PRINCETON, Ky. - William L. Adams passed away Sunday, December 29, 2013 at the New Haven Assisted Living where he had lived for the past year.
He was born December 27, 1916 in Trigg County, Kentucky to Hugh Clint and Icye Belle Adams. He was the oldest of five children, all of which have predeceased him. He was preceded in death by his wife Margaret; they were married for 70 years.
He was a dairy farmer for 42 years, never missing a full day of work during that time. He loved what he did and took great pride in his dairy business. Any day that he could be outside in the fields was a good day. After he retired from the daily chore of milking cows and working in the fields he took up the hobby of woodworking and handcrafted many pieces of beautiful furniture for all his children and grand-children. He made everything from cradles to quilt stands to rolling pins, each piece becoming a family treasure.
He had a beautiful voice and was the choir director at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church for many years, he also served as a deacon in the church.
He was recognized for his efforts in soil conservation, a past member of Woodman of the World, the Dairyman’s Association and was honored to be a Grand Marshal of the Black Patch Festival.
He is survived by his three children, Nina Wargel and her husband Ron of Evansville, IN; Nancy Lacey of Evansville, IN; and David and his wife Karen of Princeton, six grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.
The family wishes to especially thank his special friends and caregivers Linda Smiley and Judy Freeman for their years of loving care and friendship along with the staff at New Haven Assisted Living for their kindness and compassion.
