Powers, Robert W. 
age 92, passed away
surrounded by his loving family on Friday afternoon, July 25, 2014.
Radiating the care and good humor that he was known for throughout his life, he prepared these words to serve as his obituary:
   Bob was born on September 13, 1921 on his mother's family farm one mile from Willard, Georgia which is an insignificant little place now dried up and blown away. He spent his early years in Atlanta; he graduated from North Fulton High and the University of North Carolina.
   He served, without distinction, in the US Marine Corps from May 1941 to February 1946, was honorably discharged as captain, and entered the life insurance business in Lancaster, PA.  He moved from Hartford, Connecticut to St. Louis in 1949 as a pilgrim for a large eastern insurance company (CIGNA).  In 1960 he founded the consulting firm of Powers Carpenter & Hall: now the St. Louis office of Buck Consultants, a Xerox Company.
   He was happily married four times and has fairly well balanced and productive children. Michael R. Powers of Monaco; Kate Powers of Monaco; Rainey Fogiel of Dallas and Drake Powers of St. Louis.
   He is survived by his longtime friend, Suzy Seldin; five grandchildren: Shane, Natasha, Patrick, Natalie, and Casey; and two great-grandchildren. He lived a uniquely happy and satisfying life but never learned to putt very well.
Services: A memorial service, planned by Bob, will be at 3 p.m., Friday, August 1, at the Ethical Society, 9001 Clayton Rd, St Louis, MO. 
In lieu of flowers, memorial
donations should be made to Mentor St. Louis (online at http://www.bgcstl.org) or mailed to: Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis, 2901 North Grand Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63107.
