Owen Jacob Powell, 20, passed away on May 22nd 2019 in Chinook Montana. Owen was born on June 27, 1998 to Zane and Jeannie Powell in Havre Montana. He attended Zurich Elementary and then graduated from Chinook High School in 2016. In High school he played football and was part of the 2015 State Championship team. He also loved to wrestle and won various titles. He then went to get his Associates Degree in Applied Science at Helena College. Owen loved to weld, fabricate, work with his hands and was certified in all welding types. He worked for Rainbow Irrigation of Chinook, Custom II Metal Fab in Bozeman, and more recently for Moxley Construction in Chinook.
Owen was fisherman, hunter, gold panner, chaser of blondes, and cared for his pet fish. He also enjoyed eating, and strawberries were one of his favorites. Owen was an outgoing, friendly, positive, willing to give the shirt off his back sorta of man. He was selfless, kind hearted, adventurous and fun loving. His big smile shone on anyone he talked to and everyone who knew him loved him. Our memories of him are too numerous to write. Perhaps this sums him up “Get ‘R Done!”.
