Jay Lynn Adams, the son of Ward and Marlene Adams, was born February 23, 1957 in SLC, Utah. He quietly returned to his Father in Heaven on September 19, 2010 at the age of 53.
Jay grew up in Granger/West Valley and graduated from Granger High School in 1975. He was a very kind and loving man with a heart as big as the sky and room in it for all. He had a very good sense of humor and there was never a dull moment with him in your life. He had a love for life and all those he met.
He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, camping, riding and working with his horses. He loved the outdoors so much that he spent over 30 years in the elements working as a skilled Brick Mason. He shared his Masonry talent with many, both on the job site and as an Instructor at Weber Basin Job Corp. He had a passion for brick work and enjoyed teaching it and talking about it at every chance he had. Most of all he loved the Lord, his family and friends. No one ever went away a stranger. Jay is a member of the LDS church and truly believes in the gospel.
Jay married Connie Walker in December 1976, later divorced. On October 2, 1982 he married Jeri Lynne Clark, she was the love of his life and he hers.
He will be missed by all who had the opportunity to meet and know him. His nieces, nephews and granddaughters love him very much as he loves them.
