Warren Adams, 66, passed away early Monday morning after a protracted battle with cancer. He was the eldest of nine children born to Alex and Edith Adams in coastal New Jersey. He worked in the print business most of his life. He worked at a newspaper as a young man. He recently retired from Packaging Specialties, a dynamic product film printing firm he called home for more than 30 years.
As a University of Arkansas graduate who had completed his coursework towards a master's degree in sociology, he enjoyed a good intellectual argument on a truly wide range of subjects preferably with an equally varied and entertaining beer in his hand.
Perhaps it was during his call to honor in the Navy during the Vietnam War that he developed his taste for travel. Despite being an extreme cheapskate, he took his family on many memorable vacations across America, around the islands of the Caribbean, up to Canada and to several lovely European locations.
Preceded in death by his parents, Alex with wife Edith; and granddaughter, Lily, Warren is survived by the love of his life, Nancy; son, Alan with wife, Ronissa; son, Brian with significant other, Lesley; grandson, Addison, grandson, Ian, sister, Kristine with husband, Bruce Paterson; sister, Elizabeth with husband, Robert Torbitt; sister, Ellen with husband, Tony Townsend; sister, Kathryn with husband, Kevin Nease; brother, James with wife, Betty; brother, Carl with wife, Kathy; brother, John with wife, Kim; brother, Robert; several wonderful cousins and many nieces and nephews.
