A Message From Valerie Powers DiBenedetto

This message was recently sent from Skip's sister Valerie. Many of you may have attended school with him.

Although my brother did not graduate from high school I wanted to share this with people who may have known him:
It is with sadness that I share that my brother, George (Skip) Powers has passed away. He attended Newton North High School from 1964-1967. (corrected I originally thought it was '66) He was one of the Newton Corner guys, never letting me, his little sister, hang out where he did. He will forever be my big brother, always wanting to protect me. When we lose a sibling, we lose part of our history. My memories of our good times will be in my heart forever. He was a sweet man......the sweetness not often shining through the cloud of a life-time addiction.
