Clint Wesley Powell considered himself the luckiest man, and often played a song by that title on his guitar as he serenaded his wife, Alison and three daughters, Beatrix, Mackenzie and Cadence. Looking back on Clint’s life it is safe to say he was pretty lucky. Clint was a born believer in Jesus Christ and it was in the Lord he put his faith, leading him to many blessings and opportunities. Clint started his own mechanic business to help the community with their vehicles. He loved being able to directly work with those in need of service to their automobiles. He was a people person and could small-talk for hours. Clint also loved being outdoors and built a chicken coop with Alison so they could start their hobby farm on their small homestead property. He spent much time playing in the backyard with Bea and working on restoring his grandfather’s Plymouth Deluxe. Clint left the Earth a lucky man, but is missed greatly by his family.
He is survived by his parents Wesley and Jenny Powell of Stoutland, MO; his great-grandparents Ray and Sharon Powell of Decatur, IL; his sister Amber Powell, her husband Peter Jankowski and nieces Virginia and Charlotte of Plato, MO; his Aunt Beth, Uncle Scott and Uncle Dion and families; Cadence Betty his daughter of Sara Schlrau, Mackenzie Vera his daughter of Emily Aufrecht, and Beatrix Rose his daughter of wife, Alison Powell. He was loved by many.
