Paul loved to fish, garden, play cards, and go to his grandchildren’s ball games. He loved people unconditionally and always saw the best in everyone. He was born to the late William Smith and Thelma Jean Litteral Powers on December 27, 1936 in Bridgewater, Michigan. He is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Janice Lee Horne Powers; his children, Rock (Jodi) Powers of Marysville, Rhonda (Lynn) Gibson of Lancaster, Kentucky, and Renee (Matt) Williams of Springfield; his grandchildren, April (Jake) Barnes, Kylee (Paul) Dawson, Jessica (Jason) Fyfe, Travis (Elizabeth) Powers, Kala Hurn (Josh Evans), and Kiersten Hurn (Aaron Frederick); great-grandchildren, Ethan, McKinley, Macie, Emma, Avery, Madeline, Abigail, Luka, Noah, Addison and Mica; and many nieces, nephews, and special friends. Paul was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Carl Powers; sister, Veronica “Cookie” Chaney; and grand-daughter, Crystal Lee Gibson. Due to the surging COVID-19 pandemic, the family has made the difficult decision to have a private funeral service with burial at Ferncliff Cemetery; however, loved ones and friends are invited to watch the service online via Facebook Live utilizing the Jones-Kenney-Zechman Funeral Home facebook page on Friday, January 8 at 2 pm.
