Collin Emmett Powers

Collin (Cole) Emmett Powers, our beautiful son, brother, nephew, and cousin, died peacefully in his sleep on July 18, 2020. He was born April 2, 1988 to Brian and Julie (Eppinga) Powers in Detroit, Michigan. Cole was a wonderful son to his parents, and the best big brother his sister, Devin Powers, could ever hope to have.

In addition to immediate family, Cole leaves behind his maternal grandparents, Peter Eppinga, Thelma and Warren Vernier; Aunts and Uncles: Maureen Powers, Diane (Ed) Powers-Gallagher, Robert (Donna) Powers, Lisa (Frank) Delano, Scott (Michelle) Eppinga, Diane (Neal) Farquhar, and Tracey Miller. Cousins Edrick (Jennifer) Taib, Maria, Nathan and Jenna Taib, Patrick (Kim) Gallagher, Michael (Kim) and Gordon Powers, Mollie, Andrew, Noah, and Olivia Delano, Max and Conor Schmidt, as well as little Ava, whom he loved and treasured from afar. He was predeceased by his Powers Grandparents, Emmett and Evelyn, his Uncle Richard Powers, and his very special cousin, Kerry Gallagher.

Cole had countless friends, as well, who could turn to him for help and advice, which he gave without judgment. He was known for his wit and his wisdom, his charismatic personality, and his infectious smile.

Cole trained as a chef and worked in the restaurant industry for most of his adult life. He loved music, had a beautiful singing voice and traveled to several European countries on choir tours. He had an intuitive intelligence that was apparent to everyone he met. He was a film buff, an avid reader and could always be looked to for the most appropriate bon mot at happy occasions.

Although he was with us for only 32 years, Cole led a full and happy life in a short time. His warm and generous heart made the world a better place for those who were lucky enough to know him. His absence from our lives will be profound.

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE IN GATHERING INFORMATION: ANY PUBLIC GATHERING AND/OR SERVICES WILL TAKE PLACE AT A LATER DATE. THERE WILL NOT BE ANY PUBLIC VISITATION ON SATURDAY, JULY 25th AS PREVIOUSLY INDICATED.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Cole's name can be made to All About Animals Rescue, 23451 Pinewood Street, Warren, MI 48091
