Obituary for Thomas Allen Powers

Thomas Allen Powers, 57, of Staunton, passed away Wednesday, September 19, 2018 at his home. Allen was born July 12, 1961 in Harrisonburg, and is the son of Rufus Allen and Barbara (Wood) Powers of Grottoes.

He graduated from Fort Defiance High School and enjoyed playing in the marching band. He also received the honor of marching in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree from Georgetown University with a major in foreign languages. He received his Master’s Degree in business from James Madison University. He enjoyed teaching German to his students at JMU.

One of Allen’s favorite hobbies was to play a friendly, competitive game of Rook with his grandparents and younger brother Doug. He would always team up with his Memaw and they would try to “shoot the moon”. He enjoyed hearing the stories from his grandparents as they were growing up. He loved animals especially his cat “Muffin”.

In addition to his parents, he is survived by his brother, Doug, and his wife, Vicky of Grottoes; and his sister, Susan Arey, and her husband Sam, of Mt. Sidney. Allen also had a number of nieces and nephews: Whitney, Timothy, Luke, and Cheyenne Good, Emily and Will Powers.

There will be a private graveside service at Edgewood Cemetery in Grottoes.
