Not sure what to say?

A tresured priest who reflected the face of Christ.

Dating for 9 years in the counsel of Father Adams ! He finally marrried
us in 1974. What a powerful presence he has had on us through the
years, even after our relocation to Washington. This obituary will be
cherished in memory in with the photos of him at our wedding, a personable and faithful servant.

Rest in peace Father Adams.

Well I just wanted to say that all five of us Flores kids went to Saint Michael's School and church and we all received our sacraments there all under the watchful and loving eye of Father Adams. He was so special to us and my folks were very close to him. He joined our family for dinner several times back in the day and it was always a treat when we knew he coming to the house. He and my dad worked closely together on the Parish Council and my dad has great respect and love for him. Some...

We knew Fr. Adams for a number of years. Our children had attended St. Michael's School. He was a fine man who was faithful to our beloved church in Christ. Sorry I wasn't at his funeral services, but Stella and I will continue to pray for him...By the way, he baptized three of our children!

When Father Adams greeted my siblings and me at the front of the church it was often accompanied by a punch in the arm or a painfully strong hand squeeze. Seriously, who really gets to kick off Catholic mass laughing? Not sure why this made me feel welcome and loved, but it did. His sermons were also uniquely engaging, so as kids, we could actually enjoy the experience once we were there. He was a great man!

I was saddened to hear the passing of Monsignor Adams. I attended Mass when visiting from Folsom. I looked forward to hearing Msgr Adams give Mass. He had a great sense of humor and a very caring heart. He will be truely missed.
May he rest in peace. God Bless.

The greatest gift in my life was to know Father Adams at St. Michaels. He was always there for everyone. Even though he was retired he was there for my mother-in-laws funeral. He would love to punch you in the arm as you were leaving church. I think I still have the bruises to prove it. Even after moving to Oregon in 2003 I was able to keep some brief contact with him by mail. He will be greatly missed.

I have so many memories of Monsignor Adams dating back to 1964 when my parents and I moved to Livermore. His dedication to the church and the parish, his trademark understated wit, and as Bishop Cummins so eloquently stated today, his serenity are but a few.

I spent twelve years in St. Michael's CCD. Monsignor was a frequent visitor to our classes and learned the names of each and every student. Once I went away to college and later moved to San Francisco, he always welcomed me...
