Edwin “Roger” Adams, born March 18, 1943 to Harvey and Eula Adams, went home to be with the Lord on April 28, 2020. He will always be remembered for his sense of humor and love for his family.
He enjoyed travel, photography, playing chess, and family gatherings.
From the time he was very young, he enjoyed being an active member of his church, and in recent years was a dedicated helper in the children’s ministry. Roger spent many years participating in the activities at the St. Louis Activity Center, and enjoyed many close friendships there. He worked hard as a janitor for area hospitals, banks, and schools. Later in life, he was proud of earning his GED and challenging himself by competing in the Go! St. Louis Mature Mile Marathon.
He was preceded in death by his parents, two sisters, Maureen and Eileen, and one brother, Allen. He is survived by one brother, Vernon, two sisters-in-law, Joyce and Diane, and six nephews, Mike(late Laura) Adams, Phil(Sandy) Adams, Tom(Cherie) Adams, Dan(Tina) Adams, Gary(Michelle) Adams, Matthew(Michelle) Adams, and one niece, Denise(Ernie) Brockman, as well as numerous great-nephews and great-nieces, all of whom he loved very much.
A memorial service to honor his life will be held at a later date.
