To the entire Powell family, My heartfelt condolences and sympathies on the passing of Wheeler. I have fond memories of the stories he would tell and of the special times I went golfing with him and Sonny. Most of all I will always remember him as a true southern gentleman who loved his wife and family unconditionally. God bless you all, Bob Parker
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

To all the family of Wheeler Powell, my deepest sympathy. I knew Wheeler as the uncle of my good friend Elizabeth Pittman Dux. Elizabeth's mother Rebecca Powell Pittman was Wheeler's sister. I spent many a happy summer day at the Powell family home at Mountain Lake Colony, and Wheeler and his family often were there at the same time. I also remember that Wheeler and Bunny once took me and Elizabeth to dinner at the Poinsett Club when I was home visiting Elizabeth after the death of her mother Rebecca. I send my deepest condolences to Bunny and the girls. -- Sheila McLawhorn Miller
