I will miss ||GEN||Powell. He had a great sense of humor and the most contagious laugh I have ever heard. He was an excellent team player of COD2. I didn’t know him away from the game, but I am sure that he was a fine person. He will be greatly missed by all.

I am so sorry to hear that ||GEN||Powell passed away. I am glad that since the short time I have played with the Generals I got a chance to play with Powell. Powell will be missed deeply. Jr if there is any we can do for you as a clan and your friends please let us know. It is cool to see that a family can spend time together playing COD2. I cant wait til my son is old enough to play with me. Our prayers go out to your family

John will always be remembered as {TAMS} Mr Indidana to me. Yes, he has such a way of making all who played the game with him laugh. He has been missed since he joined the Generals, but now he is with God, and God must have needed him more than his gaming families, or even his own personal family. 

My thoughts and prayers are with his family. I'm sure since he was always laughing while playing, he was the same during his family time as well. 

Rest in Peace {TAMS} are missed.

To the family and friends of John (affectionately known in the gaming world as Powell or Indiana), 

I am truly at a loss. My heartfelt sympathies and prayers go out to to everyone who knew John. 

I personally did not know John as well as others when he was in TAMS. I do remember a few times we were being used for cannon fodder on nights when the old TDM COMP team needed people to practice with them and we would simply hide and snipe from the bakery until they found us LOL. 

Again to friends and family all my love and prayers at this difficult time.

||GEN|| Powell, From my experince playing online with the man, he always made me smile, and laugh he could put anyone in a good mood with his presence. I bet he's up there playing COD2 with the man upstairs kicking his butt like he used to do to me (yea everyone kicks Crumms butt) but anyways he will be missed Powell and his family are in my prayers and thoughts

Post subject: "Fair Well to a General"

Gone be days and nights 
Filled with glorious frays and fights 
I have neither words nor knowledge which bring honor to your name 
I’ll stand and blow the bugle just the same 

Blow the bugle high and loud 
Blow the trumpet and break the shroud 
Remember Powell grand and true 
Remember Powell gray and green 

As the sun sets upon your day 
May you find peace along the way 
Your day is done 
Your battle won 

Generals, you may weep and you may cry 
For our fallen comrade on the field lies 
He is gone but not forgotten 
His spirit soaring brave and free 

Now let us all bow and pray 
Our fallen comrade has died upon this day

I was floored, nothing in life is fair and loosing a comrade, husband and father at such a young age is horrible. My families thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Powell I will miss you terribly. While we did not spend much time together online the times spent were truly enjoyable. You were always a gentleman and a true team player. It'll be a lot quieter around here without you and if the ||GEN||s can do anything for the family please let us know.

It's hard to believe that he is not still here with us! I enjoy playing cod2 with him. His laugh was something I love to hear. He never ever had anything bad to say about players from TAMS to GENS . He was a man of honor and dignity, people like him are hard to find and I will miss him a lot.

i came onto the GENs site for another reason but saw this. I am in awe. I got to play with Powell/Indiana a lot. I have tears in my eyes as I write this. WOW such a shock! What a great guy for the gaming community as a whole to lose. 

Powell/Indiana, you will be missed! My heart and prayers go out to your family, tboth in real life and to the GENs. 

I have so much more to say but it is hard to see the keys to type or the monitor to see what I am writing. 

Our condolences from 5150.

So very sorry for the loss of one of the good guys. When someone touches this many people in a gaming community, they must be someone special.

I did not have the honor of knowing him, but a death of a friend is as heart breaking as your own blood sometimes. Seeing how he already has three pages of people sending condolences, he must have been a great person. Remember the good times, that's what matters.

Well folks I write this in tears as I inform you a friend of mine, a friend of ours has passed away. ||GEN||Powell formerly {TAMs}Mr.Indiana has passed away. I do not know the details on his passing. Those of you that got to know him or even ever talk to him on TS know the great sorrow of his loss. His distinctive laugh and gentanly style always brought joy to others. He was one of the good guys. The kind of guy you really enjoyed to play with. 

Powell, I know your in heaven and I know you can see this. Thankyou for everything you have done to help make the gaming community a better place. Thankyou for being you and allowing all of us to enjoy our selves while we are around you. 

There is a JR Powell. I can't imagine his pain. JR Powell If you need anything from a sistering clan please let us know. We here at 5150 will be here for you. The same goes for any GEN. 

Here is the link to the GENs post announcing the passing.
