Hopkins said Adams had left a note stating he was in bad health and couldn't stand the pain anymore. He had called his brother-in-law shortly before his death asking him to come to the house. A 20 guage shotgun was found next to the body.
Burial will be at Fairlawn Cemetery under the direction of Preston-Leckie Funeral Home.
