Robert L. "Bob" Adams, 69, Leavenworth, KS passed away Sunday, July 6, 2008 at Providence Medical Center, Kansas City, KS.

Bob was born June 25, 1939 in Leavenworth the son of Gilbert F. and Daisy (Arkebauer) Adams.

On November 20, 1960 at the First Baptist Church in Leavenworth he married Suzann Elliott.

A loving husband, devoted father and doting grandfather, Bob has been a pillar of the Leavenworth community all of his life.

For over 30 years he owned and operated Adams Standard Service, served as President of the Chamber of Commerce, was elected to the City Commission, the office of Mayor and 2 terms on the Leavenworth County Commission. He also served 23 years on the Cushing Hospital Board, 25 years with Kiwanis and over 30 years with the Fraternal Order of Eagles.

Always a farm boy at heart he loved the simple things in life; a Royal's game, gardening, bird-watching, bowling, and good conversation with good people. Most of all he loved his country music and dancing with his wife. He had as easy laugh and an easier smile and he was more than willing to share both.

He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, John G. Adams and William F. Adams.
