Payton Powell

July 5, 1999 — March 10, 2022


Payton Powell, beloved son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew, cousin, and friend passed from this life on Wednesday, March 10, 2022, at the age of 22 after a battle with addiction. He is survived by his parents Tera Powell and Jason Wess, his brothers, James Powell III, Travis Powell, his sisters Leighann Powell, Katelynn Powell, grandparents Doug and Carolyn Bracewell, aunts, uncles, and many more family members and friends.

Payton was born on July 5, 1999, in Gainesville, FL. He resided in Ocala, FL at the time of his death. He enjoyed fishing, being a country boy and spending time making people laugh. Payton was so much more than his struggles. Anyone that truly knew him, knew he had such a big heart. He loved fiercely and deeply, and we take comfort in knowing Payton is now at peace. Payton had an amazing sense of humor and an infectious laugh, and always loved a good prank. If you know, you know.

Payton was taken from us far too soon and will be missed dearly. Services will be held Saturday, March 12, 2022, at 1PM at Countryside Funeral Home 9185 NE Jacksonville Road, Anthony, FL 32617.

“You never said I’m leaving, you never said goodbye. You were gone before we knew it, and only God knew why. A million times we needed you, a million times we cried. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place that no one could ever fill. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn’t go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God took you home”
