Many favourite times were spent with his great-grandchildren: Jacob, Lincoln, Isabel, Shaun, Ethan and Harrison. Predeceased by his parents, Arthur and Rosa Potter; survived by sister Jean.
He takes with him great memories of fun times with family and friends in England, and enjoyed when they came to visit Canada. He was passionate about his many hobbies such as: genealogy, historical research, collecting stamps, Roman Coins and medals, where many elite awards were won. Painting birds and landscapes was one of his well-known talents, along with his enthusiastic ballroom dancing skills. For many years he worked at Foster Wheeler as a Draftsman/Estimator and also volunteered as a member of St. John’s Ambulance, where he taught first-aid.
