Obituary for Richard C. Potter

SOMERVILLE & LIBERTY, MAINE
Richard C. "RCP the Great" Potter, age 63, "went out hunting" on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. He was born in Augusta, ME on December 11, 1955, a son of Richard L. and Ramona A. (Bessey) Potter.
Richard attended Erskine Academy. He began his working career at the Haskell Horse farm in Palermo. He extended his career into the logging industry, working in the woods and driving a pulp truck. Recently, he worked as a cross country truck driver.
Richard was an avid outdoorsman. He could be found anywhere scouting, trapping or hunting. The greatest hunts were with his family. Hunts that included deer, turkey, moose and most recently
bobcat. While in the woods, Richard had a knack for finding unique pieces of wood that could be repurposed into canes, plaques, or mounts. Richard also enjoyed pruning and “babying” his fruit trees and was an excellent gardener (though he was impatient when waiting for the seeds to turn to sprouts). His gardens, whether vegetable, fruit or flower, were always big, beautiful and full of buds and growth.
Richard was a very social man. Conversation was made, wherever he went and he always left you with a smile.
Coloring became a new hobby most recently, to occupy his time in between appointments and treatments. He loved keeping his colored pencils sharp and giving away many of his finish pieces, which included his signature initials “RCP” etched on the bottom of the artwork.
Richard had many accomplishments that he was proud of. The family home that he built in Somerville and raising his family there being the proudest. Becoming a Puppa topped the list of accomplishments.
Richard was pre-deceased by a daughter, Tarasa Potter; his father, Richard L. Potter and his sister Bonnie Vannah.
He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Anne Potter of Liberty; two daughters: Angimarie and her husband Lewie, Karrianne and her husband Jason; two sons: Zeb and his wife Danica, Smitty and his wife Kim; his mother, Ramona; brother, Bryan Potter and his wife Darlene; five grandchildren: Connor, Logan, Audrey, Bradley and Matthew; several nieces, nephews and cousins. Special thanks to family and friends that helped Richard the last few years.
At his request, there will be no public visiting hours. Following cremation, a Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, January 19th at 1pm at the Palermo Christian Church, 322 Branch Mills Rd, Palermo, ME.
Should contributions be desired, friends and family can follow up with Richard’s children.
