Daniel Lee Adams, 65, of Memphis, TN, passed away August 7, 2017 after a short illness at Methodist LeBonheur Germantown Hospital. Dan was a member of Hope Presbyterian Church. He was preceded in death by his parents, Paul and Clarice Adams, and his brothers, Robert Adams of Memphis and Phil Adams of Oklahoma. He is survived by his daughter, Julie Adams Pruitt, and his grandson, Tyler Pruitt, of Olive Branch, his brothers, Wayne Adams and Jim Adams of Connecticut, and sister, Debbie Adams Frazier of Memphis, as well as his dear companion, Linda Oltmann, of Heber Springs, Arkansas.

Danny was an avid outdoorsman who was passionate about fishing and hunting and the comradery of his many friends who shared those times with him. He was a charter member and 1979 President of Memphis Bass Club, an original organizer of the St. Jude Bass Classic, a founding member of several clubs, including Green Head Farms Hunting Club, the OFW Club at Fat Possum Hollow in Heber Springs, AR, and the Boss Pit BBQ team. They have competed in the Memphis in May BBQ contest for over 30 years, as well as many other contests around the mid-south, winning the World Championship title in the shoulder division in 1989.

Danny loved people and was loved by many who always enjoyed his presence, and his humor and wit, and his many entertaining stories. It was not unusual to be with Danny in some obscure out-of-town place and run into someone that knew him. Many people will remember Danny by the "smile in his eyes" that exhibited his love and enjoyment of life, one of the many things that drew people to him. Danny had multiple successful careers in sales, including years in marine sales, information technology, and his most recent as Marketing Representative for Tupelo Neurology.

Visitation will be Friday, August 11, from 6:30-9:00 at Memorial Park Funeral Home and the funeral will be Saturday at 2 p.m. at Hope Church Chapel on Walnut Grove. Memorials may be sent to .
