James Cecil Adams
Birth: Jul. 5, 1920
Georgia, USA
Death: May 15, 2006
North Carolina, USA

Jim served his country in the 82nd Squadron, 12th Bomb Group of the US Army Air Corps in Northern Africa. While on a mission over Italy on January 13, 1943 his B-25 Mitchell bomber was hit by flack. Jim heroically alerted the crew in the rear of the plane to bail out while under fighter attack. He was held as a prisoner of war in Stalag Luft I in Barth, Germany through May 13, 1945. He received several decorations including the Purple Heart. He spent much of his business career in sales related to the furniture business. His legacy is a legion of friends and a proud family. Although Jim endured great hardships in his youth, he lived a life free from bitterness or malice. Always ethical and honest, always optimistic, always faithful. He loved to cook, and especially enjoyed preparing the traditional Thanksgiving meal for his family. Jim was preceded by his brothers, Emory and Sidney, his sisters, Lois and Willa Jean, his mother and father Susie and Doc Adams and his "band of brothers" from the European Theater of World War II.

For James Adams - Thank you for your heroic service to our country. You certainly gave your all. My late Dad was a master mechanic, ironically, in the U.S. Army Air Corps and his favorite was the B-25. I hope you've found each other and are swapping stori...(Read more)
