One of the original EPBB Founding Partners, Gordon Powell, passed away on Saturday, June 18th in Portland, Oregon. Gordon joined Warren Elliott at the firm of Elliott & Associates in the 1950’s. Later in 1968 they were joined by Bill Baden and Neil Baker to form what is now Elliott, Powell, Baden & Baker. Gordon is survived by his wife of 67 years, Colleen Powell; daughters Pamela Sutherland, Paige Powell, Robin Powell and Heidi Powell as well as many grandchildren. Gordon was a graduate of Jefferson High School and Oregon State University. He served four years in the US Army during World War II in the China Burma theatre of operations. Gordon was a passionate golfer and member of Portland Golf Club. He retired in 1984 and moved to Gearhart where he and Colleen enjoyed walking on the beach and watching the sunsets. He will be missed by everyone at EPB&B.  No service will be held, however, remembrances may be made to the Clatsop County Animal Shelter, Pixie Project or Father Nick Transportation Fund at Our Lady of Victory Church in Seaside, Oregon.
