BoBo was born on March 31, 1949, in Florence County, son of the late Richard Powell and Julia Stone Powell. He was a pure innocent soul and never complained. His sense of humor was one of a kind, along with his loveable, sneaky self. BoBo enjoyed watching TV, mostly westerns like Gun Smoke and The Rifleman, while drinking his sweet tea. He loved going to the races with Jessie and he loved Burtus, the dog.
Surviving are his niece, Felisa (Jessie) Parker Lynch of Timmonsville; nephews, Scott (Dodi) Parker of Lake City and Charles (Brenda) Parker of Quinby; 3 great nephews and 6 great nieces.
BoBo was preceded in death by his sister, Bongie Parker; brother-in-law, James L. Parker; nephew, Jimmy W. Parker.
