Stanley John Powell, beloved husband of Helen Powell of Calgary, passed away suddenly on Thursday, April 10, 2008 at the age of 81 years.
Stanley was born in Vilna, Alberta. He was an exploration accountant for 30 years for Shell Oil. Stanley had a love of horses, dogs, gardening, golf, and watching hockey.
