BEE SPRINGS – Billy Travis Poteet, age 79, was surrounded by his family when he departed this life on Sunday, May 14, 2023, at his home. The Edmonson County native was born on March 20, 1944, to the late James Floyd and Edith Hayes Poteet. He was married to his devoted wife of over sixty years, Patricia Ann Poteet, who survives.
Billy retired after owning and operating Bee Spring Lumber Company for forty-two years.
