Raymond Earl Powell, Jr, age 83, passed away, Sunday, February 14, 2021. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Julia Cooke Powell. He leaves behind his children, Karen and Joe Lambert, Kim and Carlton Coleman, Ray and Kim Powell, and Julia and Jim Ramsey. He also leaves behind his grandchildren who he cherished immensely; Dan and Rachel Glidewell, Joshua Glidewell, Andrew and Kasey Lambert, Alan and Mandy (Hulver) Lambert, and Joey Lambert, Kevin and Auttum Powell, Shauna and Tommy Marcum, RJ and AmberMae (Jeter) Powell, Hailey, Trey and Nicolas Ramsey. He also leaves behind his great-grandchildren, Gabriel Coleman, David Powell, Aiden and Isaac Marcum and Norah Lambert. And of course, his wonderful four-legged companion, Della. Raymond was a Master Electrician by trade and an avid “piddler” as he was always working on a new project. Whether it was woodworking, making beautiful wooden bowls, making fishing rods and reels or going out on his boat with Julia and Della, he was always busy. He will surely be missed by many. His graveside service will be held 1pm on Wednesday, February 24, at Dale Memorial Park.

    Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
    Ray & Kim… My heart aches for you guys. I enjoyed conversations with Mr. Raymond… He often talked about His Family , His wood working projects and His love for His trade as an Electrician. From our Family to yours, we Pray for strength and Comfort during this difficult time. Love you guys!!❤

  2. My husband Robert and I (Sheila) have lost a very good friend and amazing man at life skills. I don’t think there was any thing that he couldn’t fix or would certainly try. Robert and I enjoyed all the vacation times we took several years ago. He was never the same person after Julia passed, but we loved them both dearly. RIP my dear friend you are now where you wanted to be when Julia left us. Condolences to the family!

    Karen, Kim, Ray and Julia Grace,
    I am so very sorry for the loss of your father. 😞 I have a lot of fond childhood memories of both your mom and dad and I feel for each of you. I pray for peace and comfort in these days ahead for all of you. I hope knowing he is reunited with your sweet momma brings you a little light in an otherwise dark time. Virtual hugs being sent to you all. Love you!! ❤️🙏🏻
