Aw. Such a beautiful photo for such a beautiful man. What I’ll remember the most is all his jokes. He always had to crack a joke. He was a funny man with a great sense of humor and a pleasant personality. I loved the times I saw him interact with his grand kids all smiles and giggles. His personality reminded me so much of his brother Clifford Powers. Well now both will be greatly missed. Dan, the boys and I send our love and hugs to the rest of the Powers family. Unfortunately due to the virus we will be staying at home. Richard May you Rest In Peace and no longer have to suffer. We love you.
