TREMONTON – Reed C. Adams passed away Friday, March 26, 2010. He had successfully battled cancer three different times, but succumbed after a courageous, but short, battle with lung cancer. Reed was born Oct. 3, 1933, in Thatcher.
He was the eighth of nine children born to Dennis Earl Adams and Rosa Christiansen. He married his high school sweetheart, Verlyn Summers, on Oct. 1, 1953, in the Logan LDS Temple. They were married for fifty-six years and together raised three sons, a grand-daughter and a great-granddaughter.
Reed was a High Priest in the LDS church and was currently serving in the Sunday School Presidency at the Bear River Tremonton Care Center. He loved all sports and his motto was always play to win or don't play! Cackle will be remembered for his love of fast pitch softball in which he was a tremendous pitcher for many years, his love of golf, and his sense of humor.
He cherished his many friends he made playing the sports he loved. He was also an avid outdoorsman. Reed and his sons spent many hours hunting, fishing and fly tying together.
Reed loved all his sons. Zachary, who came as a surprise in Reed's later years, blessed his life with companionship, joy and comfort. Zach and his mother were at Reed's side when he passed.
Reed was a veteran of the Korean War. He loved the open road as a truck driver, and retired after working thirty-two years from Thiokol Chemical Corporation. During his retirement he found great joy at Murdock Chevrolet transporting automobiles and building great friendships with the men he worked with. He also loved cheering for the Bear River and Box Elder Girls softball teams.
His legacy will be carried on by his wife Verlyn, his sons; Dennis Reed Adams, Rickie George (Cindy) Adams, Zachary Lynn (Chelsie) Adams, seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his brothers; Dean and Grant, and sisters; Florence and Juanita. He was preceded in death by his parents and four siblings.
At Reed's request there will be no public viewing. Funeral Services were held Tuesday, March 30, at the Tremonton Utah Stake Center, 660 N. 300 E., Tremonton. Interment was held at Valley View (Bothwell) Cemetery.
