Mr Adcock left behind a legacy in the hearts of all the students that had the privilege of being in his classes. I had the chance to know Mark and Susan through band and could see how important his family was to him. He was more than a teacher, he was a leader by example. He was loved by so many and my condolences go out to his family. SHS class of '77.

The world has lost a little of its brightness. Mr. Adcock was an inspiration as a teacher and was always kind and encouraging. I hate to hear he's gone from this world. But I look forward to seeing him in Heaven one day. I'm praying for peace for his family.
