He also leaves behind his grandchildren, Maura and Adabelle Potter of Rochester; siblings, Doug (Dianne) Potter of Cortland, Marilyn Otteson of Auburn, and Steve (Cindy) Potter of Marathon; several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

A memorial service, with military honors, will be held at the K.L. Sharp Funeral Home, Cincinnatus, NY, on Sunday, June 13, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. with Reverend Will Gallerani officiating.
