It is with great sadness that the family of Arbon Blackburn Potter Jr.
annouces his passing at age 77. Arbon was born in Wilburton, Ok and
grew up in Norwalk, Ca. He went to Excelsior High School graduated in
1959, enlisted in the US Airforce in 1959-1963.

After his honorable discharge from the US Airforce he went to work for
Water Chemist and attended Los Angeles City College. He opened his
own Company Arbo Chem Mechanical, which he sold in 1996 and retired to
Lake Havasu.

He is preceded by his Father Arbon B. Potter Sr., Mother Ethel Boggs
Potter, Sister Joyce Wise, and brother John Potter.

Arb married his bride Nyla Ann Lyle July 19, 1959 who he has shared a
loving, adventurous life for 59 years.

They had two children Collene (Joseph), John (Mindy) and 3 grandsons
Zachariah, Spencer and Gunner, Piss Ant 1, 2 and 3.
Arb enjoyed a life time of camping, fishing and hunting with his long
time friends, traveling and cruising.,

Arb and Nyla enjoyed thier summers in Juniper Ridge, Arizona and
valued the friendships. If you needed something fixed Arb was your
man. He loved life, his family and if he gave you a nickname that was
a badge of honor.

Arb is survived by his bride Nyla, his children Collene and John,
thier spouses Joseph and Mindy, his three grandsons Zachariah,
Spencer, Gunner, his neice Linda Wassmuth.

Arb was larger then life, he touched so many lives with his wicked
sense of humor and honesty. His life and legacy to his family and
friends was a life lived well and loved by many...Good Job
