Obituary For Lawrence Eugene Adams

Lawrence Eugene Adams, 83, of Smithton, MO passed away Saturday, November 21, 2020, at his home. He was born on November 23, 1936, in Lookout, MO, the son of George Adams and Emily (Miller) Adams, who preceded him in death.

On May 20, 1962, in Sedalia, MO, he was united in marriage to Helen (Moon) Adams, who survives of the home.

He loved the Lord and shared his faith with anyone he came in contact with. After serving his country, he married his sweetheart and supported his family by trucking grain, hauling hay, and farming. He and his brother, Paul, cared for the Adams-Sowers Cemetery in Cooper County, MO. He held several positions at his church. Most recently being a "greeter" at First Baptist in Sedalia, MO. Even in retirement, he enjoyed helping his sons-in-law and grandchildren with their farming operations. He never worked a day in his life because he loved what he did. His motto - If you work hard at it, it will be easy. But if you work easy at it, it will be hard.

Just Think... you are here, not by chance but by God's Choosing. His Hand Formed You and made you the person you are. He compares you to no one else. You Are One of a Kind. You lack nothing that His Grace can't give you. He has allowed you to be here, at this time in history to fulfill His special purpose for this generation. ...the Lord's unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in Him. Psalms 32:10

In addition to his wife, he is survived by two daughters, Tammy Kroeger (Matt) of Clifton City, MO and Phyllis Schwartz (Brian) of Stover, MO; a brother, Paul Adams of Smithton; a sister, Mary Ann Holman (Carl) of Beaman; three grandchildren, Chelsey Kroeger of Clifton City, MO, Chloe Harris (Sean) of Florence, MO, and Ethan L.E.
