Condolence & Memory Journal

Don Powell was a beloved friend who loved the Lord and listened to the Holy Spirit's guidance in ministering to others. When we were in need suddenly he and his dear wife would show up, bringing groceries, or gas, or mowing services, or a friendly conversation for lonely days. We thank the Lord for the honor of this great man's friendship.

I am so sorry to hear about Don's passing. He was a very dear friend to me and all of Benson Chrysler employees. He will be missed by many. If you ever had the opportunity to meet Don you never forgot him. He was a very special person. We all loved Don and Susan and appreciated them because most every time he would come in to see us he always brought donuts and would always brag on how good our service department was. Rest In Peace my Brother and I will see you again in Heaven
