James C. Potter

Obituary Condolences

James C POTTER 1938~2011 Born a twin in Toledo, OH to Lawrence C. and Beatrice Bible Potter. His father liked to say that Jim's nose was born, and he grew on. Survived by wife of 35 years Julie Potter Marx, daughters Danae and son(inlaw) Graham Johnson and Deborah Potter, grandsons Leland and Jude, all of Ferndale WA. Gardener, fisherman, hunter, ancient history buff, Jim loved opera, classical music at St. Paul's in Bellingham, and tenors. A great cook and host, he's remembered fondly by his daughters as a worry-wart, punctual to a fault, and for his sense of the ridiculous including the Musky-toe Song. Family and friends were Jim's world; he is survived by many cherished friends, all closely connected due to his famous sense of humor. Graduate of University of California-Long Beach and Western Washington University. Gratitude for the wonderful care received at Harborview Medical Center 4-W Rehab Unit; love and gratitude to Rebecca Whitmire. Jim died peacefully Jan 5, 2011. He is free.
