William Lee (Bill) Powell, 85, passed away March 28, 2017 after a long battle with Myelodysplasia Syndrome and cardiac issues with his family by his side. He was born the second child to Lloyd and Bessie (Henry) Powell on January 15, 1932.
He grew up in Springfield, MO and attended Doling Grade School, Reed Junior High, and Senior High School (now Central). He had many part-time jobs during his school years, one of which was at his uncle Chelsey (Pud) Powell's service station. He went to work for Williams Farm Equipment in 1951, continued with the firm when it changed to Chapman-Orr, and eventually changed to Springfield Tractor Company from which he retired in 1993 after a total of 42 years in the parts department. He was converted in 1949 at Noble Hill Baptist Church, later was baptized at Clever Baptist Church, and a few years later moved his membership to Immanuel Baptist Church in Springfield, MO.
He loved to fish, hunt, camp and garden as long as his health permitted. He liked to play cards, work on the computer.
On May 25, 1962 he married Lynda Jo Hambelton. He is survived by his wife, daughters Leaetta Kay Woods and Sherry Louise Stebleton (Kevin); grandchildren Brian Vaughan, Amanda Johnson, Heather McCarthy and Whitney Farrar; great granddaughter Emmeline Cambria Johnson, and great grandsons Jackson Scott Farrar and Walter William McCarthy. He was preceded in death by his Father (1974) and Mother (1989); his brother, Kenneth Lloyd Powell (2014); and his son-in-law Jimmy Leon (Pete) Woods (2013).
