Stanley Ray Adams

December 2, 1969 — May 29, 2023

Stanley Adams' heart took its last beat Monday, May 29 at 11:05 am. His final act of kindness was the gift of life through donating his organs and tissue.


Stanley was born December 2, 1969, to Frank and Shirley Adams, he was the "baby brother" to Pam and Steve. At the age of 14, he fell in love with the girl whose hair he would pull in the hallway at school. On August 8, 1984, at Lisa Cole's bonfire, he asked Christine to be his "girlfriend" and so their story began. Stanley graduated from Mounds High School in 1988 and went on to become a master welder, electrician, plumber, carpenter, mechanic, and whatever else anyone needed him to be. Stanley and Christine married on June 12, 1993, and went on to have three amazing children. His children, Skyler, Parker, and Chaiden were the light that sparkled in his eyes. No words can describe how proud he was to be their father. He was an amazing father and recently he took on a new role as "Poppy" to his beautiful granddaughter Olivia. He woke up thinking about her and laid down at night to dream about her. Taking her shopping was his favorite, of course, shopping was his favorite no matter who was with him.


Stanley worked hard and was a dedicated employee, working at J&G Steel for 20+ years and then moving to Kelvion for the past 6 years. When he wasn't working at Kelvion he was taking care of his cattle with his best dog Colt.

Stanley leaves behind his wife Christine, and their children Skyler, Brittany Reed, Parker, Loren Box, Chaiden, and Nick Byrd. As well as, a granddaughter Olivia, sisters Pam, Lisa Adams, Michelle Varner, Ashley Rainey, and Lisa Hall- brothers Steve, Danny Barrett, Jim Beebe, Justin Rainey, and Jason Varner. An overwhelming number of nieces and nephews whom he loved dearly.


How do you sum up a man that loved life to its fullest in just a few paragraphs...well you don't. You must allow your memories to fill the voids- the amazing laugh, infectious smile, and heartwarming advice (even if you didn't want it).


There are a couple of common themes when discussing Stanley with people or reading the stories on Facebook. And they are that he was always considered a friend or best friend and he was always either helping someone or doing something for someone. And that is exactly who he was. He would give his time selflessly to whomever he saw had a need. Even to the point of sacrificing time with his family. It was important to him that people were "taken care of", regardless of what that meant he had to do. He was the epitome of a "Jack of all trades, Master of none", except he was, indeed, the Master of all he did. He felt it was his duty to use his skills & knowledge to make the life easier of whoever was the recipient of his generosity. The combination of his generosity and his ability to put people at ease knowing he was in their corner, naturally made people consider him a true friend. The definition of a true friend is: "those who offer you support, improve your quality of life, promote self-confidence, provide honesty and unconditional love, and help you progress mentally". Stanley did all of those things and had the uncanny ability to know exactly what to do or say, in any situation, to make a person feel better.


For those of us who were blessed to be in his close circle, life will never be the same. We have lost one of the best of us. He kept us from making stupid mistakes, but when we would, he taught us how to overcome them. There will be a lot more stupid mistakes made with him gone, but the memory of him will help us to overcome everyone, and, hopefully, allow us to get closer to being just a fraction of the man he was.
