Roland Rolly Death, Obituary – We are sorry to inform you that at the end of last week, our team had no choice but to part ways with a long-time colleague who has been with us for a very long time. Roland “Rolly” Potter, a member of the Ellsworth Division, has left the organization and is no longer present. Rolly had been a consistent member of the Ellsworth division ever since the spring of 2017, and as a result, people in that area were familiar with his appearance. In addition to playing in 8-Ball and 9-Ball teams, he took part in a variety of APA events, such as Singles Boards, Grand Prix, and other tournaments.
Rolly’s performance in the 8-Ball Classic Yellow Tier tournament at the Singles Regionals in 2017 earned him a second-place finish. Rolly was a hard worker who wasn’t just skilled at playing pool; he was also an upbeat and happy person, a proud father and grandfather, and he took great pride in all of his children and grandchildren. He always had a cheery smile and was ready to lend a hand in any way he could. He was always prepared to help. Everyone who had the good fortune to have known Rolly will look back on him with warm memories, and his legacy will live on in the form of the anecdotes and recollections that we have of him.
During this trying time, we want his family, friends, and teammates to know that they are in our thoughts and prayers. Rolly, you are going to be missed tremendously in this world!
