John Keith Potts was born about 1926 in Simcoe, son of Clarence Potts and Katie Mitchell. The 25 Sep 1993 Brantford Expositor reported his death on 23 Sep 1993 at Niagara Falls, Ontario. 
His mother and my grandmother, Harriett McCarthy Barr Gullen, were first cousins. (Unfortunately I cannot verify that this photo is indeed John Potts.)

From John's neice, Kathryn Graham, 30 Apr 2007:
This picture is indeed John Potts. I am John's niece, daughter of 
his sister Audrey. John's actual birth date was 8 Dec 1927. 
He married Audrey Bedford and over the years they adopted three daughters and two sons. John was employed for many years at American Can in Simcoe and was later transferred to the plant in Niagara Falls.
