ADAMS, KENNETH, Chestnut Ridge, passed away on Friday, April 15, 2016 at 101 years old.[born: Feb. 22, 1915]  He is survived by his loving wife of 77 years, Bertie Adams, his siblings, Lewis Adams, Johnny Adams, Donald Adams, Ronnie Kennedy, Faye Howard, Dixie Lavender, and Joy Dean Taylor, his children Wanda Broyles and her husband Leroy, June Sanders, Vaughn Adams, Alvie Adams and his wife Mabel, and Ronald Adams and wife Sissy, his daughter-in-law Libbie Adams, his grandchildren Jeffery Dean, Bryan Adams, Teresa Shepherd, Robert Sanders, Connie Adams, Lisa Broyles, Troy Adams, Dustin Patton, Kristy Patton, Craig Patton, Kayla Patton, and Sean Adams, 15 great grand kids, 9 great-great grandkids, and several nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents Calvin and Annie Adams, his siblings Oral Adams, Nina May Hall, Beatrice Lavender, Vola England, Grace Adams, and Willie Adams, his son Douglas Adams, his grandsons Kenny Ray Sanders, and Michael Adams. He was a member of Pleasant Green Church of the Nazarene in Chestnut Ridge. He retired from Morgan County Schools after driving a bus for several years. Chances are if you are from Chestnut Ridge and went to school in Sunbright you rode his bus. He was a hardworking man who seemed to be able to do anything. Whether it was working in the sawmill, logging, farming, making walking sticks, or teaching animals to do what seemed impossible, he did it and did it well.

He was an honest, strong, loving, and honorable man. He chose his words wisely. Whether he sat silently, offered a short phrase, or told endless stories of his past, he did so with purpose and intent. He never said too much and he never said too little. He wasn’t one for lecturing or grand expressions of emotion but his love for his family was evident. Needless to say, he impacted the lives of everyone he came in contact with.

While he will be dearly missed by his family, we are reassured by the fact that he is in the company of Jesus. (2 Corinthians 5:1)

A special thanks to the nurses and staff of Lifecare Center of Morgan County for taking such wonderful care of “Dad” during the last few years of his life. We appreciate it and know he did as well.

The family will receive friends Sunday, April 17, 2016 at Schubert Funeral Home in Wartburg from 5:00 to 7:00. Funeral service will follow at 7:00 with Bro. Frank Kirby officiating.

Graveside services will be held Monday, April 18, 2016 at 11:00 am in the High Point Cemetery in Deer Lodge, TN.  [Schubert Funeral Home]
