My condolences to the Potter family. I have many fond memories from living around the corner from them. I also have fond memories from being on the same baseball team as their son Matt.

When I was hired by the Oak Park PD in 1981, Gary was one of the first people I met. He was a Lieutenant, but that didn’t stop him from being approachable and friendly to us recruits. He was truly a gentleman and an all around nice guy. My sincere condolences to the family.
