October 6, 1930 – May 4, 2018
CW Adcock, 87, of Longview, TX passed away on May 4, 2018 surrounded by his loving family. CW was born October 6, 1930 in Huffines, TX to Henry Albert Adcock and Maggie Lee Sullivan Adcock. He married the love of his life, Pearl Booth, on Sept. 22, 1949 in Houston. CW was known for his quick wit and sense of humor. He would often poke fun of himself when asked what it was that CW stood for, he would find something appropriate for the conversation going on at the time, or simply reply country and western. CW loved spending time with his girls. He even convinced Pearlie that they needed a lake house so that he could spend more time with them, which he did, teaching them how to fish, playing his guitar and singing songs with the girls, and one of life's most valuable lessons, spending quality time with the family. CW did work a lot, his job as a sales rep with Timco Sweepers meant a lot of time on the road for CW. He was proud of what he did, and took his job seriously. He was very proud of the fact that he was the first sales rep to convince the State of Texas that they needed to purchase TIMCO sweepers, and landed a contract for nine of them. CW was able to retire from TIMCO in 1996 after over 20 years of service to them, but also was called on from time to time after retiring for consulting work. CW is survived by his wife of 67 years, Pearlie Adcock of Longview; daughters: #1 Barbara Clark and her husband Chuck of Longview, #2 Brenda Kelley of Winona, #3 Dale Shumaker of Kilgore, #4 Carolyn Sessa of White Oak, #5 Marilyn Prince and her husband Doug of Longview; grandchildren: Kevin Clark and his wife Chryl of East Mountain, Mark Clark and his wife Christi of East Mountain, Heather Tison and her husband Jason of Gladewater, Amber Phillips and her husband Dustin of Longview, Robert Page and his wife Cathy of Winona, Jason Till, David Crowder of Florida, Dillon Sessa of East Mountain, Stachia Schultz and her husband Hunter of Marshall, George Kennedy III of Longview, Derick Kennedy of Longview; 15 great grandchildren; one great great grandchild; brother: Charles Adcock of Shreveport; nephew: Darrell Adcock and his wife Melissa of Shreveport; niece: Geri Siglar and her husband Billy of East Mountain, as well as a number of extended family members. He is preceded in death by his parents; two sisters: Bobby Burk and Geneva Wilson; and brother: Malcolm Adcock.
