A night out with John could be the best night of your life but you may end up with a court date and a hangover. Anyone who knew John would say he was one of the funniest people they ever met. He had no filter and would say any and all that was on his mind. John could take over a stage like nobody’s business and make a guitar beg for mercy. He was the most selfless person and would give you the shirt off his back. He was loved by everyone who really knew him. He could make anyone laugh and would be the first to tell you he was the “baddest guitar player of all time” He will be sorely missed. John is preceded in death by his brothers, Ronald and Billy Powell. John is survived by his loving mother, Margaritt Nolan of St. George, GA; his daughters, Lajona Powell and Shauna Powell; his longtime companion, Donna North; his sisters, Miranda (Kyle) Milne and Myra Milne; and grandson, Everest Claxton.
