Birth: 1919
Death: Jul. 21, 2006
San Bernardino County
California, USA

Sherm Adams, 86, devoted husband, father and much loved grandfather, died unexpectedly July 21, 2006, at his residence. Born on Aug. 18, 1919, Sherm was married 63 years to his loving wife, Joni Adams, previously deceased. Sherm married Joni in 1940, and started his family. In 1944, he entered the service and became part of the 11th Airborne Division Paratroopers. After his discharge, Sherm moved his family to Bristol, Conn., where they lived until 1951, when, on hope, a wing and a prayer and a 36-foot trailer, Sherm moved his family to sunny Santa Monica. In 1957, Sherm started construction on a Richfield gas station in Hesperia, where in February of 1958, he moved his family for the last time. Sherm owned and worked the station, which later became Arco, on Seventh and Main streets for 26 years. He retired in 1984. During his 48 years in Hesperia, Sherm was deeply involved in square dancing and belonged to the Sagebrush Shufflers and The Thunderbirds of Apple Valley, among others, and also served with his wife, Joni, as presidents of the Cow County Association. Sherm's hobbies included engraving, making custom plaques and giving back to his community by driving the Meals on Wheels programs for the senior citizens. Sherm is survived by his two sons, Doug Adams of Fountain Run, Ky., and Norm Adams of Hesperia; six grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by four sisters and two brothers. Visitation will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, with services following at 2 p.m., at Desert View Funeral Home, 11478 Amargosa Road in Victorville..
