Marvin Grant Porter, was born June 16, 1929 in Picabo, Idaho. He died May 30, 2020, in Picabo, Idaho only a half block from where he was born. Marvin was a life-long member of the Followers of Christ Church. The third of eleven children of Chet and Eunice Porter, Marvin was born in Blaine County and lived the majority of his ninety-plus years here. On June 1st, 1950, he married Lola Jean Tackitt and they would spend the next 70 years working together, raising seven children, and making home wherever life and work placed them.

Marvin worked at sheepherding, farming, ranching, truck driving, and State Brand Inspector. There were many things he turned his hand to; he was a hard-working, generous man. He loved spending time outdoors and camping in the mountains was a favorite way to spend his retirement years.

He was a solid rock for his family, his siblings, children, and grandchildren. He always had time to visit and rarely met a stranger that he could not strike up a conversation with. He knew more about the people, places, and history of the area than most, and could tell you about family you didn't know you had.

Marvin was preceded in death by his youngest daughter, Joan Ella and infant grandson, Wyatt Daniel. His dad and mom, six brothers and one sister preceded him in passing.

He is survived by his wife and partner of 70 years, Lola Jean, Sons, Fred (Cecilia), Mike (Rita), Carl (Bonnie), Jack (Lisa), daughters, Judy (Will) Granden, Jana (Kim) Orchard. He left a legacy of seventeen grandchildren, thirty-one great grandchildren, and five great-great grandchildren. He is survived by one brother, Mick Porter and two sisters, Delores Yehle and Carolyn Wright.

Graveside Services will be Monday June 1st, 1:00 pm, at the Picabo Cemetery

I never knew Marvin personally but went to school with several of the younger Porters. Howard was my age and I graduated with him in Bellevue in 1960. Mickey was a year older but left Bellevue for the Boise scene before our Senior year. I still have memories of some good times and good meals on overnight stays during grade school. Chet and Eunice Porter were two of the finest people one could meet in the farming community that was greater Gannett. They were simply a wonderful family. My condolences to the surviving members.
