William J. “Bill” Potter, 85, of Murrysville took his final peaceful breath on Friday, November 15, 2019 surrounded by his entire family of which he was most proud.  He was born June 21, 1934 in Wilmerding, son of the late Albert and Katherine Lynch Potter.  In addition to his parents, Bill was preceded in death by two sons, Larry and Jeff Potter; two brothers, Kenneth and Albert Potter; and a sister, Mary Anne Piper.  Bill was a lifelong resident of Murrysville and gave back to his community in so many ways as shown by his 50 years of service as a Rotarian with the Murrysville-Export Rotary.  He took great pride in running the annual Chicken-A-GO-GO and the Murrysville Halloween parade for over 40 years.  He served as the Rotary Club's past president and was a Paul Harris Fellow.  In 1961, Bill acquired his Real Estate License.  He spent the next 55 years raising four children as a full-time Realtor until his retirement in 2016.  He made many dedicated friends along the way which gave him great comfort.  Being an avid Steeler fan, he was a season ticket holder for almost 50 years.  Bill was caring, compassionate and sincere about many things in his life.  He loved making handmade greeting cards for the entire family which was always met with great laughter and joy.  He is survived by the love of his life, Shirley Dudura; two daughters, Sandra (Wyman) Lee and Michelle (Joseph) Nicoletti; two stepdaughters, Kim (Donald) Yuhouse and Terri (Richard) Thiele; a daughter-in-law, Laureen Potter; grandchildren, Michelle Fonzi, Christopher (Samantha) Fonzi, Cassie Potter, Andrew (Cara) Nicoletti, Joseph (Alexis) Nicoletti, Aaron Yuhouse and Brendan Thiele; great-grandchildren, Elliana and McKinley Fonzi and Joseph Nicoletti IV and Luca Nicoletti.  Visitation Monday, November 18, 2019 from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. at the Hart Funeral Home Inc., Murrysville.   A blessing service will be held on Tuesday at 10 a.m. in the funeral home.  Interment will follow in Murrysville Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Miracle Field of Western PA or the Westmoreland Conservancy in Bill’s name.

Dearest Sandi and Mickey!!!
Just read of your Dad's passing. I can look out my bedroom window at bedtime, see the Hart Funeral Home and pray regularly for the families of those who have lost loved ones.
Little did I know that I was praying for you/your family last night.
Love and Hugs,

Bill was one of the first members of the Murrysville Rotary Club to welcome me into the club. I will always remember his humor even when he was battling his cancer. Bill, Ben Getty and myself were members of our Rotary Club that shared losing our sons before their time. Miss you William.
