Bill Powell was a real mans man! He took me hunting for the first time to a camp called Browns farm. Its hard to picture him without a hammer and a belt of nails around his waist. He was always working on some additions to the house. He and his entire family will forever be a great memory of my childhood.

Riding in Bar-B-Q Bill's truck to Flying L football games is a memory from our childhood that i'll always treasure.

When the heart grieves over what is has lost, the spirit rejoices over what it has left.

Remembering our childhood would be hard to imagine without the Powell family. We moved to Wilton Manors in 1965 and were blessed to have the Powell's for neighbors. Growing up with the Powell boys-Gary, Clinton, and Dennis- brought us many lasting memories and lifetime friendships.Bill Powell will always hold a special spot in our hearts for being a great friend to our family. Our deepest sympathy to the entire Powell family during this time of loss. May God Bless you all in the years to come. With Warmest Regards - The McHardy Family
