Join us in remembering Donald Webster Powell, a remarkable individual who lived a fulfilling life dedicated to his passions and the well-being of others, by making a donation to the Alzheimer's Association.

Dear friends and supporters,

We kindly request your generous contributions to honor the memory of Donald Webster Powell, a remarkable individual who touched the lives of many. Mr. Powell, born on November 23, 1942, in Eden, NC, sadly departed from us on July 31, 2023, in Wilmington, NC, at the age of 80.

Donald led a fulfilling life dedicated to various passions and the well-being of those around him. As an avid hunter, he found solace in immersing himself in the beauty of nature. His enthusiasm for sports was undeniable, with his favorite teams including the Tarheels and the Washington Redskins. Spending time with his hunting buddies and cherished family brought him immense joy.

Donald's educational journey led him to graduate from Appalachian Teachers College, where he laid the foundation for his future successes. He courageously served in Vietnam as a member of the Army, earning the esteemed Bronze Star for his remarkable bravery.

In this challenging time, we come together to pay tribute to Donald and support a cause close to his heart. The Alzheimer's Association was chosen as the beneficiary of this fundraising event to honor the memory of a man who deeply cared for the well-being of others. By making a donation to this worthy organization, we can make a meaningful impact in the fight against Alzheimer's disease.

Donald was preceded in death by his parents, Robert "Spencer" Powell and Catherine Webster Powell, as well as his beloved wife, Gail Rutledge Powell. Their memory will forever be cherished by those who knew them.

Survived by his loving family, Donald's son Andrew (Nicole), grandson Spencer "Brooks" Powell, and brothers Robert "Bobby" Dale and John "Rodney" Powell, we take solace in the bond they share and the memories that bring them comfort.

Services to celebrate Donald's life will be held on August 19th, 2023, at 7:00 PM at First Wesleyan Church, located at 607 Church St. in Eden, NC 27288. We invite you to join us in remembering and honoring this remarkable individual whose impact will forever resonate within our hearts.

In lieu of flowers, we kindly request that you consider making a donation to the Alzheimer's Association. By contributing to this cause, we can work towards finding a cure for this devastating disease and supporting those affected by it.

Thank you for your unwavering support and generosity as we come together in remembrance and support of Donald Webster Powell. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of others.

Warmest regards,

Hannah Bonagura
