Son of Levi Frank Potter

21 Jan 1922 - 22 Sept 1945
Mt. Eagle Newspaper, Whitesburg, Letcher County, Kentucky, Thursday, Oct. 4, 1945. Frank Edward Potter, the son of Frank and Francis Potter, born Jan. 30 1921, passed from this life Sept. 22, 1945, at the age of 24 years. In Dec. 1940 when our Government was calling for volunteers for military service, young Edward Potter boldly and willingly sacrificed his companionship with his parents, brothers, sisters and neighbors here, and went to serve his country. He served in the Army five years with 3 years of that time overseas. He fought through Africa, Sicily and Italy, was wounded three times and was one time captured in Sicily and held 12 days by the enemy before being recaptured by his own Army. He was honorably discharged from military service May 30, 1945.
He has two brothers still in service, Charlie and Earl. In his passing he leaves, father, mother, 7 brothers and sisters and eight half brothers and sisters and a large number of relatives and too a multitude of friends as has been shown by the hundreds that came to view his war worn body. On Tuesday, Sept. 25th his funeral was preached at the First Church of God at Neon (KY) by Elders Newt Meade, T. R. Collier and W. S. Tolliver amidst a very large congregation and on Wednesday at 10 o'clock he was given a military burial in the Potter Cemetery just above Neon. Our hearts are so deeply wounded that time can never heal but neighbors and our hundreds of friends that came to offer their sympathies and the preachers said so many nice things. There were so many flowers, and the untertakers did so much to make our burden lighter, that surely we can bear it better.
Sorrow has come in our home before by reason of death but none has been so hurtful. When we think of his long absence from home (5 yrs.). Being three times wounded. Being captured by the enemy and the untold suffering he endured -- then so soon after he came home to live with us his life was taken from him. May we say here that we trust and pray none other soldier that fought, suffered and done so much for his country will so soon after coming home be sent into eternity by one that our boys fought and many died for. In closing may we thank and thank again every one who came or helped us in any way. May the blessings of God rest with each of you. Sincerely, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Potter and Entire Family.
