Story from the Quilt:
Tommy Stephen Potts was born with a great love of music and teaching music. He graduated from the University of North Alabama with a bachelor degree in music and a master’s degree in music theory and composition. He worked in the Muscle Shoals studios when they were producing a lot of great music. Stephen had a great zest for life which unfortunately was short; he was 56 when he died. He is greatly missed by his wife, children, grandchildren, friends and students. We love and miss you.
