Blythe, GA  – Hugh H. Powell, 60, entered into rest Thursday night, December 6, 2012 at his residence.  A private memorial service will be held at 2:00PM on Sunday, December 9, 2012 in the James Funeral Home Chapel with Dr. Earl Richards officiating.
Hugh lived all his life in Richmond County and for the last 11 years with the Reeves’ of Savannah Square Personal Care Home in Blythe where his job was doing the laundry. He loved music and could play the piano by ear. His favorite pastime was eating at different restaurants in Augusta—he especially loved Krystal burgers and CiCi’s pizza. He was always ready to go anywhere and everywhere and loved going on vacations with his buddies at the personal care home. Hugh was a kind, sweet, gentle man whose goal was to help others in any way he could. His compassionate, loving spirit will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Hugh was preceded in death by his parents, Margaret Gaskins Powell and Artemus Powell; his siblings, Margaret Gray and Roy Powell; and his canine friend, Daisy.  Survivors include his three siblings, Roger Gaskins Powell, Lois P. Baxley and Alice M. Padula; and his extended family at the personal care home, Chuck and Jerry Reeves, Joe Schmidt, Charles Jaillette, Bert Johnson, Henry Bailey, James Harmon, Alex Apperson, Suzanne St Pierre, Anita Mehl and Julia Pugh.
The family wishes to express their heartfelt gratitute to Savannah Square Personal Care Home for their compassionate love and care given to Hugh.  He felt very safe, loved and found immense happiness in your wonderful home.
After Glow

I’d like the memory of me
To be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an after glow
Of smiles when life is done,
I’d like to leave an echo
Whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times
And bright and summer days.
I’d like the tears of those who
Grieve, to dry before the sun,
Of happy memories that I
Leave when life is done.
