Coach Powers was my basketball coach for 4 years at Tipton High School. He was the best possible coach and mentor I could have ever had. He was instrumental in making me the person I am today. We are sure he has touched many lives and many of those people will remember him forever.

Bob was really a great basketball coach and was always great with students, student athletes. Bob knew his basketball help me in football and was very knowledgeable when it came to injury as a trainer. He will be missed by his family and all the friends he made over the years. He is in a better place now. RIP Bob

In my struggle to play basketball in high school, I was long on desire, but short on talent. Thank you Coach Powers for never giving up on me. To his family, and especially to my classmate Beth, I am sorry for your loss. With the help of God, may you find comfort in your many memories.

I had Coach Powers for PE 101. He was tough, it was rough, but he taught me more about myself than almost anyone else. Godspeed, Coach.

It makes me so very sad to hear of Coach Powers passing. He was such a kind, caring, gentle, and sincere person. He was completely genuine. I worked in the P.E. offices, and also had him as an instructor for many classes. He was always a special teacher, with a wonderful soul. He also had a great smile! I was very lucky to have him as a teacher during my S of O years, and it was an honor to know him. Rest in Peace Coach Powers, and thank you for everything. ❤⚘❤
