins Porter, daughter, Kay Porter Singleton, Pensacola, Florida, son Bobby and wife Missy, DeFuniak Springs, Florida, son Eddie Porter, of Milton, Florida, 10 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. Glen was a founding member of the Florida State Taxidermy Association and was a well known taxidermist in Niceville, Florida for over 60 years. He loved his antique cars and street rods, and built many over the years from the ground up. He loved hunting, fishing, and watching Alabama football. His favorite by far was family gatherings where Paw Paw would joke and play with the grandchildren and great grandchildren for hours.
