Guy Adams, one of Franklin Township's most prominent and industrious farmers passed away Wednesday morning, May 9th, 1923 at the old Adam's homestead after an illness covering a period of several months. In the death of Mr. Adams this vicinity has lost a good citizen. He was universally liked by all who knew him. In his business dealings with his fellow men, Guy could always be depended upon as being fair and honest. He loved and cherished the friendship of those whom he trusted. He was a loving husband and a kind father and dutiful son. From the family circle has passed one whose place can never be filled on this earth. Mr. Adams has suffered intense pain during his illness, but with all he never complained, he suffered but through that suffering could be noticed a smile of hope, he know that some day he would again meet his loved ones, where suffering no longer dwelt.
