More About Clark and Family

Clark Douglas Potter was born in Letcher Co KY, and moved to Houston Texas after his stint in the air force. Having seen their father and others work the coal mines, Clark and his brothers Joel Martin "Marty" Potter and David Potter chose not to take part in the mining trade in KY, but chose to seek work in Houston Texas. While in Houston Texas, Clark met and married on 21 July 1965 to Kaie Marlene Steely, the daughter of Arthur Ray Steely and Merle Opal Barnhill.

Clark has now retired after having worked 32 years at the Sinclair Oil Refinery later called ARCO, Lyondell, or Lyondell Citgo. At Arco, he was actively involved in the Union as Chairman of Workmens Committee OCAW Local 4227. Clark was also Scoutmaster of troop 611 in which his son Creed was a member. Clark somehow found time to also coach several girls softball teams in which his own daughters, Jacinda and Alethia were players.

From Annette Potter, 20 Oct., 2016

I was on Facebook this afternoon and found this wonderful piece of writing by a long time friend of the Potter family, Corky Camery. She is a member of the Mormon church. She and Clark Potter's family are all very much involved in the church and their work for others. I have nothing but praise for this church, even though I am not a member myself. I see them do so much for so many across the entire planet. They "walk the walk" and don't just "talk the talk". So, I am very proud of my brother, Clark for his participation in their efforts to sincerely help others. This wonderful lady, Corky Camery has been on this earth for a glorious 90 years. I take her words to heart and cherish her wisdom. Here is what she wrote regarding a visit she made to another ward. She posted this on October 20, 2014:

Corky's Chronicles # 5

Folks, I missed church in my own ward today, It isn't because I don't love and enjoy my Ward, but I had an opportunity to go with, Sister Becky Peterson to the Broadway Ward. She went in her capacity of Stake Relief Society, and let me tag along. When I walk into that aging building, I become emotional, until this building was built we met in a rented Methodist Church, on Telephone Road, then in an Old Church down in such a rundown area that when a high wind blew, the windows blew in, also we had to build a wood fire in the stove to warm the Chapel when we met. One time as we were having our Sacrament meeting, an Old man stumbled in, he was drunk, no one paid him any attention, and he went off to sleep. I guess it was a dull meeting for him. HA. All this went on while we were building the Broadway Ward, way back in the 1960's. At that time, Salt Lake sent some one to oversee the project of building our Chapels, this person was," Brother Horace Foote", and the member's did the work. One of those NON members who helped was my husband, Ralph Paul Camery. he donated over 700 hours of free work toward building the Broadway Ward, because I was a member.

As I walk into that building with all of it's memories, I have to laugh at some of them. Since I'm old, I have a bad time with remembering names, I'll just tell you one of the Teen age girls, who helped was up on the roof, helping in some way on the building, she became frightened and couldn't come down. It took several Priesthood men to take her hands loose then to get her off the roof. HA Ralph was a construction man, and was a great help with the untrained people .One day, the crew were standing in the parking lot talking, Brother Horace Foote, said to Ralph, "Brother Camery, why haven't you joined the Church? His answer was, "No one ever ask me too," So as the work went to an end, and our beautiful building stood ready and waiting, the Baptismal font was filled, and YES, you guessed it, Ralph Paul Camery was the first one Baptised in the font he helped to build. He serves as a Counslor to several Bishop's while in Broadway Ward, Then as Bishop when we were moved into the Pasadena 1st Ward. It all stared because of the Broadway Ward.

Today as I walked into the Chapel, memories overwhelmed me. I sat down with a small group of wonderful women, Just a few, my heart ached for those long passed, but gloried in those still here. Sister Hopkins who is way up in her 90s, and I held hands and I remembered how they had been used to work all those years in the Church, How she gave up 15 years of not having her husband home until late, as he did his work those long years as the Bishop in Broadway Ward. Juanita Tolar, We have know each other for many long years, We are the same age. she sat in front of me in the Chapel with the rest that I knew so well. Way up front sat my (I can't call her OLD friend) she is my son's age, but we have been friends most of her life. We have been on many fun trips together. Kaie and Clark Potter, and guess what? I lucked out, "Clark," was giving the talk today. It was very good, I told him I was surprised, he ended on time. He laughed, he's a great family man, and wise in many ways.

I feel right at home in that wonderful friendly Ward, the hours I've spent there have helped shape my life, and has been the foundation of my love of the Gospel. It is where my testimony grew. The members have given me so many hours of joy and laughter, A lot of lessons, both spiritual, and in other ways, also gave me the learning I never would have received any other place. It has given me a lifetime of wonderful friends and experiences that I can remember and laugh, or cry, or ponder over to the end of my days, and on into the Eternities. Yes, As I sat and remembered all these things and all those," Happy Old Broadway Days," I know I am a Blessed woman even with all my loses, Heart Ache's and disappointments, that we humans," ALL," have in our journey here on earth, I still know," I'm a blessed woman," and always have been.

Corky
