On November 27, 1991, Franklin Brown Adams "went a'wandering home". His courageous four-year battle with leukemia was indicative of his lifelong habit of accomplishing the impossible.

Born November 15, 1920, in Salt Lake City, Utah, the son of Alfred Franklin Adams and Sarah Ellen Brown Adams. Franklin married Annie Ila Webb August 22, 1941, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

He is preceded in death by his daughter, Saralin Anne, sister, Josephine Adams Schlattmann, grandson, Tony Faggioli.

After many years of service, Franklin retired from the U.S. Army as a lieutenant colonel. He earned his master's degree and served in the public school system as teacher and administrator for 30 years, and was recognized for his service by receiving the Freedoms Foundation Award. As a realtor, he was recognized for two years in the Million Dollar Club. His devotion to the LDS Faith led him traveling to the furthest corners of the earth on eight missions. He also served his church as bishop and other numerous leadership positions.

Franklin was a patriot, educator, missionary, husband, father, grandfather and friend. He held without wavering to the principles in which he believed. He loved people and was continually striving to serve them.
