Ronald Eugene Potter, born on March 29, 1944, a lifelong resident of Lowell, passed away suddenly on October 8, 2023, of natural causes. Employed by Steelcase for nearly thirty years as an Engineering Manager, he retired from corporate life at age 50 to go on to a second career as the proprietor of the Main Street and Century Post Pubs. He was excellent at fixing anything mechanical or around the home and would readily extend help to whoever needed it. Ron loved spending time at his home in Florida where he would explore the Gulf on his boat, enjoying live music and sportscars. It was a normal sight to see a classic vehicle being restored in his barn and he even built a couple over the years that came to him in boxes full of parts that had to be assembled. As an extremely proud and supportive grandfather to Joe, Drew, and Alex you could always find him on the sidelines at whatever sport the boys were playing no matter the weather or distance that he had to travel. He was preceded in death by his parents, Carroll and Dorothy Potter; brothers, Gary Potter, Roger Potter; sister, Judy Baird; and son in law, Curtis Hazard. He will be sadly missed by his children Eric (Connie) Potter, Marci Hazard; grandsons, Joseph (Kay) Potter, Andrew (Geethi) Potter, and Alexander Hazard; sister, Carol Sue Baer; his longtime girlfriend, Karen Johnson; and several nieces and nephews.
