Malcolm Powell, 74, of Issaquah, WA entered the presence of his Lord on November 8, 2021, after an extended illness.
Malcolm was born to Archie and Renabelle Powell in Johnsonville, South Carolina. After graduation from Hannah High School in 1965, he served honorably for 6 years in the US Navy.
Following military service, Malcolm obtained an engineering degree in California where he met his wife. They moved to Washington state when he was hired by a major utility company. He worked in power plant engineering for the remainder of his career.
His hobby was always work! At home that meant gardening, various remodeling projects and fixing whatever was broken. In the community that meant volunteering for Bridge Disability Ministries fixing wheelchairs, working on church ministry projects, and helping people in need.
Malcolm will be remembered as a man of deep faith in Christ who worked hard but knew how to tell a good story. His goal was to make others laugh and smile as often as possible. His kindness and sense of humor will be missed by his family and all who knew him.
Malcolm was predeceased by his parents, Archie and Renabelle Powell and brother Donald. He is survived by a large loving family: his wife, Eunice, two children, Marcel Parker and Jonathan Powell, siblings Bruster Powell, Archie Powell, Fannie Poston, Billy Powell Ford, and James, as well as cousins, nieces and nephews, and great nieces and nephews too numerous to count.
