Ross POWELL Obituary

Pastor Ross (R.G.) Powell passed peacefully into the Lord’s presence surrounded by dear friends and family in the Elk Valley Hospital in Fernie BC on February 3, 2023.

Ross was born November 22, 1952, in Edmonton Alberta to Bill and Doreen Powell. He grew up in Regina and Saskatoon.

Ross was called into the ministry 1977, when he was introduced to Jesus. He and Dorothy pastored in Saskatoon, Prince Albert, Sparwood, Logan Lake, Priestville, Saskatoon and Sparwood. He and Dorothy have pastored Sparwood and Sparwood Christian Centre for 19 years.

Ross and Dorothy travelled to many places in the world together but preferred the mission field to tourism. Ross and Dorothy ministered internationally in Russia, Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Columbia for many years.

Ross was known for his love of Jesus and his love for people. He was known for wisdom beyond his years, he moved strongly in the Gifts of the Spirit and the prophetic. He loved to see the captives set free and selflessly took the time to see that this was accomplished, whether through salvation, healing, or deliverance, frequently over a cup of Coffee. He rejoiced in seeing Jesus transform lives. Ross was Pastor, friend, brother, mentor, and spiritual father to many over the years.

Ross is survived by his loving wife and soulmate of 48 years Dorothy Powell, his siblings Dan (Janet) and family, Robb and family, and Tom (Susan) and family, our chosen daughters; Marisol and family of Heredia Costa Rica, Gretchen and family of Managua Nicaragua, Yubelka and family of Managua Nicaragua, and Allison and family of Saskatoon and a large international extended family.

Ross was predeceased by his parents Bill and Doreen Powell, in-laws Donald and Marie Tralnberg, Pastors Ivan and Marcie Antoniuk and numerous dear members of our extended family.

Thank you to Dr. Trebble and the staff of the Elk Valley Hospital for the excellent care of Ross in his final days.
