Daryl Porch

August 7, 2012 at 12:22 am | Blog | No comment


It is with great sadness that we at HAMS report that longtime club member and former club president Daryl Porch passed away on August 3rd. He was a truck driver by profession and a prolific truck modeler by avocation. He had a tough life, but a very good attitude about life. He took whatever God gave him and made the best of it. Daryl was a one of a kind person.

His wake will be Thursday, August 9, 2012, at Pruitt Mortuary, 7518 North Main, Houston, TX 77022, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Afterwards there will be a small service from 7:35 pm to 8:00 pm.
