Kurt Potter of Whiting, Maine passed away suddenly at home on August 7, 2017, with Angelika Potter, his wife of 50 years, at his side.
Kurt was born in Bremen, Germany on October 19, 1938, and was raised by Heinrich and Hilda Grewe. In 1966 Kurt moved to Toronto, Ontario and subsequently to Baltimore, Maryland to marry Angelika. Kurt lived in Tulsa and Mannford, Oklahoma for 40 years working in book and record sales. He and Angelika relocated to the Cutler-Whiting-Machias area in 2011. Kurt found the climate of coastal Maine reminded him of northern Germany.
