I read a notice of Mike's passing in the Waterloo Courier. Had to check and see if it was the Mike Potter I remembered from John Deere.
Mike was a fine man who loved his wife and family. He was a good machinist who we were sorry to lose in one of those layoffs, that John Deere is famous for.
I have never forgotten him as one of the good guys from Department 33 and had always hoped he found success for him and his family.

Dave and Mike worked at rms for a long time. We would have 4th of July parties in our backyard by SandCreek Park! Lots of food and fireworks, the only problem was trying to leave. We made a lot of our own fireworks and memories. I'm sorry we can't be there Friday as we will be out of town. Please know you have our deepest sympathy.

I too shared the Class of 1964 with Mike at Madison Heights High School and remember his kindness and showing up at reunions. I didn't realize we were fellow Minnesotans, as I live just 80 miles South. We will all miss Mike and hope to see him at our Reunion in the Sky when we all look decades younger and need no introductions!

My favorite memory is Jim and I being baptized the same morning as you and Mike at Spring Lake Park Baptist Church. I also always appreciated Mike's willingness to donate things for Nicaragua when Jim and I were going.

It has been a pleasure attending church with you two for 30+ years. Mike will be missed.

I enjoyed working with Mike at arms. He was always whistling and made my day. He will truly be missed. RIP Mike.

I will you miss Mike.
Mike had a way of making you feel like you were the most important person in the world when he would talk with you. He was kind and thoughtful and truly care about his friends and family. Mike also found time in a busy day to talk with you. He is an example of what I hope to become as I keep learning about life.
Thanks Mike!
Sincerely,
John Jacobs

So sad to hear the loss of such a nice person and freind, in honor of knowing and working with you Michael our releasionship went back to the mid 80's you mentored me for so many facets of my job,material control,building services and much more. Heck you even coached our softball teams that went onto many state tourneys. All the fishing trips to Canada, leech and winney are so much more memorable in the sadness of your passing. These memories will never be forgotten for me and so many of us .

Thanks Mike !!!
