Victor Ross Powell

December 22nd, 2023

Victor (Vic), age 77 years, passed into the presence of his Lord on December 22, 2023 after a short but hard-fought battle with cancer.  In the days and hours leading up to his passing he was surrounded by his family and close friends.


He will be lovingly remembered and missed immensely by his wife Marcilla of 47 years.  His son, John (Jennifer) and daughter, Christine. His grandchildren, Jaydon, Eathan, Declan, Kimberlee, and Morgan.  His siblings, John (Anne), Jim, and Shirley (Carlos), his many nieces and nephews along with many other friends and family.  


Victor was born in Victoria, BC to Ross and Mary Powell where he lived before moving to Burnaby BC where he attended BCIT and later resided in Port Moody for more than 47 years.  Victor will always be remembered as the man who could fix anything and the countless hours he devoted to being the handyman at his church.  Victor’s quiet but determined nature will always be remembered.

The family extends heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all the medical staff at Royal Columbian Hospital for their generous care and attention they gave to Victor during his four-month hospital stay.

A celebration of life service will be held in the coming weeks.  For detailed information about the service please email the family at 


So sorry to hear of the deep loss of your husband, father and grandfather. Thanks be to God, and Savior Jesus Christ for the hope found in Him. We shall meet again.

We remember fondly our times with the Powell’s, Turner’s and Jon & Anita. Vic was usually quiet but in many conversations with him you always learned something. Our condolences and prayers for Marcilla, John , Christine and all the family

So sorry to hear this, sincere condolences to the family and friends. Rob and Jeri Nelson
