Kenneth Stephen Pott

Kenneth Stephen Pott, 70, entered Eternal Life Wednesday, June 12, 2019.

Ken was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, to the late Elmer and Rosemond Pott. His family moved to Ridgecrest, where he would eventually graduate from Burroughs High School in 1966.

He was a talented drummer, classic car enthusiast, genealogy and family history buff and former parishioner of St. Gabriel the Archangel. He served his country in the United States Air Force from 1967 to 1971 and exercised his faith in Louisville, Ky., at St. Bartholomew Catholic Church.

Ken leaves a legacy of faith, love and devotion to his family. He will be remembered as a beloved husband, father, and grandfather.
