He was very outgoing and never was a stranger to anyone, excepting 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 team mates.
Chad was a very proud and loving father. Always bragging about his kids and their accomplishments. The real light of his eyes was the day he and Christina became grandparents! Grayson born to Trinnity and Leila 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” then their own children, Christina and Rebecca agree about that! LOL!
Chad is proceeded 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.
