Donald J. "Don" Adams, 84, died unexpectedly on March 18, 2009, at his Merrimack NH home after a period of failing health. He was born March 16, 1925, in Exeter NH, son of the late William J. and Katherine (Daley) Adams. Don lived most of his life in Exeter. He was a graduate of Exeter High School, Class of 1943, and immediately enlisted in the United States Army to serve in World War II. He fought at the Battle of the Bulge and was honorably discharged in 1946.

In 1950, he married Patricia LaBonte, and together they enjoyed many hobbies such as traveling and dancing at many local area ball rooms. Independently, Don enjoyed golfing, mostly at Rockingham Country Club in Newmarket NH, and fishing. Mr. Adams worked for many years at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. Don also volunteered much of his time to the Salvation Army in Portsmouth. As a communicant of St. Michael Church in Exeter, he donated time at the Michael House. He was a member of the American Legion Post #32 and Veteran of Foreign Wars #2181 Fuller Covey Post, both of Exeter.

Don was predeceased by his five brothers.
