Our family has been blessed to have known Gordon. He had always been one of our favorites and a very special man in our community. We will miss seeing his friendly and kind face but he will never be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of his family.
Doug and I would like to extend our deepest sympathies in the passing of your dear father and grandfather. He was such a kind and caring person and we very much admired his optimistic attitude. Gordon always showed a genuine interest in how everyone was doing and we appreciated our chats about how things were going on the farm. He will be dearly missed! Thinking of you all!!
I knew Gordon's wife Mildred as a fellow student in the Dalemead school before I met Gordon. I was always very glad to see Gordon each time we met as neighbors because of his sunny disposition and cheery personality. My condolences to Gordon's family. I know he will be missed.
I was saddened to learn of the passing of Gordon Potter. He and Mildred were loved, respected and valuable members of the Dalemead community for many years. My own family homesteaded in the Dalemead area and I have fond memories
of that community and the wonderful people who lived there. My sincere sympathy to the Potter family.
What a wonderful man Gordon was,a father,grampa,great grampa,a friend and always there at sports events of all the kids and so involved in what was going on with the family...He will be missed by every one who had the experience to have known Gordon Potter!!!!!!
Sincerely Ron & Virginia Barnes
Gordie was my first cousin, once removed; My dad Bert was his cousin. It was always a pleasure to visit with Gordon and Mildred, usually at Harvey and Gerties’. Always a smile and a kind word. He will be missed!
We are so sorry for your loss. We have great memories of both Gordon and Mildred on the shuffleboard courts. Gordon was a great player and enthusiastic competitor. In his memory bank of play, if either of us won the last game that we player against Gordon, he presumed it was his turn to win "this time". It very often worked out that way, amazingly. He will be missed by the Foothills Shuffleboard community in High River, Alberta. Rest in peace, Gordon.
