Obituary for David G. Powell

David G. Powell, 94, of White Plains, passed away February 13, 2020. David was born May 6, 1925 in Chicago, IL to Jack and Ethel (nee Rabinowitz) Goodman. David served in the US Army, and was owner of Powell Accessories Retail Lighting Store, retiring at the age of 92. He was a musician, vaudeville entertainer, and was in the USO entertaining the troops during WWII. In 1952 David married his wife, Caryl Powell, in White Plains. She predeceased him in 2010.
A wonderful warm and generous man who adored his family, entertaining and living life to the fullest. He had a wonderful sense of humor and a memory for jokes, spontaneously coming up with a joke on the spot. He and his wife Caryl traveled the world with the USO entertaining the troops and had wonderful memories and countless hours of stories to share. He had a passion for the lighting business and enjoyed talking with all the customers. He enjoyed good food, fine dining, lighting the candles, and most of all having all his family together.
David is survived by his four children; Ruth (Peter) Clinton of Orange Park Fl, Brian (Fran) Powell of Greenwich CT, Sari (Larry) Maenza of Shenorock NY and Paul (Bree) Powell of East Windsor N.J, nine grandchildren; Curtis Maenza, Heather Geisler, Nicholas Maenza, Kimberly Clinton, Steven Clinton, Jason Clinton, Rebecca Powell, Brady Powell, and Cooper Powell, and three great grandchildren and one on the way. Besides his loving wife Caryl, David is predeceased by his sister Myrna Bermant.
A graveside service will be held Monday 11am at Riversville in Greenwich, CT

My wife Selene and I and our children Scott and Alyssa and Mark send our love and condolences to you all. David was such a warm and kind person, and great to be around. We loved getting together with him and Carol. They were a great couple, and they will always be with us. Aunt Ethel and Uncle Jack are two people I will always remember fondly as well.

You and your children are always welcome to visit us in the Great Northwest and stay with us.
