Pott, Marvin A.
Marvin A. Pott died peacefully on Monday, June 24, 2013 after a long illness. He was born in Lomira, Wisconsin, the son of the late Herman and Florence Pott.
After moving to Green Bay, Marvin married Dorothy Dally on September 21, 1946.
Marvin served in the Navy during World War II, and also in the Korean War. He was an active member of the American Legion, and one of his favorite duties was placing flags on the graves of all deceased servicemen every Memorial Day. He also served in the Color Guard at all Packers home games.
After retirement from over 35 years at Proctor & Gamble, Marvin spent many years, with a broom in hand, at the jobsites of his son's business, bringing a smile to all around him, enjoying conversation with customers and subcontractors, until his health would no longer allow him to continue.
He is survived by his wife, Dorothy; his children and their families- Michael Pott, Green Bay, Juliana Hansen, De Pere, Steven (Mary) Pott, Green Bay; eight grandchildren- Sara and David (Keiko) Pott, Jennifer (Ron) VanDenPlas, Jeremy (Elena) and Joel (Susan) Hansen, Stephanie, Katie and Nicole Pott; eight great-grandchildren; and step-sister, Elsie Hussin.
He was preceded in death by his parents, infant brother, and stepfather, Julius Kusch.
Per Marvin's request, the family will celebrate his life with a private service. Online condolences may be expressed at www.lyndahl.com.
