Steven Potter of Mahopac, NY died on September 26, 2018 after a courageous battle with cancer. He was 68 years old. Steve was born in the Bronx on November 13, 1949, the son of William and Myra (Caine) Potter. He was a proud veteran of the United States Army and served during the Vietnam War where he received a Purple Heart after being wounded in combat.

Over the years, Steve dedicated himself to his contracting and home remodeling business, as well as real estate and property management in the Jersey Shore area. He was a scholar of natural history, and an avid collector of seashells from beaches and oceans around the globe. Steve enjoyed nothing more than being surrounded by friends and family, and he conducted extensive research into his family's genealogy, tracing his family tree all the way back into the 1800's. He also enjoyed passing down his family's history to the younger generations through his stories, for which he will always be affectionately remembered.

Steve is survived by his wife Debbie, his daughter Jennifer Zambolla and her husband Jay, his grandchildren Nicholas and Andrew, and siblings Ed(Maggie), Bill(Bonnie), Robbie, and Betty Adams.

All are welcome to attend visitations on Saturday, September 29th from 2-4 & 6-8 PM and Sunday, September 30th from 5-9 PM at the Joseph J. Smith Funeral Home in Mahopac, NY. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, October 1st at 10 AM at St. John The Evangelist Church, also in Mahopac. Interment will follow at Mt. Hope Cemetery in Hastings-on-Hudson.
