Rhett was born October 21, 1938, in Butte, America; to Isaac Jay and Glee Forsyth Potter, the oldest of three children.
He married Lynn Rossiter (deceased-1975) on July 23, 1958, in the Cardston, Alberta Temple and together they had five children: Teri (Chris) Wiberg, Corby (Denny) Young, Bryn (Kristi), Burk (Staci), and Jason.
Rhett and his brother, Kip; who are both LCSW's, founded the non-profit PAAG (paagutah.org) 48 years ago in Ogden. Rhett was initially the Director of PAAG, and now volunteers his time to fuel his passion of helping the mentally ill in Weber County socialize, progress toward societal integration and find purpose in their lives.
