Obituary for James Donald Powell

James Donald Powell (Papa), son of the late Harold and Ione Powell, was born on January 28, 1941. James leaves behind four siblings, Peggy Bachman, Lorrine Taylor, Leslie Powell and wife Judy, and Sharon Flanary, all of Harrisonville, MO. He attended Harrisonville High School in Harrisonville, MO and graduated in 1959. From an early age James discovered his love of farming and after graduation he followed his career dreams and went to work as a farmer.

He was united in marriage twice and had two sons, James Roy Powell and Donald (Scotty) Powell.

He was preceded in death by his son Scotty in 1985.

As an adult, James enjoyed watching and competing in tractor pulls, having his family together for summer fish fries, weenie roasts and watching and observing the wildlife around him. For years he enjoyed getting up every morning to eat breakfast and catch up with the local farmers at Old Cedar. He loved traveling and taking vacations with friends and family. His biggest love was running farm equipment and being in the field surrounded by his crops.

Many of James' stories, jokes and love of life will forever be cherished in the lives of his grandchildren; Amy Elliott and husband Justin of Garden City, MO, Jimmy Powell and wife Courtney of Garden City, MO, David Powell and wife Taisha of Creighton, MO, Cara McMilian and husband Austin of Pleasant Hill, MO, Makayla Wilhite and husband Tyler of Peculiar, MO, Brittney McCormick and husband Matthew of Belton, MO and Seth Powell who preceded him in death in 2014, 15 great-grandchildren, and many devoted nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Funeral services were held Saturday, April 14, 2018 at The Farm, Garden City, Missouri with burial in the Garden City Cemetery, Garden City, Missouri.

The family received friends Saturday, April 14, 2018 at The Farm.
