Wayne Darnell Potter, 55 of Cambridge was called home to glory at University of Maryland Shore Medical Center at Dorchester. “Bird” as he was affectionately known to many, was the son of Mildred Ann Potter and the late Robert Isaac Blake, Sr. He was married to the late Sheila Lowery in July 2009.\n \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Wayne was educated in Talbot County public schools. He was an active member of Union Baptist Church, Easton until his health declined. He worked as a cook at Denny’s in Easton and other establishments in St. Michaels. Bird’s cooking at home and his donations of food for those in need were known by everyone in Easton. He also loved dancing and he was the life of the party even though he was in his wheelchair, he was “moving and grooving.” Another passion of Bird’s was his love for football. RAVENS FOR LIFE!\n \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Those who knew Bird never saw him without his faithful companion “Herc,” a gray pit bull who never left his side. Bird had an electric wheelchair and was able to get everywhere he needed to go with “Herc” on a leash. A very gentle, loving dog and now with his former breeder, we have been told that “Herc” shows his grief over Bird’s death.\n \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n He leaves to cherish his memories, his mother Mildred Potter; one aunt Bertha Potter; one uncle Maurice Potter, and devoted cousins: Terry Potter, Sr. of Cambridge, Tana Potter and Cookie Potter of Easton, and a host of loved ones and friends.\n \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Preceding him in death are his father, grandparents; a brother Robert Isaac Blake, Jr., 8 aunts, 6 uncles, and his wife.\n \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n A Memorial Service will be held at Union Baptist Church at 233 Glenwood Ave, Easton on Saturday, April 4, 2015 at 4:00 pm. The Rev Curtis Roberts, friend of the deceased, will give the eulogy. Repast will follow in the church fellowship hall immediately following the service.\n \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Condolences sent to\n \n\n\n\n\n\n www.henryfuneralhomepa.com\n \n\n\n\n\n\n .
