It is with profound sadness we announce the sudden passing of Alistair Alfred Potts, March 30, 2021 in his 74th year. He leaves behind his devastated best friend, soul mate, love of his life & wife Sandra (Sam).
He was the proud, caring father & grandfather of son Michael and daughter Katherine, step-children Stacey Mountford (Brent); Jay Bachand (Shannon): He will be missed by his grandchildren Clayton Boers, Mackenzie (Graeme), Madison (Brooke) & Ashton Mountford, Noah and Shannon Bachand, Emily and Owen Weiler; He loved his second family, Mother-in-law Betty St John, Sister-in Laws Cathy Hartfield(Brad), the late Cheryl Roberts(Gary),Brother-in-law Russ St John (Rita) and numerous nieces & nephews; His special friends were like family, Doug & Sandi Wight and Ron & Sandy Graham; treasured Aunt Philippa Christie, Scotland UK, cousins Ralph (Sophie) Houston, Scotland UK, Cathy Buckrell (Brian), Bill Leithhead (Nancy), John Leithead (Lise).
He thoroughly loved his over 30 year banking career (including RBC, a brief stint with Bank of Nova Scotia before he was head hunted by CIBC from which he retired). It was the wonderful people he met in his numerous management roles that ignited his passion and friendships.
In retirement he lived a full life in his home on the lake in the Spring, Summer months and in his home in Florida, Fall & Winter. He and Sam travelled the world extensively, especially loving to cruise. His favourite hobbies were golfing and entertaining their many friends with BBQ’s.
Very charismatic with a wonderful sense of humour, he was always engaging and could tell stories for hours.
A private family service will take place. A Celebration of his life will follow when it is COVID safe. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Terry Fox Foundation would be sincerely appreciated. Online condolences jwhartfuneralhome.com
