1963-1994
Frank, affectionately know to most people as "Jil Jimmy" and to
others as "Pumpkin" was born on St. Thomas, VJ. on January 7,1963 to
Mary Elizabeth and Frank Alfredo Powell, Jr. He was the eldest of their
four children.
He was baptized at the Bethany Moravian Church on St John where
he attended regularly as a youngster under the guidance of his parents.
He attended the Julius E. Sprauve School on St. John and later went on
to Westlake Job Core Center in Atlanta to study masonry and bricklaying.
Thereafter he remained on the mainland for a number of years and then
returned home.
Except for his parents, none of us here can say we really knew Frank.
As you look at him walk by, an opinion of him is formed. Then you get a
chance to chat with him and a new conclusion of him is reached. Anyone
who has brought home as many stray dogs as he did, can't be all that bad.
Even over the objections of his parents, Pumpkin would find a way to
sneak another one in. Believe it or not, he shared his meals with every
one of them.
Prank had a deep love for family. He was never too proud to ask for
their forgiveness when he knew he had done wrong or disappointed
them. He learned the hard way that, "there is no place like home."
When given the chance, "Lil Jimmy" has proven to be a hard worker
that could be depended upon. He was given such a chance by Mr. Elvis
Yearwood and was making great strides toward making a better life for
himself. He learned from his mistakes.
"Mommy, you so disgusting" will long be remembered. He said it as
he was nudged from his bed each morning by mommy, so he could get to
work on time. Those were his very words.
We are all saddened by his sudden tragic death. May his soul rest in
peace.

To My Brothe Frank ... I now find myself isolated in my room
wondering why this had to happen. Don't understand. Wedisagreedas
any caring brother and sister would because we loved each other. You
are gone to a better and special place, but you will still be in my heart.
Crying can't bring you back, so now I will sit and think of the good times
we had and keep those memories forever. I love you now and always.
Your Sis, Tanya
Der Frank ... May you rest in peace ahvays. You will be missed very
much. You are in God's hands now, safe and sound. Michael and I will
mis seeing you.
Loe Always, Joyce and Michad
As I sat at home yet again and got more sad news about yet another
member of my family, my mind ran on my oldest son who is the same age
as "LilJim." As long as there's life there's hope. "Lil Jim" is gone and he
will be sorely missed. But, if those of us who are alive can learn from his
mistake, then his dying was not in vain.
Auntie Iris, Burr, Murid, Charene, and Kerry

Frank, my Oldest, my Dearest Brother... So many happy memories of
all of us growing up together fill my mind. As I think of you I don't want
to imagine the pain and suffering you may have now. We were never
emotional when it came to expressing ourselves but somehow we knew
how we both felt about each other. You would want me to be strong but
how could I be after loosing my brother, my friend. You cannot Imagine
the hurt I feel in my heart right now. I wish I had the power to turn beck
the hands of time. But I know that with God your relatives and friends
will all be comforted. You will always be in my prayers. Please watch
over us. I love you.
Nancy
Farewell Jimmy, My Special Godchild ... you were taken from us so
suddenly. We were just speaking to each other hours before. I never
thought it would be the last time. We had good times together when you
were small, and as you grew up we were still close. ll miss you Jimmy. I
love you, but God loves you best
Nene Lancy




Jimmy... You'll always be our third brother we love you.
Sharon, Lster, Rehugh Jr., Shanett
You have always been there for us. You became a part of our lives. A
brother that we will miss. For that golden gate will open its door just like
we did and you will forever be in our thoughts. Rest In Peace,
Sharon Mango and the Boys
A dear nephew was my Lil Jimmy. I was always happy to see him. If
he got upset he knew Aunt Joyce was one of the persons he could talk to.
We loved him. And he knew that We miss him already.
Aunt Joyce, Aubrey, and Family

Hey dude was my way of saying hi. Every time I saw him we found
time to sit and chat I always knew where he was coming from. KJ and I
already miss you, and things were just beginning to go your way. Time
to let you go, it's hard but we have to.
Love, Sonia and K.J.
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Powell... It is with a sense of great sadness that I
extend my sympathies to you and your family in the loss of your son,
Frank Powell, Jr. Frank Jr. was a delightful person who was well known
by many people in the St John community. Although he had faced some
difficult times in life, he had begun to put his life back together. All who
knew him will remember him for his dedication and willingness to start a
new life. In the moment of grief, may the memories of Prank Jr. always
bring warm thoughts to your minds, and cherished memories to your
hearts. Remember that one day, we shall see him again. On behalf of my
wife Faye, and my entire staff, I offer our deepest condolences and
prayers for his soul to rest in eternal peace. Sincerely,
Almando "Rocy" Liburd
Senator-at-Larg, 20th Legislature of the Virgin Islands
