I'm sorry to have lost touch with my friend Billy. I feel like I knew him well for 10-15 years. He was one hornery guy, but thoughtful to a fault. Probably like anyone that knew him, I argued with him and had him yell at me but we always parted friends. We will all live slightly less full and colorful lives without you Billy! You are now with God and with your daughter.
I just learned of Billy's Passing. He was our Landlord for over 7 years. Mr. Potter was a Wonderful Man. He and Wendall Waller's Kindness to us when our facility flooded will never be forgotten. He was a hardball businessman, and yet, exceptionally fair. He gave us Great Advice, and many, many moments of levity. We traded insults with great humor and shared a love for total, absurd exaggeration.. there were evenings when he'd stop by, just to "shoot the breeze" with us. He was a Great Character. Semper Fi, Mr. Potter. Rick McGrath and the employees of McGrath Distributing
Billy was one of a kind and a very good man. While I never managed to do a deal on one of his buildings I sought his counsel one time on a complicated real estate business matter. His advice was spot on and helped me settle the matter in a pragmatic way. Billy was generous and thoughtful.
GOD enriched my life by allowing me to meet Billy at Metro Codes, as he was getting a building permit years ago. He was the toughest and most honest person I have ever met. I loved his stories about his buddy Pat Boone.
A friend indeed and a gentleman always...will be missed by all who knew and loved him...God bless the family during this time...
