James “Jimmy” Alton Powell, 62, of Mason City, died Friday, June 11, 2021, at MercyOne North Iowa Medical Center in Mason City.

Arrangements are pending at this time.

Jimmy was born August 29, 1958, the son of Roger and Margaret (Fike) Powell in Mason City. He married Debra McElroy on October 14, 1978, at the Little Brown Church in Nashua. She preceded him in death on November 1, 2020.

Jimmy grew up and attended school in Mason City. He began his career roofing and later would work at Lehigh Cement Company, IMI Cornelius, various construction roles and most recently at Plumb Supply, all in Mason City.

Jimmy was a fun-loving, hard-working man who was always ready to lend a helping hand. He enjoyed riding his bike, floating down the river on a canoe or kayak, and camping. More than anything, he valued and cherished all the memories made with his family, grandchildren and friends.

Jimmy is survived by his children, Melissa (Jason) Farrell, Clayton Powell and Brandon (Sarah) Powell all of Mason City; ten grandchildren, Gordy, Jason Jr. (Bri), Brooke (Adam), Summer (Brock), Austin, Alexis, Olivia, Madilyn, Colton and Dylan; four great-grandchildren, Charlotte, Penelope, Kaison and Ferryn; sister, Jodie (Larry) Nauman; siblings-in-law, Al (Vickie) Davis, Lori (Scott) DeVary and Leslie (Justin) Tarr; step-mother-in-law, Lana McElroy; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife; daughter-in-law, Sara Powell; parents-in-law; and his dog, Deogie.
