Wythe County

Garry Odell "Rocky" Adams, 51, of Wytheville died Thursday, Aug. 18, 2011, at his home following a courageous battle with brain cancer.

Funeral service will be held Saturday, Aug. 20, at 7 p.m. at the Barnett Funeral Chapel with Lewis Shelton officiating. Interment will be Sunday, Aug. 21, at 2 p.m. in the Cornett Cemetery at Comers Rock. The family will receive friends Saturday, Aug. 20, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the funeral home.

He taught his family and friends so much by accepting and dealing with his significant disabilities stemming from injuries he suffered from a car accident at a parade as a child.

He left behind a loving family that learned so much from him. Even though he was never able to speak after the accident, he communicated very well. He taught everyone that came to know him how to laugh, love and overcome the worst of what life dishes out with humility and humor. He will be missed greatly by all who knew and loved him.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Verna Mae Cornett Adams of Marion.

Survivors include his father, William C. Adams of Ashland; a brother and sister-in-law, Mike and Elizabeth Adams of Richmond; a sister and niece, Odette Adams Hoffman and Ashley Hoffman, both of Chilhowie; a nephew and his wife, Brian and Kay Blevins, and their son, Austin Blevins, all of Marion; a nephew, Jeffrey Forbes of Marion; two nieces, Tracy Forbes Carr of Marion, and Michelle Forbes Shelton and her husband, Randy, of the home; great-niece, Savannah Ashlin of the home; great-nephew, Chance Shelton of the home; very special friend, Barbara Parks; and countless other loving friends.

Online condolences may be made to the family at Barnett Funeral Home in Wytheville is in charge of the arrangements.
