His wife announced the 40-year-old’s death after an ‘unfortunate accident’ in a heartbreaking statement.

Nathalie Potter said: ‘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. As a husband, a son, a brother, a friend, or even just a stranger, Ben was loving and genuine.

‘He was someone who would listen and make time for his loved ones. He would do his best to make everyone laugh and make sure they were okay.

‘He was our rock and he’d reassure his loved ones whenever they needed it. He was my world and I need time to be with friends and family.’

She went on: ‘I have so many things I need to figure out but firstly, I need to grieve. I ask that you respect my privacy as well as everyone else’s.

‘Right now my priority is preserving everything he’s built and I don’t have any plans beyond that.

‘To honor him by continuing to tell great stories by great people, as well as to keep the memory of our very own superhero alive. We supported each other on everything we wanted to do and I’m not about to stop now. – Nathalie Potter.’
