Thomas “Tommy” Littleton Powell, Jr., 76 of Keysville, VA, entered his heavenly home September 24, 2021. He was born on November 19, 1944 in Newport News, VA.
Tommy was a faithful member of Union Grove Baptist Church and loved his church family. Tommy thrived in the outdoors, making a living farming and surveying the land. He loved hunting, trail riding on his mule, Bonnie, and “shaking a leg” on the nearest dance floor. Tommy was a craftsman from the tobacco field to the Rook table. A man with much wisdom and advice, he was a loving dad, friend and neighbor. Whatever “hand” life dealt, he faced it with strength, humor and courage, including his most recent battle with ALS.
Tommy is survived by his children: Cindy Felton (Leigh), Troy Powell (Tracy), Stacey Seals (Chad) and Monty Powell (Lisa). Seven grandchildren: Skylar, Slade, Saxton and Sloan Seals, Logan Powell (Lilly), Olivia and Gunner Powell. Mother of his children, Vonda Cochran. A beloved significant other, Debra Morris. Siblings: Annie McReynolds (Mack), Tammie Jackson (Charles). He is preceded in death by his father, Thomas L. Powell, Sr., his mother, Frances Powell and his brother, Layton Powell.
“We are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and home with the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 5:8
