My condolences to Mr. Bill Adams family.
I went to work for him in 1954 as an usher at the Madison Theater thru 1956. As a Kid I found him to be very friendly, personable, and understanding. Over the years my wife and I have enjoyed his books about Peoria. He will be remembered by many and missed by more. more.

My parents, Stuart and Peggy Sheehan, were such good friends of your parents. We always enjoyed spending time with your parents and were so sad when we learned of your Dad's passing. It was then that we learned of your mom's passing. What a year of loss for all of you. We can only hope that the four of them are together again. Maybe they are enjoying a wonderful game of bridge - and everyone is winning!
Our prayers are with you during this difficult time of loss.
Kevin, Carol, and Marian (Sheehan)

Dear Adams Family, I was the bookkeeper for your dad's Yester Days book series. When I first started he had more faith in me than I did. I set up the program and took care to make sure everything was accounted properly for him. He was so kind. He would always stop at my desk at the Journal Star and visit with me. We shared many stories. I could listen to him talk history for hours. He was a true gentleman. And yes he was devoted to your Mother. She was also very kind to me. After we both had retired I kept in touch with them just because they were such nice folks. To my surprise when my brother was put in the nursing home I saw your dad was also there. It was the week after your Mother passed away. He was so sad. He asked me to bring him a copy of her obit, which I did. I also took him a set of his books so he might enjoy looking at them. I don't know if he ever did. I saw him fail through the weeks I would come daily to see my brother. After my brother died, I came again to visit him, but he didn't seem to respond to me, so I left him in peace, however, I never stopped praying for him. Please know that you have my deepest sympathy and he and your Mother both had my deepest respect. Also,know that God restores us to our best selves when we join him. Your dad is probably researching heaven to write a book! God bless you all at this very sad time. Their friend, Carol E. Otten

I love you grandpa. Sometimes I wish I got to know you better while you were here. Same for grandma. You really are someone I look up to. It just really isn't fair. But I know you and grandma are together again, and that goes beyond my selfishness and makes me a happy grandson. Thank you for everything.

Bill Adams was both a gentleman and a gentle man. It was an honor to enter my broadcast career at WEEK at the time he was at the helm, and when I eventually held the same position there, I came to appreciate how his firm but deft touch had helped shape the station. Later, I also enjoyed reading his reflective writings, even from afar. He will indeed be missed by his friend, family and all of Central Illinois...but lived a full and interesting life as one of broadcasting's true pioneers.
