Guy M. Powell died at an early age

My grandfather, Guy Moreland Powell died on 19 October 1960, in Kerrville, as a very young man at the age of 58. He sadly suffered and was taken by a glioma, a malignant brain tumor.  He was crippled at the age of 7 from “tuberculosis of the hip”.  He wore a four inch built-up sole on his shoe but that didn’t stop him from living a life full of community service and help to all. His obituary tells his story and was written by my grandmother, Agnes. I remember him so well and miss him.  Many from Kerrville might remember him also.
