He made a huge impact on so many lives personally and professionally. The sentiments of his sons captures the man we all love: “Our fondest memories of our dad has always been of simply being a true humanitarian. He was always cheerful, always giving and always helping others regardless of age. His demeanor was always respectful to those that knew him. This is not to say that he never became demanding on behalf of good causes – he could be quite insistent. But to describe dad as ‘kind’ would be the most extreme understatement we can imagine.”
Stan Adams dedication to excellence led him to become a charter member of the Sanctuary Church in Savannah where he served as a Deacon and an Usher for many years.
Adams was affectionately known as “Uncle Stan, Brother Stan, Papa, Daddy, and simply Stan” by all who knew him. Whether deer hunting in the woods with friends, vacationing in the mountains with his family, sharing a good meal around the dinner table, singing the old church hymns, or inviting the less fortunate to the family Thanksgiving dinner, Adams loved people. Coaching baseball, gardening, football, and summers in the pool with his grandchildren were some of his hobbies. He lived a life full of kindness and generosity.
