Gospel preacher. Cecil C. Adams was born October 19, 1889, about five miles from the present town of Pateros, Wash. He was a graduate of the Wenatchee High School, obeyed the gospel early in life, and remained a constant supporter and student of the principles as taught by our Savior. In 1918 he enlisted in the Thirteenth Division for service in the World War. On January 27, 1921, he was married to Miss Frances Fulton of Wenatchee, Wash. One daughter, Jean Elizabeth, was born to this union, who, too, remembered her Creator in the days of her youth. Brother Cecil died on the steps of the Deaconess Hospital after being rushed there for medical treatment for injuries received while pulling stumps on his orchard tract near Pateros. His body was returned to Pateros on May 7, and funeral services were held in the High School Gymnasium. J. C. Bunn spoke comforting words to the brothers, sisters, aged mother, and the wife and daughter. All of us were comforted when we remembered the faith and devotion of Cecil. Several hundred people had come from far and near to pay their last respects to this highly respected and beloved man. There was a profusion of flowers. A United States flag hung from a staff to the speaker's right, testifying to Cecil's loyalty to his country, Brother Bunn reminded all that "precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints." Brother Cecil has been earnestly and intelligently preaching the gospel for several years. He was well informed in the Scriptures, and was one of us and made our problems his problems. Many in the large audience had been united in marriage by this man. Many had been comforted by words spoken by him at funerals. Very plainly did every face indicate that a friend was dead. The church in Pateros suffered a loss that cannot be filled, and many communities in this section recognize their loss. But our loss is his gain. "Blessed are they who die in the Lord."-His Friend and Brother, D. F. Nickell. Gospel Advocate, June 29, 1933, 623.
His father was G. M. Adams and mother was Anna Paslay. At age of death, he was 43 years, 6 months, and 15 days.
