Obituary for Charles "Butch" William Powles

Charles William Powles "Butch", age 72, of Grant, passed away on June 25, 2020 at his residence in Grant. He was born on September 15, 1947 to Charles and Eloda (Fowler) Dorn in Grant.
Charles is survived by his significant other of twenty eight years, Sandra Califf; daughters, Lillie Marie (Bradley) Morse, Jennifer Welch; son, Herb (Jenn) Welch; grandsons Zachery Morse, Alex Morse, Tyler Mills, Cody Mills, Caleb Welch, BJ Welsh, Jordan Welsh; granddaughter, Jenna Cole; great-grandson, Tristyn Mills; great-granddaughter, Ava Mills; sister, Charlene (Don) Hutchinson; niece, Susan (Pete) Sprank; nephew, David (Rebecca) Anderson; and many great nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents. Charles was a good man. He was a loved employee of Chinook Campground, Grant, MI. He was known for his fiery spirit but also his willingness to be there for others. If he didn't have something "smart" to say, he wasn't Butch. A memorial service will be held at Chinook Campground in the pavilion with a luncheon to follow. Contributions can be made to Fields-McKinley Funeral Home.
