Benjamin Keith Powers
May 31, 1971 - August 29, 2023

Ben was born in Greensboro, N. C. and grew up in Caswell, Yaupon, Long Beach, and Wrightsville Beach.  He was a talented artist and could draw and paint anything. Ben was also a skilled painter, plumber, and craftsman for many years with his own painting and home improvement business. His family knew if they needed something fixed or remodeled, from cars to houses, he could figure it out and do it right (Bet).

He was an avid surfer and loved the ocean (Pick up your trash). He was very much loved by his family and friends and they miss him terribly.

Ben is survived by his son, Taylor Powers of Wilmington; his parents, Keith and Carol Powers of Wilmington; his sisters; Michelle Powers of Boiling Spring Lakes, Tara Powers Cuffney of Charlotte, Haley Powers of Wilmington, his nephews and niece and his aunts. He was preceded in death by his son, Cody Mintz, and his mother, Barbara McDonnell.

A service will be conducted on a later date.

    So many memories! You will be missed. Through all of the years if needing a helping hand you would always be there. A talented man. Your absence will impact many. May God wrap his arms around you, for you are finally home. We will miss you down here. We will continue to watch over Taylor, Michelle and the families and friends. I am sure you will walk with us from Heaven above and help guide us through our journeys. (Bet)
