Donald Adams was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and mentor to many. He went to Heaven peacefully after having a massive stroke, with his family by his side. Don loved going camping, sitting around the camp fire grilling hot dogs, and relaxing. He also enjoyed listening to gospel music, and had a wonderful singing voice. His grandchildren, who knew him as "Pappy", had many hours helping him piece puzzles together. He served in the Korean war, and was a correction officer and Chaplain for over 25 years at the Snohomish county jail and Indian Ridge. He is survived by his wife, Elaine; daughter, Debbie; grandchildren, Janelle and Morgan; daughter, Sharon; granddog, Sienna; son, Paul and his wife, Jamie; grandchildren, Sammy Johnny and Emily; son, Roman and his wife, Alysia; and grandchildren, Chase and Abby. There will be no services at Donald's request.

I miss Don already. I loved him very much. He was the best stepfather ever to all of us and a wonderful Grandpa (pappy).
