Sympathies go out to Max and Lorraine Potter on the recent passing of Max’s brother Lyle Potter. Also to his wife Joyce and their family Ron (Marilyn), Glen (Nancy), Roxie (Terry), and Lori Potter. Lyle and Max grew up north of Gadsby riding their horses to the Ingleton country school, helping on the family farm (parents Bert and Mazie). This carried on into his adult years, milking cows, haying, silaging and farming, before retiring and moving to Red Deer. Lyle and Joyce returned to Stettler recently, where Lyle passed away in heritage House. Joyce resides in Paragon Place.
