Barb, Wendy, & Jill,
Your dad was a very special part of my Fall Ridge Way years. My fondest memory is him judging many Saturday Night Barbie Fashion Shows with a smile on his face. God Bless Him! Cherish the memories and celebrate his life. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you!

Barbara, Wendy, Jill, we shared your early years as friends. Barbara we went on our second date to your five year old birthday party, Wendy Fred was there when you were born, Jill you were conceived the weekend of our wedding. Two of you are our godchildren. Your Dad loved you so much. He could be a Dad and a playmate at the same time. He was a comedian at heart. He among so many spent so many long hours at work in the race for space and cherished every hour spent with you three. We remember him in his Santa suit at Christmas, coming to dinner in a tie and Bermuda shorts (no shirt)as the worst Monopoly player, the borrower of garden tools, good neighbor and friend. He loved you with allof his heart. Cherish his memory forever,celebrate his life forever and as the astronauts he helped launch at Cape Canaveral "slip the surly bonds of Earth and reach for the heavens" God Bless His Soul. May He Rest in Peace..Good Bye Old Friend. We will miss you forever!

I will always remember John's smiles and warm snuggles. His fun-loving nature, spread smiles abound. His children and grandchildren lit him up like a lantern.

My heart is with you Wendy, Allison, Emily, Barbara, Jeff, Melanie, Michael, Steve, Jill, John, and Scott.

We made a donation to the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, created by the astronauts of Mercury 7; a mission John worked for. In Loving Memory, for John Peter Adams, from Ms. Teresa Easley, Mr. John A. Walker and family, Ms. Teri and Benjamin Barnette, and Mrs. Lee Ann Walker-Illig and family.

He Is Healed.

For the next generation; may John's passion for space carry-on.
