If ever there was a man that valued others more than himself it was Jerry Adams. His heart was huge, always dropping whatever he was doing to help others, sacrificing his own for the benefit of others.

Jerry has left us to be with his beloved wife Sharon and his son Nathan, both who preceded him in going to be with the Lord. His faith was enormous, and he so longed to be reunited with the love of his life.

Family was the totality of his values, he supported all in whatever endeavor they pursued, caught them when they fell, comforted them when they were discouraged, and cheered them on to success. This was evident in everything he did, most notably the last year of his life here on earth. He diligently worked to get bikes for his son Rodney and his daughter La Vonne, not because there were new toys for them, but because it made him happy to see them enjoy this sport as brother and sister.

Jerry loved much of life, and savored new experiences. As the family travel guide, he loved to do road trips and cruises, packing adventure into every mile of the trip, always seeking to do things together as a family. His love of people transformed many other lives as well, with his role as Junior High School United Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF) teacher with Sharon, and his role as chief of security with the Youth Authority. He constantly sought to better their lives through activities that built them up and he treated them as if they were his own.

One of his greatest joys the past years were his dogs, Gucci, Princess and Puff. He hated to leave them when he went on trips, and loved to be with them on walks. They were like small children to him.

Jerry will be missed by many, all of whom he touched their lives. He is survived by those who loved him most, his family: His children La Vonne and Rod; his grandchildren: Amy, Brad, Scott, and Shawn. We all sorrow at his departure from us here, but know that his joy is complete in being reunited with the love of his life, Sharon.

In Lieu of flowers, please make contributions to the American Diabetes Association.
