HORTENSE —Bobby “Fishbone” Powell Jr., 58 of Hortense, passed away Thursday, May 7, 2020, at his residence after a long, brave battle with cancer. Powell was born Decem- ber 8, 1961 in Brunswick to Bobby Roy Powell and Lelia Christine Turner Powell. He moved to Hortense from Brunswick 27 years ago. Powell enjoyed many things in his life, but some would say spending time with his loved ones was what he cherished the most. He was a good man, always helping anyone who needed anything. Powell was very hardworking and would give you the shirt off his back. In his spare time, you could find Powell at Golden Isles Speedway where he spent many Friday and Saturday nights. Whether it was rooting for his friends or behind the wheel of his No. 13 race car, Powell was just happy he was there. Two of his greatest accomplishments were the track championships he won at Golden Isles Speedway in 1994 and 1999. Powell also enjoyed going to the store and buying scratch-off tickets, sitting by the fire with a cold Busch beer, watching the Georgia Bulldogs play football, and always having any type of racing on the TV. In addition to his parents, Powell was preceded in death by a daughter, Anna Marie Powell; and a sister, Barbara Brown. Powell is survived by the mother of his girls, B.J. Powell of Hortense; his daughters, Lelia Chaney (Gregory) of Jacksonville, Fla., and Kala Eason (Brad) of Dallas, Ga.; granddaughters, Alyssa Chaney and Abigail Eason; his companion, Lucy Kern of Hortense; sisters, Gina Erdman (John) of St. Louis, Mo., Adelia Knight of St.Marys, Ga.; and numerous nieces and nephews. A service to celebrate Powell’s life will be held on Saturday, August 1, 2020, at 10 a.m., at Chapman Funeral Chapel. Chapman Funeral Chapel & Crematory is in charge of the arrangements.
