Rodger Dale Potts

Rodger Dale Potts, age 73, of Water Valley, MS died unexpectedly Wednesday, October 7, 2020, at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Oxford, MS. He was born June 30, 1947, in Bruce, MS to the late Alvis and Gladys (Wrenn) Potts. Upon graduating high school, Rodger joined the National Guard where he served our country for five years. After his honorable discharge, Rodger went to work for the C&G railroad working his way up to engineer, a job from which he retired. He had a tremendous passion for deer hunting, but his greatest joy was his family. Rodger was a member of Jumpers Chapel Church.
