Tribute

Joseph “Joey” D. Portera, age 41, of Metairie, LA, passed away on November, 10 2020. He was born on July 28, 1979 to parents, Charles Portera and Lenora Scott Moon.
 Joey was a warm, loving, kind, and loyal person to all of his friends. He was generous to a fault. He never let anyone go without or hesitate to jump in his car to rescue a friend or family member. He was college educated and a computer genius. He loved life and lived it to the fullest. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word to those he loved. Unfortunately, his drug addiction destroyed his life and took everything away from him. Eventually, drugs also took his life.
 Joey is survived by his parents, Charles Portera (James) and Lenora Scoot Moon; children Joseph Portera Jr. and Lacy Austin; sister, Lenora Mary Shaw; and girlfriend, Michelle Triay. He is predeceased by his grandparents, LaVera "Betty" Flowers Portera and Cologero “Carl” Portera Sr.
 A Memorial Gathering will be held on Saturday, November 21, 2020 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM, followed by Mass, at Tharp-Sontheimer-Tharp Funeral Home, 1600 N. Causeway Blvd. Metairie.
