Thomas D. Powers, 87, of Las Vegas, passed peacefully in his home, surrounded by family on December 28, 2020.
Whether you knew Tom casually, intimately or anywhere in between there are a few things he made sure we all knew were of the greatest importance in his life. The first being his unfading love and devotion, for over 50 years to his best friend, his partner in life, his wife, Barbara. Naturally followed by a love just as great for all of his children and grandchildren. If you knew him in retirement, you knew that his dog Nicky was part of his family and provided an unconditional love and companionship till his very end.
If his 55 plus years in banking is not how you met him, it was something he took great pride in and was always eager to express his gratitude for truly enjoying the work he did.
His dedication to the Catholic Church and his faith in God are what helped him through some very hard times in life, including the most tragic losses of his first born son, Roy and more recently his granddaughter, Caera Jean, both of whom were taken far too early but forever in his heart and prayers.
"Now, stop me if I told ya this one before." Last but not least of things everyone knew him for, was his gift of storytelling which, in his retirement he took up a notch by writing and publishing his novel, Mother, Father, Son.
