Glenn R. Potts, 76, Tipton, died Tuesday at his residence.

He was born in Columbia, son of John and Mary Frances (Wiser) Potts. He married Laquita Mignot.

Surviving are his wife; two sons: James Brett and wife, Jean, of Tyrone and Glenn R. Jr. and wife, Bonnie, of Tipton; a daughter, Anita Potts and fiance, Russell Bradford, of Tipton; five grandchildren: Joshua, Chelsea, Aaron, Austin and Chase; three step-grandchildren: Talina, Theo and Anthony; three great-grandchildren: Haven, Gage and Serenity; a sister, Donna Himes and husband, Mike, of Bellwood; and two brothers: William and wife, Darlene, of Tipton and Charles and wife, Barb, of Bellwood.

He was preceded in death by a sister, Linda Freed; and four brothers: Thomas, Gerald, Paul and Robert.

Glenn was a U.S. Air Force veteran of Korea and also served in the Tyrone National Guard. He had been employed for Purolator as a courier for 25 years and had previously worked at Batchelor’s Service Station and Harrington Service Station, both of Tyrone. He was a member of the Tipton Fire Company and the Tyrone VFW.

Glenn was an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan. He was devoted to his children and grandchildren. One of his greatest joys in life was to take rides in his 1957 Chevy Bel Air Hardtop. Not a day went by that he wasn’t talking about or riding in his pride and joy. He was a great man, an excellent husband and an outstanding father. He always did for others before himself.

A memorial service will be held at noon Saturday, May 17, 2014, at Hillside Community Church, 508 S. Cambria St., Bellwood, the Rev. Ken Bigler officiating. A luncheon will follow the service at the church.
