Russell William Adams, born Sept. 4, 1943, went home to our heavenly father Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2011. His passing from his earthly home to heaven was at 6:32 a.m. at the University of Kentucky Hospital. This was after a very long illness.

He was born in Eubank to the late James Finley and Anna West Adams of Eubank. He was a dedicated Christian man, a loving husband and very devoted father. He was a kind and likable man with a wonderful outlook on life. His one last wish was that those who have not yet been saved and come to know the Lord would do so. A special scripture from the King James Bible states in Isaiah 55, verse 12, “For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forward with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.” He was loved by all and will be sadly missed by those that had the privilege of personally knowing him. He proudly served the United States in the 3rd Recon, 4th Cavalry unit, attached to the 25th Tropic Lightning Infantry division of the United States Army.

He retired as the director of security on July 31, 2000, from the Kentucky State Psychiatric Center (K.C.P.C.) in Lagrange, Ky., after 33 years of service with the department of corrections and the department of human resources.

He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 32 years, Roberta Auxier Adams; two sons, William Benjamin Adams of Seattle, Wash., and Russell Andrew Adams of Science Hill, Ky.; and three daughters, Deann (and Brian) Davis of Seattle, Wash., and Melissa (and Jeff) Spears and Susan Mofield–Loveless-Shadoan (and David) Colyer, both of Science Hill, Ky. He is survived by a brother-in-law, Benjamin Harrison (and Debbie) Auxier of Fountain Green, Utah; a brother-in-law, George Auxier of Stanford, Ky.; a mother-in-law, Margaret Edmonds Auxier of Stanford, Ky.; a very special uncle and aunt, John and Marianne (Auxier) Kirby of Danville, Ky.; and his siblings: Mary Gilland of Cincinnati, Ohio, Allene Fetter of Goshen, Ohio, Brenda Adams of Frankfort, Ky., Oscar Adams of Burnside, Ky., and Leslie Adams and his girlfriend Rhonda Stevens of Woodstock, Ky.; eight grandchildren: Ariel and Brandon Davis of Seattle, Wash., Rhubin and Curtis Spears, Amanda and Andrew Adams, Tyler Loveless and Sidney Shadoan of Science Hill, Ky., in addition to many special nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews; and a sister-in-law, Kathleen Adams of Woodstock, Ky.

He was preceded in death by seven brothers: Carl, James (Jamup), Edison (Honey), Elbert, Hartford, Norman and Lester; one sister Joyace Rose; his father-in-law Benjamin Harrison Auxier of Danville, Ky.; and sister-in-laws Ruth Adams and Lucille Adams.

His memorial service will be Sunday, Sept. 11, at 9:30 a.m. in the sanctuary at the Mintonville United Methodist Church in Mintonville, Ky. Pastor David Green will be performing the service.

Somerset Undertaking & Crematory is in charge of arrangements.

WELL, PULL MY TEETH! Dr. Timothy Michael Huckabee & staff wear Huckabee Dental’s own brand of dental scrubs in Southlake, TX. Dr. Tim is a 4th great-grandson of Rev. Joseph Martin James & Rhoda May, and a 3rd great-grandson of Cyrenius Wait James & Amanda Hall. That’s how his James genes from Pulaski Co KY took root in TX. Dr. Tim’s grandmother is Anna Ruth James-Wingo. With her degree in journalism, Anna later studied at Cambridge University in England. Back home, she was an officer in the Parent Teachers Association, a charter member of the Wills Point Historical Society, special correspondent to the Dallas Morning News, and was chosen Woman of the Year by the Rotary Anns in 1976. The Wills Point High School named the Wingo Library in honor of her and her husband David Stimson Wingo in 1998. Anna wrote books for her grandchildren and a legacy of memory stories for the James family titled “Roots and Wings”. Dr. Tim is also a 3rd cousin of Frank & Jesse James. When requesting services, be sure to ask him for "the outlaw discount." See MoreSee Less

JESSE JAMES & JIM YOUNGER? Stray Leaves responded to this submission, saying, "Following the recent 6-year fiasco of a tintype image and its claims, wanna-be images keep on coming our way, as you surmise. They add to the hundreds already on file with the James Preservation Trust. While you may see ‘a passing resemblance,’ our experience takes us way past any such consideration. However, old tintypes are always fun to see. Thank you. See MoreSee Less
