James "Jim" Alan Powell Sr.

November 12, 1955 — January 30, 2024


With profound sorrow, we announce the passing of our loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather

and brother. James Powell Sr. Jim departed this world unexpectedly, yet peacefully, January 30, 2024, at

the age of 68 at his home in Boulder Montana.

Jim was born on November 12th, 1955, in Butte, Mt. He is the second son to Nina and Don Powell of

Boulder, Mt. He spent his younger years growing up in Boulder where he attended school, spent time

hunting, fishing, camping, and making lifelong friends and connections.

On October 23rd, 1974, James married the love of his life, Peggy Verrall. Jim worked at the Montana

Developmental Center in Boulder as Maintenance - Groundskeeper, retiring on May 29, 2008, after 32

years and 11 months. Of course, Jim, never being one to sit still, then went to work for RS Guilio and

Bullock Contracting, where he got to do the work, he really enjoyed, running heavy equipment, and

driving Truck. When he did have free time, he liked to spend it with his kids, grandkids, and friends, you

would often find him fishing the causeway or below the dam, going to his Tuesday night dart league,

sharing his homemade bacon or other recipes he recently discovered with his close friends, and stepping

in from time to time to play some keno and catch up on the local gossip. Above all else Jim was a loving

husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and a loyal friend to all. He would welcome just about

anyone in with open arms and kind words. Jims’s passing is being felt far beyond just the members of

his family, this loss is being felt deep within his community as well.

Jim leaves behind his children, Jim (Stacey), Shane (Jason), Kelly and Shelly. Brothers, John (Tammi) Jay,

Jeff (Anna), He also leaves behind his many grandchildren, Riley, Kaleb, Hayley, Mason, Joan, Jazlynn,

Marshal, Gemma, Anthony, Ethan, Dakota, Kennedy, Jake, Jackie, Jennifer, Katlyn, and Jamie. Great

Grandchildren, Hylia and Willow. And numerous nieces and nephews.

Jim was preceded in death by his wife Peggy, and parents Nina and Don.

Per Jim's request there will be no funeral services, but the family is planning to have a celebration of his life

this summer to be announced later.
