In 1995 he started working for the Wynnewood Refinery in security. He later became the senior surpervisor over security for the refinery. He worked in that capacity until August 2012 when he retired due to deteriorating health.

In his spare time Frank enjoyed fishing with his children, golfing, computer games and giving his friends, family and co-workers a hard time. He loved to attend Paoli athletic events to watch his sons and grandsons play sports and coach.

Frank is preceded in death by his father, Frank Charles Potts Sr; two sisters, Flora Jean and Brenda Sue; paternal grandparents, Ernest and Goldie Potts and maternal grandparents, Irving and Mattie Conley; and nephews Chase Hunt and Darron Potts.

Frank is survived by his wife Karen Potts (who Frank called his beautiful girlfriend) of the home, his mother, Flora; three daughters: Cindy Lynn and husband Gary of Foster, Janice Beasley and husband Billy of Pauls Valley, and Ashley Potts of Paoli.

He is also survived by three sons: Allen Potts of Paoli, Aaron Potts of Ada, Okla., and Frank Potts III and wife Libby of Paoli.

Frank’s strength, wisdom, perserverance, sense of humor and work ethic will be greatly missed by his family and all who knew him.
