Harry Thomas Potter died July 3 in Burns after a long illness.
He was born June 11, 1928, in Woodstock, Vt., to Arden and Elizabeth Potter.
Harry served in the U.S. Army in 1946 to 1948 and worked for many years at numerous shirt factories including Embassy Shirtmakers. For 10 years he worked at Moonrise Books in Burns.
He enjoyed reading Westerns and travelling and was proud to say he had been to all 50 states. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to those who needed it.
Harry was preceded in death by his parents; his wife of 50 years, Doris; and three brothers, Arden, Jack and William.
He is survived by two sisters, Louise Siluk of Florida and Elizabeth Papa of Glens Falls; four sons, David (Judy) of S. Glens Falls, Daniel (Sandy) of North Las Vegas, Nev., John (Laura) of Fort Edward and James (Sunshine) of Crane; one daughter, Patricia Pontolilo (Ken) of Bellingham, Mass.; eight grandchildren; several great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews; and ex-daugher-in-law Linda Potter and her companion Bill Skellie of Queensbury.
At Harry’s request, a private family service will be held later in the summer at Blue Mountain Lake Cemetery.
