CASTLEWOOD, VIRGINIA – Curtis “Pedro” Powers, 67, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, December 16, 2020, at Smyth County Community Hospital, Marion, Virginia. He was born in Norton, Virginia, son of the late Willard Hermon Powers. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Leonard and Naomi Hughes. Pedro was a Christian, who loved the Lord. He was fun-loving, had a huge charismatic personality, and was having the most fun when he was cracking a joke or making others laugh. He enjoyed hunting and football. His greatest joy in life was his grandson Easton, whom he was so proud of. He showed nothing but courage and strength throughout the past 9 months of his life, facing each new challenge and diagnosis with faith, hope, and a smile. Despite his pain, Pedro came out as a hero and remained a fighter until the end. He is survived by his wife, Faye Powers; one daughter, Tonya Buffalow and husband, Brad of Castlewood, Virginia; his mother, Doris Louise Powers of St. Paul, Virginia; one sister, Nina Powers of St. Paul, Virginia; a special niece, Ann Powers, St. Paul, Virginia; special grandson, Lil’ E; and several aunts and uncles.
