Roy Potersnak Obituary

Roy E. Potersnak, age 94, a lifelong resident of Port Vue, died on January 27, 2024.  Born September 13, 1929, in Port Vue, he was the son of the late Ed and Elizabeth (Walko) Potersnak and the husband of the late Dolores (Szymarek) Potersnak. 

Born with an innate talent, Roy was a carpenter who possessed the remarkable ability to build and fix anything.  Whether it was constructing a sturdy structure or tackling complex plumbing, woodworking, electrical, or car maintenance tasks, Roy approached every project with unwavering dedication and skill.

Beyond his crafting abilities, Roy was a cherished Port Vue Memorial American Legion Post 447 member, where he formed lifelong friendships.  A man of simple pleasures, he enjoyed a coffee or beer with friends.

One of Roy's greatest passions was his love for World History, particularly his profound interest in the events and stories surrounding World War II.  As a dedicated student of history, he enriched his understanding of the past.  Roy's extensive knowledge and storytelling captivated all who engaged with him. 

Roy is survived by his daughter, Lynn Baird; grandchildren, Daniel (Nicole) Baird and Emily (Jeffrey) Loeb; great-granddaughters, Olivia and Isabelle.  In addition to his parents and wife, he was also preceded in death by sisters Grace Kontz and Ruth Beech and his longtime companion, Gloria Loutitt.  A Memorial Mass will be held at Saints Joachim and Anne Parish, St. Eugene Church, Saturday February 17, 2024 at 11:30 a.m.  Condolences and memories may be shared at  Chris Odasso, Supervisor
