December 9, 1931 - November 23, 2021
Johnnie Bea Adams, Jr., 89, of 493 Adams Trail, Keeling, VA, died on Tuesday, November 23, 2021 at Sovah Health of Danville following a sudden health problem. Mr. Adams was born on December 9, 1931 in Hanover County, VA, a son of the late Johnnie B. Adams, Sr. and the late Ora Martin Adams. He spent most of his life in Hanover near family and childhood friends. As an adult, he joined the Virginia National Guard and completed 10 years of service. He retired after 27 years as a Supply Clerk from Defense General Supply Center in Richmond, VA, and moved to Danville, VA in 1993 with his wife, the late Elsie Daniel Adams. In his retirement he enjoyed woodworking in his shop, repairing engines – even helping a neighbor with their tractors – singing in the church choir and serving as church elder at Kentuck Presbyterian Church, and visiting with neighbors, family and friends. Mr. Adams hardly ever met a stranger and would be quick to share a smile and conversation. Mr. Adams is survived by three children, Judi A. Tilley (Shawn), Dr. Jeffery A. Adams (Kerri), and Amie D. Towler (Chuck); a brother, Thomas William Adams; ten grandchildren and four great grandchildren; and a daughter-in-law, Mary Sue Daniel. He was predeceased by a son, Ron Daniel. A visitation for family and friends will be held on Friday, December 3, 2021 from 12:00 pm until 1:30 pm at the Wrenn-Yeatts Westover Chapel. This will be followed by a funeral service at 2:00 pm at the Mausoleum Chapel in Danville Memorial Gardens with Elder David Smith officiating. The family suggests in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Kentuck Presbyterian Church, 9865 Old Richmond Road, Keeling, VA 24566 and the Keeling Fire Department, P.O. Box 12, Keeling, VA 24566. Wrenn-Yeatts Westover Chapel is respectfully serving the Adams family.
