Greg Poteet

Augusta, GA – Entered into rest on Friday, April 8, 2022, Gregory C. Poteet, 50, loving husband of 19 years to Ashley Palmer Poteet. Family members, in addition to his wife, include his sons: Reid Carlton Poteet (17), Cannon Lewis Poteet (14), Brody O’Connell Poteet (11), and Jude Campbell Poteet (7); parents: Thomas C. Poteet, Sr. (Patricia Atha) and Kerry Vaughan Poteet Walker (Joe); siblings: Anna Poteet Lewis (Mike), Thomas C. "Buzz" Poteet, Jr. (Lastarr), Margaret Elizabeth Poteet (Ben Smith), Stephen W. Poteet (Tara), Andrew V. Poteet (Carolina), and Clare Poteet Boulus (Greg); father-in-law and mother-in-law: Jesse Palmer III and Carol Palmer; sister-in-law: Nan Palmer Lynch (Brad); brother-in-law: Jesse Campbell Palmer IV (Christy); and favorite uncle to 25 nieces and nephews.

Greg attended St. Mary on the Hill Catholic School, was a 1990 graduate of Aquinas High School, and attended Augusta College. He owned and operated Georgia Outdoor Services. He was a member of St. Mary on the Hill Catholic Church, Coastal Conservation, Augusta Sailing Club, Knights of Columbus, Irish American Heritage Society, and Augusta Rugby Club. Greg Poteet was a brother to many, friend to all. He loved his parents and siblings fiercely. He would hurdle any obstacle to fill a need that any of them had. His love and loyalty to them was evident through his prayers and desires he had for their lives.

To know Greg was to love Greg. His larger-than-life personality had a way of drawing all near to him. His charisma, whit, and passion for life was magnetic. He was the founder of fun and exuded joy. He knew no stranger and included all. He loved the outdoors and was happiest with those he loved on the water, grilling, and tunes cranked up always. Greg had a servant's heart. He was always willing to help a friend or stranger. He wanted to build things and leave things better than they ties, duct tape and all! He could naturally build community wherever he was and that is where you wanted to be.

Greg was a dedicated husband and an adoring father. His pride for his family was evident to all. He was the very definition of a family man. His four sons bear his image and describe him as strong, brave, loving and caring. Greg was a man of great character. His faith and love for Jesus Christ shaped the man he was. His heart to know Christ more created a desire to love, serve and lead his family in a way that pleased the Lord rather than man. He hungered to know God's word and understand it better. We all are the beneficiaries of that. His death leaves a void that can never be filled, but a legacy that will never be forgotten.

A funeral Mass will be held Monday, April 18, 2022 at 11:00 A.M. at St. Mary on the Hill Catholic Church with Fr. Mark Ross celebrant. Interment will follow in Westover Memorial Park.

The family will receive friends Sunday evening from 5:00 until 7:00 P.M. at Thomas Poteet & Son Funeral Directors, 214 Davis Rd., Augusta, GA 30907 (706) 364-8484. Please sign the guestbook at
