John L. Adams

John L. Adams, 54, of Moundsville, passed away on March 6, 2006, at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, W.Va. He was recently diagnosed with kidney cancer. Born in Elkins, W.Va., on Aug. 8, 1951, to Jack and Helen Adams; grandson to Kennie and Eva Adams and Frank and Ila Jane Bohon Ailstock.

John is survived by his beloved son, Thomas, a student in Phoenix, Ariz., his mother, Helen and his grandmother, Eva. He also leaves behind the very special love of his life, his earth angel, Cindy Yoho, her precious sons, Joey and Justin, whom he loved very much, and Cindy's parents, Fred and Mary Miner.

Also surviving are his brother, Kenneth Richard (Sue) Adams of Parkersburg, their daughters, Letitia (Joey) Walker, Kristen (Tony) Johnson and Jacqie Adams; his sister, Sue White and her sons, Levi and Grant; his sister, Debbie Adams of Bemis, and her daughter, Michelle (Tony) Carpenter and Rain Carpenter of Shadyside, Ohio.

John was baptized into the Christian faith in 1963, attending Graysville Methodist as a youth and presently the Harvest Baptist Church in Moundsville. He was a 1970 graduate of John Marshall High School, a retired coal miner from Consol, and a farmer at heart. He was an avid worker and supporter of John Marshall Band Parents. He couldn't do enough for his band kids. John excelled at cooking and baking and loved to feed his family and friends.

He will forever be known as Uncle HeeHee. The name was given to John by nieces Michelle and Letitia for the way he would laugh and play peek-a-boo with a twinkle in his eyes and a big smile on his face and love for all his nieces and nephews in his heart.

His spirit soaring heaven bound and his body donated to the Human Gift Registry. His wish was that many will be cured by the knowledge gathered from his gift to mankind. Known by many as "Big John." He was a gentle man, yes stern at times, but always a gentleman. A gentleman always knows when it's time to leave and he peacefully passed away.
