Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 4, 1985, USA
Death: Jun. 26, 2006, Iraq

Spc. Michael J. Potocki of Baltimore, Maryland graduated from Patterson High School in 2003 and joined the military shortly thereafter and had just begun sniper school in Iraq. He had also befriended an Iraqi family and would have dinner at their house. He looked forward to returning to civilian life and planned to settle in Baltimore, buy a house and join the city Police Department. In high school, he took automotive classes and especially liked the old muscle cars. He also worked at several Southeast Baltimore restaurants, including Birches and Cap'n James in Canton and Matthew's Pizza. He told relatives he was stationed in a safe area of Iraq, but the family learned that he was in the worst possible place you could be in Iraq. He is the son of Debra Potocki, brother of Kevin, grandson of the late Leon Potocki, grandson of Shirley Krolikowski and her husband Marion. Also survived by loving godmother Theresa Punte and godfather Leo Potocki and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. He was 21.
