In loving memory of our beloved Dad, James “Pap” Potter, who stepped over into Glory on February 1,
2006, making his stay on earth 84 years and 9 months.
He was born in Hellier, Kentucky on April 8 in the year 1921 to Cornelius and Marie Hughes Potter. James
lived most of his life in Garrett, Kentucky where he met and married the love of his life, Mae Louise Boyd. To
this union they were blessed with five children, James Marlowe (Pearlie) Potter of Sidney, Ohio, Gloria Jean
(Fred) Hall of Price, Kentucky, Anita Louise (Shiron) Turner of Berlin Heights, Ohio, John Wayne (Kim) Potter
of Langley, Kentucky and Alice Faye Sparkman of North Charleston, South Carolina. He also leaves to mourn
his passing twelve grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.
James served his country in the United States Army. He survived the attack on Pearl Harbor, beginning
World War II. The most important decision of his life was made in 1964 when our Lord and Savior heard his
cries of repentance, forgiving him of his sins. James was baptized and served the Lord for over 42 years. He
was an active member of the Rock Fork Regular Baptist Church. Preceding him in death were his parents; his
wife, Mae; and two grandchildren.
Pap is missed and thought of each day by family and friends that loved him. But, we will see him again in the
Glory Land, where we will all be together giving praise to our Savior Jesus Christ.
Written by his Loving Family.
