EAST DORSET -- Craig J. Potter, 28, a resident of East Dorset, died Friday Sept. 23, 2005, from a tragic motorcycle accident in Manchester. He was born in Bennington on June 25, 1977, the son of John Potter and Pam Cullinan. He graduated from Arlington Memorial High School where he played soccer. Craig went on to attend Castleton State College.

Craig was a carpenter by trade and loved to work with wood. Craig had many interests including golf, bowling, and riding his motorcycle in the country. Craig faced a lot of challenges growing up, but it is through difficulties in life that he learned the importance of being surrounded by family and friends. His playful personality and positive energy towards life made him strong in overcoming obstacles always with a smile. After relocating with his family for years as a child, he found a home in Vermont where he expressed his love for snowboarding. Most importantly, he found true friends that loved his free spirit and adventurous life. Craig lived his short life to the fullest every day without restrictions nor boundaries. His sincere and generous heart, his loving character and caring manners would catch a smile out of every person he dealt with. His family and friends will always remember his contagious smile and laughter and his love of life.

He is survived by his father, John Potter of Tampa, Fla.; his mother, Pam Cullinan of Shushan, N.Y.; his grandparents, Frank and Anna Potter of Delmare, N.Y. and Connie Cullinan; his brother, Chris Potter of Tampa, Fla.; and cousin, Tara Cullinan of Bennington.
