Del'Vonte Terry Powell

July 9, 1994 ~ April 18, 2020 (age 25)

Obituary

Del’Vonte Terry Powell the loving son born to Michell T. Williams and Brian S. Powell in Detroit, Michigan on July 9, 1994.  He was the second oldest of four brothers.  On September 21, 2012 Del and Olga introduced to the world Daylen Powell, the heir to Del’s throne.  

 

He graduated from Lincoln High School with the Class of 2013; during which time he played basketball for the Lincoln Rails.  He went on to pursue his dreams at Iowa State University.  

 

Del loved being on the basketball court and everyone that knew him could tell you that was his second home.  When he wasn’t on the court you could catch him on XBOX One with his right hand man, his son Daylen, or at the gym with his boys that became brothers over the years.

 

Del was a loving father, devoted to his son, and a protector of his family.  On April 18, 2020 Del’s life was shortened along with his cousin, Ramon due to a senseless act of gun violence.  He was preceded in death by two sisters in infancy, Miracle and Destiny; his grandmothers Diane Jewell and Rose Jewell.

 

Del was an intelligent young man with endless God-given talents; and his legacy will continue live on through his son, Daylen Powell; his mother, Michell Williams; his four brothers, Brian, Devon, De’Marko, and Ja’Voni; and a host of relatives and many good friends.
