Potter in Port Angeles Washington

This stone is for Calvin Chester Potter, born 1909 and died 1968 and is buried in the Ocean View Cemetery on the west side of Port Angeles, Washington. I took this photo while visiting family in Port Angeles. Out of respect for the family (since it is so recent) I chose not to do any research on Calvin's Potter lineage. 

I would like to point out the homemade tombstone. Tom, the caretaker of the cemetery, explained to me that  many times in the 40s, 50s, 60s and even into the 70s folks were allowed to craft their own flat stone and use pre-formed stamps to make the letters. This gravesite is visited as evidenced by the blue paint in the letters. 

Rest in peace in this beautiful oceanside place, Calvin Chester Potter.
