His wife Nathalie Potter posted on his X account, “Two days ago, on June 8th, my husband, Ben Potter, passed away in an unfortunate accident.”

“To many of you, he was Comicstorian, voicing stories from across multiple different mediums. To his loved ones, he was one of the best and most supportive individuals anyone could ask for,” the grieving widow wrote to his fans.

Nathalie explained how her husband was the “rock” of their family off camera, and he always did “his best to make everyone laugh and make sure they were okay.”

She underscored how Potter was a beloved husband, son, brother, and friend who was genuine and someone who would listen and make time for his loved ones.
