Richard A. Powers

Richard A. Powers

Richard A. Powers, 88, returned to his heavenly home July 12, 2015, after a valiant battle with a long illness. His devotion to his family and his firm belief in God supported him in his struggle and ultimately gave him peace.

Richard was born to the late Ashley and Nellie Powers in San Mateo, Calif. September 25, 1926, and grew up on the family ranch in the Applegate area. On the day of his eighteenth birthday, Richard enlisted and became a proud member of the U.S. Navy and later a proud veteran of WWII. After leaving the military he followed in his Father's footsteps and became a contractor. He was a member of Medford Neighborhood Church, VFW 1833, and DAV Chapter 8.

Richard is survived by his wife, Mary Anne whom he married May 6, 2000; son, Paul; daughter, Richie Sue; two sisters, Geraldine and Scharlene; and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews. He was preceded in death by brother, Clifford and sons, Russell, Christopher, and Kendall.

A memorial service is scheduled for 2:00 p.m., Saturday, August 8, 2015 at Medford Neighborhood Church, 1812 E. Stewart, Medford, Oregon. Pastor Lee Gregory will officiate the service. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Richard's life.
