Jim and Betty were the first couple to befriend us upon coming to St. Louis about 65 years ago to join Monsanto Organic Research. Since 1946 we have been connected, socially, at work, Indian Guides, several other organizations. Old friends are like old shoes they alway fit well. Jim was an older Chemical Engineer then Dean by about four months. He always "fit well". Why do we always wait too long to tell old friends our feelings for them. We share your loss. Dean and Gen Robinson, Webster Groves
What a wonderful brilliant man. He had such a huge heart. The world could truly use more men like him. I know this is a huge loss to you all. Love you guys.
I would like to express my sincerest sympathy to the entire family of Jim Adams. I worked with Jim and for him during my career at Monsanto. He was one of the best managers I ever worked for; a good coach and mentor even after he retired. I will always remember his kindness and generousity.
The world has lost a wonderful person.
Jim was my neighbor, fellow church member and Boy Scout troop leader. He gave so unselfishly to troop 657. I think he was present on every hike, camping trip and weeklong summer camp during my years in the troop. He taught us about nature, survival skills in the wilderness, and helped us with probably the most difficult task of all; learning to function as team of adolescent boys. Jim, you are missed.
Our Deepest Sympathy Tom & Anna and family. Marty remembers him as being such a kind and understanding man. Love and prayers to you and yours as you mourn your loss,
