Ken Powers

Kenneth Hull Powers, Jr of Birmingham, Alabama passed away on September 28, 2023 at the age of 73. Ken grew up in Birmingham and graduated from Berry High School in 1968. He graduated from UAB in 1972 and worked as a nuclear engineer at Southern Company for over 30 years.

Ken earned his degrees in mechanical engineering and physics and was known for his intelligence and wit. Though Ken was often described as a reserved and quiet man, those closest to him loved him for his bright personality and sense of humor. Stories of his wild antics made him the life of the party.

Beyond his professional achievements, he was a skilled builder, a world traveler, and most importantly a loving father.

He is predeceased by his parents, Kenneth and Frances, and his sister Kay. He is survived by his wife, Tina; his sisters, Martha, Karen, and Kelly; and his daughters, Katie and Zoe.

In lieu of traditional funeral services, a celebration of Ken’s life will be held at Unity of Birmingham on October 22, 2023 at 2:30 PM.
