Chester A. Adams was born in Dallas, Texas on March 3, 1922. He was raised and
grew up in Oak Cliff and graduated from Sunset High School. Not long after
graduation Chester joined the Army Air Corps, married his high school
sweetheart, Bebi Douglass, and deployed to the European Theater. There Chester
flew 33 combat missions as a flight engineer and gunner on a B17 crew.
He was preceded in death by his wife of 67 years, Bebi Douglass Adams, and his
parents Chester and Mary Ellen Adams. He is survived by his sons, Douglass Adams
and wife Treva, John Adams , and Kenneth Rives and wife Malinda. He is also
survived by his sister-in-law Judy Meisch and husband Edward; grandchildren
Tiffany and Derrek; and great grandchildren Ethan, Molly and Morgan as well as
numerous friends and relatives.
Following World War II, Chester became employed in the manufacturing industry as
a sales representative. Over time he purchased F. C. Gaines Sales Corporation,
which eventually became Clampette, Inc. The company has operated successfully
for many years. He became a member of Wesley Methodist Church many years ago,
and has been an active and contributing participant to it and its successor,
Elmwood United Methodist Church until his death.
He and Bebi were long time supporters of Charlton Methodist Hospital and the
entire Methodist Hospital system. Chester epitomized the concept of the Greatest
Generation in every aspect of his life. His many friends and family members will
remember him as a gentleman who conducted all his personal and business affairs
in a distinguished manner. All who knew him, considered him a kind and generous
man, above all else.
