Tribute & Message From The Family


Loving Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, Brother and Uncle

Larry W. Powell, 74, of Avon passed away Wednesday, May 20, 2020. Larry was born June 10, 1945 in Moline, IL to Walter and Mildred (nee Winter) Powell.

Larry retired from the Ford Motor Co. working as a tool and die maker from 1974 to 2004.

A servant-hearted man of the Lord, Larry loved his family dearly and led them by example. He was patient, hardworking, and always fixing something just to keep busy. Larry was a very involved dad, grandpa and great-grandpa, and the first person called upon for help with a project. He taught his family to love life and leaves them with memories camping trips, family vacations, "Rocket Rides", swimming pool fun, the courage to try new things (especially foreign cuisine), and the simple fun of being together.

Larry gave his heart to Jesus as a child and served his community through his local church in many ways throughout the years. He was involved in the Bradley Bay nursing home ministry, helping with the MOPS group, was an Awana Leader for many years, and would also drive the bus for the Children's Ministry programs.

Left to cherish Larry's memory are his wife and best friend of almost 55 years Linda K. (nee Owen); children Lisa Baracskai (Tom), Lori Solak (Todd) and Lee Powell; grandchildren Kaylee (Joey), Spencer, Riley, Courtney, Grace, Lydia, Faith and Sarah; great grandchildren Kaydi Belle and Myles, siblings Paula Morgan (Lane), Jim Powell and Bob Powell (Linda M.); and many nephews.

Preceded in death by his parents.

Condolence & Memory Journal

Jerry Buyck- Sad of Larry's passing. We had some classes together, drafting shop Larry was an okay guy that never caused anyone problems. I said a gentle smile I'm sure your family is mourning his loss. Linda I think we've talked before at class reunions and I think you might have been in the same class with my wife Joann Clauw. The end of April we would have been married 54 years. Joann passed away last October she had Alzheimer's but it was only bad the last year. I know she's in a better place and not suffering anymore. I'll be praying for you and your family ancillary soul to be in heaven. God bless all of you.
