Kenneth F. Potts, (Kenny,Ken, Sweetheart, Dad and Poppa to those who knew him and to those who loved him), was born in North Carolina to Benjamin F Potts (deceased) and Mable Potts (deceased).  He began as a rigger for the US Naval Shipyard and remained employed for 30+ years, retiring as a GM-13 Superintendent in 1998.  As a person who cannot sit still and had to remain active, he continued to work.  He worked for La Mirada Country Club for several years as a bar manager but found a true passion in Locksmithing.  He went to school to become a locksmith and holds several certificates in his trade.  He owned and operated Potts Mobile Lock and Key.  A truly remarkable and generous man who wanted to share his knowledge, he decided to teach others.  He has been a Locksmith instructor for several years, teaching in a small classroom at Calvary Baptist Chapel.  He was known to many as a jack-of-all-trades.  A simple man, he was loved and will be missed deeply by those he loved dearly.
