DICK J. ADAMS, age 100 of Sidney, passed away Thursday, September 17, 2020 at 11:20 AM at Ohio Living Dorothy Love. He was born on April 27, 1920 in Sidney, Ohio, the son of the late Clyde and Ada (Johnson) Adams. On July 14, 1938 he married Barbara (Enders) who preceded him in death November 14, 2014.
Dick is survived by one son, Dr. Richard N. (Sandy) Adams of Troy, three grandchildren, Richard N. Adams II of Florida, R. Christian Adams of St. Petersburg, FL, and Julie M. Adams of Silverton, OR, and three great-grandchildren, Zoe Adberg, Nolan Adberg, and Aaron Adams. He was preceded in death by two brothers, Don and Robert Adams, and two sisters, Phyllis Piper, and Mary Jo Pulfer.
Mr. Adams served as a US Navy WWII veteran. He was a co-owner/operator of the family dairy farm, along with his wife, Barbara, in the Pemberton area.
Dick was a huge supporter of the Shelby County Fair. He enjoyed going every year, and took pride in being the oldest attendee. He was an avid follower of the Cincinnati Reds, and the Ohio State Buckeyes football and basketball teams. He was also very supportive in assisting Barbara with her genealogy research throughout the years.
Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, a Private Graveside Service will be held at Cedar Point Cemetery in Pasco with Rev. Jane Madden officiating and a Memorial Service to honor Dicks life will be held at Dorothy Love Amos Chapel at a later date, when it becomes available. Arrangements are in the care of Cromes-Edwards Funeral Home.
