It is with great sadness that we can confirm that Celtic historian and Celtic Star columnist and author, David Potter, peacefully passed away as he slept at around 5.20am this morning, 30 July 2023. He was 74.
On Wednesday we posted this message on twitter at the request of David’s lovely wife Rosemary:
David Potter had a rare and severe reaction to his immunotherapy treatment and is now in the High Dependency Unit at the Victoria Hospital receiving treatment. Not feeling great and voice very weak so I am texting for him just to let you know. Your prayers are welcome.
Rosemary, his wife.
And prayers were certainly said and candles lit for this great Celtic man who has contributed so much to Celtic Football Club over his lifetime. David has been a huge supporter of The Celtic Star, and indeed other Celtic sites over the years, always wanting to ensure that the great stories of the club’s history were passed down the generations.
Today we received the saddest news that we we dreading from Rosemary and once again this is shown below.
Thank you for your prayers for David which he much appreciated.
The sad news today is that David’s condition deteriorated yesterday overnight and he slept away peacefully at 5.20am.
He had received anointing with holy oil and prayers on Friday when we didn’t know whether he would recover or not and was comforted by that.
It’s too early for us to have thought of anything further but I will keep you informed of any future arrangements.
Thank you for your prayers and support.
