John R. ‘Quincy’ Adams
John R. “Quincy” Adams was born Oct. 26, 1930, in Floresville, Texas, and embraced God on Sunday, June 22, 2014, at the age of 83.
He grew up in Flores-ville, but lived most of his life in and around San Antonio. John was a wonderful and loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend. He never knew a stranger, and would happily share whatever he had with someone in need. “Big John” always had a smile on his face and a joyful greeting for whoever he met. He was an immediate friend to everyone. He will be profoundly missed by all who knew him, but never forgotten. John touched everyone with his kind heart and loving spirit. He was happiest when sharing time with others. John had a gift for problem-solving, especially in the mechanical and electrical areas. He completed many building projects without assistance using whatever materials he could find. John worked for Southwestern Bell Telephone Company for 35 years, followed by almost 30 years of traveling with RV clubs all around North America with his beloved Janette. May he rest in God’s loving arms, said his family.
John is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Janette; brothers Doyle Adams and wife Pauline and Orval Adams; sister Barbara Ann Pawlik and husband Wilbert; sons Gerald Adams, Tommy Adams and wife Becky, and Larry Adams and wife Darlene; eight grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held Sunday, July 13, at 2 p.m. in the La Vernia United Methodist Church in La Vernia.
A short reception will follow in the La Vernia United Methodist Church Family Life Building.
Memorials may be made in his honor to La Vernia United Methodist Church Foundation Fund.
