Feb. 6, 1975–April 26, 2022

Chad Wayne Potter, born Feb. 6,1975, in Deadwood, S.D., went to join his parents, Larry and Nancy Potter, on April 26, 2022.

Chad graduated high school in 1993 from Campbell County High School. Chad was an avid football player and wrestler, bringing home several state titles and championships helping with several for Campbell County High School also. 

He had several coaches, teachers, and friends he looked up to, making lots of memories and friendships lasting a lifetime. 

In 1998, Chad married Rebecca; during that union two children were born, Trinnity and Tanner Potter. The two later divorced. Shortly after, Chad met the love of his life, Christina Davis, in 2012. The two shared a life together and children, Trinnity, Tanner, Trenten, Thomas, and Kindsey. 

His family said: “He was very outgoing and never was a stranger to anyone, accepting everyone as family and treating them just as that. We can all remember during any of the kids’ sporting events hearing him over anyone else rooting all the kids on, including teammates. Chad was a very proud and loving father, always bragging about his kids and their accomplishments. The real light of his eye was the day he and Christina became grandparents! Grayson was born to Trinnity and Leila was born to Tanner. His favorite nickname for Grayson was ‘Monster,’, and Leila was his ‘Little Pixie.’ He loved spending time with and spoiling his grand-babies far more than their own children; Christina and Rebecca agree about that! LOL!”

Chad is preceded in death by his parents, Larry and Nancy Potter. 

He is survived in death by his children, Trinnity Potter, Tanner Potter (Tristin Potter), Trenten Ruhe, Thomas Ruhe, Kindsey Ruhe; and the love of his life, Christina Davis.
