Sandy and family. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I enjoyed visiting with John when he stopped in the office. Sometimes he would call just to tell me a joke. He always made my day. John was one of a kind.

To Sandy and all of the Adams family I am very sorry for your loss. I will remember that John had a sense of humor was quick-witted and fun to be around. I have many great memories from the many years I knew him both in leisure and at work. Sandy I am thinking of you and your family at this difficult time and hope that your good memories make this sad time easier to bear.

We wish to express our condolences to Sandy and the family. I was fortunate enough to have a 40 year career as a surveyor with the D.O.T. but luckily many of those days were spent on the road with John. Traveling statewide allowed us to be coworkers but also friends and advisers to each other with work and everyday life. I couldn't have shared my time with anyone more original, authentic and caring. Remember that grief never asks you to let go of love. We'll miss you Johnny

I was saddened to learn about this. Condolences to the Adams family. Be well. I consider John one of my mentors as a surveyor. He taught me a lot about using common sense and getting the job done. He always had a trick or two up his sleeve for unusual situations. We always had a good time at the golf course too.
