2014 Memphis Commercial Appeal



On the evening of March 15th, 2014, Stephen Martin Powell, of Greer's Ferry, AR, peacefully completed his journey to our Lord's Kingdom. Born in Memphis, TN, Steve never met a stranger, and never turned away a friend. His motto, "keep carrying on", was apparent to everyone who knew him.

A true renaissance man, Steve was a natural born salesman whose genuine nature and unquestionable integrity were traits that led to his success in all he did. Steve was a graduate of Christian Brothers High School in Memphis, TN, an Eagle Scout, the "Coke Man" in the greater Southeastern United States for over 30 years with Coca Cola Enterprises, and just a few days into his hard-earned retirement, he became the owner/operator of Steve's Lawn Care in Greer's Ferry, where he also served as president of the Optimist Club. He and his adored bride of 34 years, Cristi, have loved their adopted home town of Greer's Ferry and all the friends they have made.

Steve is pre-deceased by his loving parents, Jack and June Powell, and both his brothers, Jack Jr. and Bruce. In addition to Cristi, Steve's soul will continue to watch over his daughter, Lisa Powell Williams, son, Barrett Webb, grandchildren Austin William Powell and Kayla Elizabeth Williams, and his sisters, Mary Lou Ray and Susan Powell. Steve will be deeply missed, but we stand together in enormous gratitude for the comfort and direction he brought to our lives, and we are committed to keeping his light shining.

There will be a memorial service held for Steve at the Holiday Hills United Methodist Church in Greer's Ferry, AR on Saturday, March 22nd. Visitation will be at 10:00 a.m., and the service will begin at 11:00 a.m., and the family welcomes all who knew him to share in this celebration of his life.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that those who wish to offer a remembrance, instead support one of Steve's two charitable passions: Greer's Ferry Emergency Medical Services (EMS), P.O. Box 1264, Greer's Ferry, AR, 72067, and Holiday Hills United Methodist Church, Church Building Fund, 8824 Edgemont, Greer's Ferry, AR, 72067.
