    Mr Warren was so funny. Always joking around. He enjoyed the treats and bananas I would bring him. He would tell others I was his girlfriend, and other ladies too. Haha!! RIP.

    Potsey was one of the most honored and memorable Sig Taus in our more than 100 year history. To know him was to love him and to know he’d be assisting in the planning of several of our national gatherings in The Big Easy assured the kind of memorable experience only he could envision and provide. Sigma Tau Gamma likes to say that we are “building noble generations of men” and I saw that in his response to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina; losing everything, including some of his most prized fraternity memorabilia, he accepted the losses and looked forward, never thinking to say “Why me?” My day was always brighter when I heard his voice and I will dearly miss my beloved Brother. With deepest sympathy to his family and many friends. W.P. “Buz” Barlow, Jr., CEO and past National President of Sigma Tau Gamma Fraternity.
