Plummer "Plum" Ezra Potter Jr., 78, of Albany has "Gone to the Mountains" in his home, comforted by his loving family in the early morning of Feb. 9, 2016.
Plum was an only child, born in North Conway in August 1937 and was predeceased by his parents, Mabel (Plumley) and Plummer Potter Sr.; and first wife, Erdene.
As a lifelong resident of Mount Washington Valley, he attended Center Conway Grammar School and graduated from A. Crosby Kennett High School, class of 1951 and later attended accounting college in Concord.
As a result of a car crash in June 1957, Plum would use crutches for his remaining years. The scarred tree can still be seen while driving on Brownfield Road in Center Conway. The click-clack of his crutches was a well-known sound throughout Mount Washington Valley. His recovery required 97 pints of plasma and a five month two day stay at Mary Hitchcock Hospital in Lebanon. He was the first hemophiliac to survive major surgery in New Hampshire. His unquestionable strength and resolve served him well throughout his life.
