Adrian "Buster" Potter, age 74, went peacefully into the arms of Jesus with his loved ones at his side on May 28, 2021. He was preceded in death by the love of his life for 47 years, Mary (Bekkering); parents Wilber Potter and Ardith Maple; in-laws Raymond and Verna Bekkering; brothers and sisters Bill Potter, Bob Potter, Beverly and Richard Newman, Gordon and June Sorensen, Douglas Potter, and Naomi Potter; and brothers- and sisters-in-law James Mulligan, Wanda VanderMolen, Verla Isenhoff, and Marcia Bekkering.

Buster will be lovingly remembered by so many, including his daughter, Amanda; son-in-law, Jeff Rhodes; grandkids Chloe, Luke, Levi, and Liam Rhodes; brothers and sisters Glenna and Mike Vosburg, Sandy Potter, Evelyn Potter, Lisa Potter, Don Potter, Randy Potter, David and Sue Potter, Carol and Rick Essebaggers, and Phillip Potter; brothers- and sisters-in-law James Bekkering, Judy Mulligan, Larry Isenhoff, Chris Bekkering, and Tim and Dawn Bekkering; many nieces and nephews; his partner in crime, Susie Loew and her family; and so many wonderful friends, especially his coffee crew.

Buster grew up in Conklin, Michigan, where he worked on a farm as a young boy. He later married his wife, Mary, and served in the United States Army. They planted their roots in Dorr, where they have lived since 1976. Buster owned Beline Haulers for 25 years before selling the business. Thereafter, he continued to dispatch for the duration of 21 years. Buster loved his tractors and pulled with several clubs. He traveled to Iowa every year for the pulls and has crossed the Mackinac Bridge several times on his tractor. You could always find him working in his barn with Tim, mowing grass with his grandsons, or splitting wood with Jeff. He had a hand in establishing Foxfire Pullers in 2011, where he passed on his love of tractors and pulling to his grandson, Luke. He loved watching the boys on their dirt bikes and came to every band concert, soccer game, basketball game, and school event. He was so very proud of his family. He loved his country and helped people whenever he could. He was a servant of his Lord and Savior and is rejoicing with the ones who passed before him in heaven. He would want you to know that he appreciates all of your prayers, your love, and your support. He felt blessed to have had all of you in his life.

Buster's celebration of life will be held on Sunday, June 6, his 75th birthday. Family will be reminiscing with friends and loved ones from 1 - 5 p.m. A short service will begin at 5 p.m. with military honors. John Zink is officiating. This will all take place at the Foxfire Pullers track located at 2245 144th Ave. in Dorr. Please bring a chair and a tent or umbrella for shade. This is a casual gathering, so dress comfortably. Please set up along both sides of the track as if it were a pull.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the family to assist with final expenses or to the Foxfire Pullers non-profit. The family welcomes memories and messages in their guest book online at cookcaresbyron.com.

I knew Mary & Buster most of my life. They were great friends to me. After Mary’s passing Buster remained a good friend always helpful . Sometimes he’d call & cheer me up. Sometimes I called & cheered him up. He’d call & ask do you have ice cream? We will all miss him so much. He was the best. Heaven has gained another Angel. Now he joins Mary & they can stroll Heaven together. What a beautiful thought. Know his family will miss him so much. Blessings to all of them. Evelyn Harris & family

When looking at the definition of Buster. It reads someone or something extraordinary.
I think this defines Buster Potter. To his parents, he was named Adrian Jay, their son. His mother gave him the nickname Buster. For Aunt Mary, he was her husband. To Ananda, he was a Dad. To others, he was a beloved brother. To many, he was an Uncle. He was a friend to many. Besides all these titles, He was a servant of the Lord. He was there to guide each one of us, with kind words and kept each of us close in his prayers. Uncle Buster leaves a legacy of love for one another, and remember to Love the Lord. He is our only way to heaven.

Saddened to hear of Buster's passing. Always a gentleman and a good sport at all of the tractor pulls he attended. A great friend of my father (now passed) and the entire family. Condolences to the entire family. He will be missed.

Amanda, Jeff and Family ... I always appreciated Busters friendship, his willingness to help in any situation and of course his introducing me to Tractor Pulling. To Buster, thanks for the fond memories, you will be missed and will stand as one of the finest men I ever had the pleasure of knowing. R.I.P my friend.

I was very blessed to have Buster as a neighbor and friend. He always had a kind word and a smile to share. He will be missed this side of heaven, but we will meet again on those glorious shores. May God give you His peace and comfort as you grieve the loss of this dear man.
