John "Mike" Michael Powers,76, passed away Monday June 12, 2023, at his home in Watson La. Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday. Unseen, unheard, but always near. So loved, so missed, so very dear. He was a faithful companion, stepfather, grandpa (Pops) and friend to many.

Mike loved to hunt, fish and watch LSU sports. He was a member of Greenwell Springs Baptist Church and looked forward to Sunday Bible study.
He is survived by his loving companion of 20 years, Dee Oram; stepchildren Chris Felder (Jamie), and Summer Wells (Frank); step grandchildren Christian (Taylor), Carson (Gabe), Bradley, Berklee and Lauren; a special nephew and hunting buddy, Noah Davison; other family and friends.
Mike was preceded in death by his parents Randolph and Juanita Powers, sister Donna Morvant, brother Thomas Powers and son Michael "Little Mike" Powers.
