Scott Barton Porter was born in Monticello, UT on May 7, 1952 to Eugene and Anne Porter.
One of six children, his siblings are Alan Porter, Cindy Buer, DeeAnne Christofferson, Sandy Porter, and Matt Porter.
Scott met his wife, Garla Knight, while working together at Hogue Printing in Mesa, AZ. They were married on April 20, 1973, and enjoyed over 50 years of marriage together.
They welcomed five children, Chad (Lupe) Porter, Rachel (Robert) Wren, Michaella Porter, Jesse (Wendy) Porter, and Sara (Sean) Bogan and 15 grandchildren. He was surrounded by his family when he returned to his Heavenly family on Saturday, February 24, 2024.
Scott spent his youth exploring the outdoors on Blue Mountain Ranch, owned and operated by his parents. He learned hard work side by side with his parents and siblings to maintain the land, including breaking the horses.
He loved anything in nature, outdoors, camping, hunting, hiking, off-roading, and impromptu trips with his children and grandchildren.
Scott's first job was at the San Juan Record. Later, he started out as pressman in the newspaper industry. He worked diligently, excelling at whatever job he was promoted to.
This required moving to different locations to gain experience. He was always moving up the ladder and became the Production Director at The Spectrum in St. George, UT.
The next 14 years were spent as Senior Vice President of Operations for Utah Media Group in Salt Lake City, UT, where he retired from a long 53 year career. 
Scott loved his country.
His greatest joy in life was his wife, children, grandchildren, and the many, many random acts of kindness and service he constantly provided.
