This is so belated but I still wanted to share with David's family and friends what they already know...David was a wonderful, special person. I spent four years with David at what was then known as Nyack Missionary College. He was my tennis doubles partner and he was married to my sister for several years. We lost touch through the years but recently we had reconnected on the phone and email. When my wife found out that David had written books and was a professor at Yale she said that she was impressed that I even knew somebody that smart! However, the thing that I'll always remember about Dave is not his brains, but his sense of humor. He was a great friend who was always fun to be around. May God continue to comfort Barbara and his children. Rick Laney, email: laneyfg@gmail.com

Dearest Family,
I had the privilege of being taught by Dr. Powell in clinical supervision. He approached this field with great dignity and humility. He will be greatly missed~

We know much will be said about David Powell's contributions to the field of Substance Abuse treatment field, especially in the area of clinical supervision. We would like to add that this kind, gentle, brilliant, man's contributions to the men and women of the US Navy and Marine Corps continues today with the use of his Blended Model for clinical supervision via the Clinical Preceptorship Program. I will always remember his deep respect for military members and his fondness for the counselors who provided them treatment. He selected a wonderful group of preceptors, who responded to his energy and commitment by providing invaluable training to Navy and Marine counselors for over 35 years. These counselors became some of the best providers in the nation. We have all benefitted from his presentations which were enlightening and full of humor.
He was a great mentor, friend, and family man. In his last years he took his love and compassion for others to those suffering in many different parts of the world. He touched so many and he will be missed by so many. Fair winds and following seas and a heart-felt Semper Fi from all who knew you and from those who did not but recovered because of the work you did.

Dear Barbara and family,
My deepest sympathy goes out to you at this sad time. I feel so fortunate to have know David and all the wonderful tributes he has done for different countries and their people.
I have purchased "Come, Ye Thankful People, Come" in memory of David...the OSA choir will be singing this anthem on Sunday, November 24th.
You are in my heart and prayers.
