Bob was born on October 1, 1938, in Kirksville, the son of Cyril and Vera Mae (White) Adams.  He was a hardworking man, dedicated to providing for his family. After graduating from Shelbyville High School in 1956, he worked for The Oliver Corporation in Shelbyville and later for World Color Press in Effingham.   Bob was a man of deep faith, which was the foundation of his life.

Bob was a loving husband to his wife of 64 years, Kay of Strasburg, and together they built a beautiful life and family. He was a proud father to his four children: Tammy Benton of Lovington, Bobby Adams of Effingham, Sally (Jack) Ooton of Xenia, and David Adams of Strasburg. Bob's love extended to his eight grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
