Marvin Glenn Adams, Sr.
(25 July 1925 - 07 Feb 2014)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
 
We have another sad edition of the NNHS Newsletter today.     Bill Adams, father of  Dianne Adams Puckette ('65) of VA, Marvin Adams, and Mark Adams, and father-in-law of Larry Puckette ('63) of VA, passed away in Newport News on Friday, February 07, 2014 at the age of 88.


From the Daily Press - 02/09/14:

                 Marvin Glenn Adams, Sr.
 
      NEWPORT NEWS - "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith." 2 Timothy 4:7

Marvin Glenn ("Bill") Adams, 88, passed away at the home he loved on February 7, 2014, surrounded by his family.

He was born in Norlina, North Carolina, on July 25, 1925. He was one of twelve children born to George and Bettie Adams. His early years were spent working on the farm with his father and siblings, which led to his great love of gardening for many years. He enjoyed watching his bountiful garden thrive and loved even more sharing it with his family and friends.

In 1944, he moved to Newport News. He retired after 37 years of Government service, primarily at Fort Eustis, Virginia.

Left to treasure his memory are his devoted wife of 66 years, Arnette Howell Adams; their children, Dianne Puckette (Larry), Marvin Adams, Jr., and Mark Adams; and his grandchildren, Jeff Puckette, Jennifer Turnage (Michael) and Caleb Adams. He was a great-grandfather to Hunter and Hannah Turnage.

 
Bill Adams
 
 
He was a member of Riverside Baptist Church for 64 years and a Deacon Emeritus there. He was dedicated to the Lord, his family, and his church all of his life. He never met a stranger and was a friend to all.

Siblings include Hazel Toler, Ann Harris, Clifton Adams (Joyce), Dorothy Paynter, and Louise Harmon.

Preceding him in death were siblings Rachel King, L.J. Adams, Charles Eugene Adams, Robert Adams, and George Adams.

Visitation will be at Peninsula Funeral Home on Monday, February 10, 2014 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at Riverside Baptist Church, 7409 River Road, Newport News, at 10:00 a.m. on February 11, 2014. Burial will take place at Peninsula Memorial Park.

Will always miss the HUGS your father use to give on Sunday morning at church. What a special man he was. Heaven is a better place with his presence. May you have the peace only the Lord can give.

There are no words to describe Marvin Adams, Sr. He was a man of God who lived his life with faith, charity, compassion and humility. He will be missed by all who had the privilege to meet him, most of all by his loving family. He will be missed; rest in peace, Marvin Adams, Sr., you deserve it.

When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder

Lyrics and Music by James Milton Black (19 Aug 1856 - 21 Dec 1938), 1893


1. When the trumpet of the Lord shall sound and time shall be no more
And the morning breaks eternal, bright and fair
When the saved of earth shall gather over on the other shore
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there!

2. On that bright and cloudless morning when the dead in Christ shall rise
And the glory of His resurrection share
When His chosen ones shall gather to their home beyond the skies
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there!

3. Let us labor for the Master from the dawn till setting sun,
Let us talk of all His wondrous love and care;
Then when all of life is over, and our work on earth is done
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there!

Chorus:
When the roll, is called up yonder,
When the roll, is called up yonder,
When the roll, is called up yonder
When the roll is called up yonder I'll be there!
