In Memoriam of Bobby Adams
March 22, 1948 - Nov. 16, 2022
Bobby Adams, born on March 22, 1948 - November 16, 2022, Lived a life well remembered. As Mark Twain said, "You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough." Bobby was a good friend of 30-plus years. He had me laughing from the first day I met him to the last time I spoke with him on the phone just a few days before his passing. Bobby grew up in the North Georgia Mountains, attended the University of Georgia, thus a huge Dawg fan, came back to North Georgia where he worked as an educator for 33 years.
He had a deep love and devotion to family, friends, and his community. He loved to hunt and fish, loved dogs and horses, and adored his children and grandchildren. Bobby was a natural storyteller. In 2011, Bobby contacted me and wanted to publish a collection of his stories in a book, which consisted of stories he experienced and those he grew up hearing from his mother and grandparents in the mountains. He included pictures of his late mother, father, grandfather, and grandmother. When he was editing the book, we had a healthy dose of laughter for what stories might be best left out, mostly of a political bent, as Bobby, like myself, was a lifelong Democrat.
I remember him saying that he’d probably be better off leaving this or that story out, but sure was tempted to tell it anyway. Bobby always had something to say that was not just humorous, but downright hilarious. Bobby Adams was a friend, and he will be greatly missed. The picture on the front cover of his book is one he had taken especially for the book. John Wilder, his beloved grandson, sits on his knee, with his best dog at the time watching closely.
