Keith Sherman Potts, 92, passed away peacefully at home on March 2, 2017 in Mapleton, UT.  Born July 27, 1924, in Silver City, UT to Ray Leland Potts and Cecil Higginson Potts.  Keith graduated from East High School in 1941; and University of Utah in 1953; with a B.S. in Business Administration and with a M.S. in Economics. He served in the U.S. Navy as an aircraft electrician from 1943 to 1946. Keith married Jerry Slaughter in the Salt Lake Temple on August 21, 1952.  In 1953, Keith and Jerry moved to Pittsburgh, PA for a job opportunity with PPG Industries. He retired from PPG after 32 years and started a second career lasting 20 years as the physical facilities caretaker for the Pittsburgh Stake of the LDS Church.  After 61 years in Pittsburgh, Keith and Jerry moved back “home” to be closer to family. Keith loved to read, listen to music, and build his own electronics.  He was a ham radio operator and “the fix it man”.  He was a dedicated church worker, with a delightful sense of humor right up to his last days. He was well liked by all and never knew a stranger.   Keith is survived by his children: Ann, Richard (Lori), Leslie Mulholland (Shawn), Mary Smith (Gillan); 12 grandchildren; 1 great-granddaughter; and sister Lela Bergstrom.  He is preceded in death by son, William Keith Potts and brother, Richard H.
