   Bob was born on September 13, 1921 on his mother's family farm one mile from Willard, Georgia which is an insignificant little place now dried up and blown away. He spent his early years in Atlanta; he graduated from North Fulton High and the University of North Carolina.
   He served, without distinction, in the US Marine Corps from May 1941 to February 1946, was honorably discharged as captain, and entered the life insurance business in Lancaster, PA.  He moved from Hartford, Connecticut to St. Louis in 1949 as a pilgrim for a large eastern insurance company (CIGNA).  In 1960 he founded the consulting firm of Powers Carpenter & Hall: now the St. Louis office of Buck Consultants, a Xerox Company.
   He was happily married four times and has fairly well balanced and productive children. Michael R. Powers of Monaco; Kate Powers of Monaco; Rainey Fogiel of Dallas and Drake Powers of St. Louis.
   He is survived by his longtime friend, Suzy Seldin; five grandchildren: Shane, Natasha, Patrick, Natalie, and Casey; and two great-grandchildren. He lived a uniquely happy and satisfying life but never learned to putt very well.
