Obituary of Richard Adams

Richard A. Adams, 62, of Spring Mount, passed away Thursday, January 28, 2021, at Pottstown Hospital in Pottstown. He was the husband of Amy (Hunsberger) Adams to whom he was married for over 28 years.

Born July 29, 1958, in Pottstown, he was a son of the late John and Beulah (Gainer) Adams.

Rich was a loving husband, father, and grandfather.  He worked long hours as a chef, but always seemed to find time to support his children with their sporting events.  He loved to read almost anything and was proud that he was “full of useless information.”  He enjoyed nature and spent much time at the park.  He would go fishing, prepare a picnic lunch, and explore flowers, birds, and rocks while walking the trail.  He later became disabled but continued to do things he enjoyed when able.  Last summer, he planted a small garden in pots on the porch for the family.  He was definitely blessed with a green thumb.  He spent time with his two grandsons and had a morning routine so they could “help” him.  He always seemed to know the right things to say and do.  Whether he was offering words of wisdom, telling a joke, or lending a much needed helping hand, he always took the time out of his day to make sure you were okay and made you feel special.  He had such a big impact and made such a big difference in all of our lives.  He was so important to all of us and we are forever grateful for the time we got to spend with him and for being blessed with such a loving husband, father, and grandfather.   

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his children, Joshua Adams of Spring Mount and Cady Adams of Spring Mount; and his grandchildren, Jaxon Flanagan-Adams, and Jace Adams.
