Obituary

With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Jack Evan Powell, husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle.

Jack was predeceased by his father Mansel, his mother Bernice, his brother in infancy John, and his father-in-law Don McLean. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Carrie, his daughters Krista Powell and Melanie (Kris) Molnar, his son Evan Powell (Jenna) and his grandchildren Rory, Jaxon, and Ryker. His sisters Gloria Powell Smith (Bryce) and Sandra (Bill) Gulka. His mother-in-law Mary McLean, brothers in law Daryl (Shirley) McLean and Lyndon (Brook) McLean, sisters in law Bev McLean, Donna (Logan) Pittman, and many nieces, nephews, and good friends.

Jack was born on August 23, 1952 in Yorkton to Mansel and Bernice (Smithson) Powell. He grew up in Ebenezer where he attended school and later on the Composite and Regional in Yorkton. Following school he worked for the Metropolitan stores in Weyburn, North Battleford, and Brandon until he joined Powell Lumber and Hardware with his father. He helped his father grow the business which would later become Powell Fertilizers and Chemicals, serving customers in Ebenezer, Yorkton, and surrounding areas for many years. He would get up early and stay late into the evening to help his customers get what was needed for their next day. He enjoyed every minute of it, especially meeting and visiting with anyone who came through his office doors over the 30 years.

While in business Jack also joined the Board of Directors of the Yorkton Credit Union, later known as Cornerstone Credit Union. He was very passionate about this position and very proud to say that he continued as a director for 25 years until September of this year. He met and worked with so many wonderful people over the years.

Jack married his wife Carrie on October 7, 1989. Together they raised their 3 children in Ebenezer and later on they moved to an acreage near Good Spirit Lake. They enjoyed many years of roads trips, fishing trips to Jan Lake, ski trips and adventures in Disneyworld, Hawaii, and Mexico.

Besides his family, Jack had many more joys in his life. He loved everything outdoors. From playing ball and broomball to golfing, hunting, snowmobiling, fishing, and later on gardening. He loved it all. Jack enjoyed many golf games and holidays with good friends. Carrie took up golfing just to get in on the fun. Hunting moose with his friends every fall was a must do even if hunting week was on his wedding anniversary. Snowmobiling in the winter was always a great   adventure for him whether it was cold or not. Many trips and many kilometers were put on sleds over the course of many years. His love for fishing started at a young age going to Jan Lake with the Powell family and continued as he took his own kids to fish with his cousins. The fishing continued with trips to the west coast, Deschambault Lake, and even in Mexico. It even led to Jack buying a share of Camp Grayling, a fly in fishing camp at Black Lake.  

If friends so desire memorial donations may be made in Jack’s memory to the Ebenezer Baptist church.

Jack's funeral service will be held on Friday, November 25 at 10:30 am from Ebenezer Baptist Church in Ebenezer.  The service will be livestreamed and available through the link below or by visiting Ebenezer Baptist Church's YouTube channel.
