He was born October 2, 1941 in Youngstown to the late David William and Mary Jane (Reedy) Powell.
At the age of 5, his family moved to California where he graduated from Upland High School in 1959 and enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. His military service included stations in South Korea and Sheppard Air Force Base, Wichita Falls, Texas where he met and married the love of his life, Carolyn White Powell, in 1962.
Following his discharge from the military, Dave and Carolyn owned and operated David Powell Construction Company until his retirement, at which time, they moved back to Lake Milton and then, North Jackson, Ohio.
Dave was a member of Canfield United Methodist Church, the Aut Mori Grotto and the Argus Lodge #545. He was passionate about boating and enjoyed membership in the Lake Milton Boat Club where his grandfather was a founding member serving as the first Commodore. Dave’s prized possession was a 1954 Chris-Craft boat.
He enjoyed collecting antique toys and vintage model trains, fishing and golfing, however, his proudest moments involved time spent with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Dave is survived by his wife, Carolyn; three sons and their wives, Shannan and Lynne Powell of Kailua, Kona, Hawaii, Daniel and Liz Powell of South Pasadena, California and David and Pam Powell of Murrieta, California; grandchildren, Brandon Powell, Aaron and Nicole Powell, Zachary Powell and Lauren Powell; two great-grandchildren, Angelina and David; a sister, Deborah Glaeser of Camarillo, California and a host of in-laws, nieces, nephews and cousins.
