They raised 2 sons, Bruce and Gregg Adams, and one daughter, Connie (Andy) Noteboom all living in the Battle Creek area. Jeanette passed away in 1986 and he later married E. Arlene Arnetz, who had 4 grown children. When he retired from the maintenance staff at Gull Lake Bible Conference, he and Arlene travelled as volunteers with Sowers International, and then later settled at Bibleville in Alamo, Texas.

David Blackmore, of Grand Rapids, Michigan, will officiate and the burial will be at Roof Cemetery, in Charleston Township.
