Gregory Stewart Adams, 57, of Winston-Salem, passed away Thursday at the Palliative Care Unit of Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. He was born in Winston-Salem to the late Dr. Harley Stewart Adams Jr. and Reba Leona Vinson.

As a young child, he enjoyed learning at the Graylyn Center for children with disabilities. At age 8 he moved to Murdoch Center for the mentally handicapped in Butner, NC. At age 40 he returned to Winston-Salem to live at Independence Group Home for more than 13 years. After that, he resided at Danby House at Homestead Hills Assisted Living until a recent move to Grace Healthcare.

Greg was a jolly fellow and made friends easily. He is known by all as a kind and generous soul. He had the amazing ability to adapt to new situations, even in his later years with several additional disabilities. He was an adventurous soul. He loved to dance, and was a great sports fan. He showed strength and courage when faced with numerous physical and mental challenges. He inspired us by his grace. Above all, Greg loved his friends and family.

He is forever a beloved brother to his sisters, Rebecca "Becky" Adams of Boulder, CO, Ginger (Gene) Grimaldi of Clemmons, NC, and Susan (Richard) Mead of Emigrant, MT; niece, Genevieve Grimaldi and her son Jaden of Winston-Salem; nephew, Mark Miller of Boulder, CO.

A funeral service was held at Vogler & Sons Funeral Home, Reynolda Road Chapel. Burial at Forsyth Memorial Park followed.
