Terry Adams

December 9, 1946 — September 23, 2015

Terry L. Adams, 68 of Waukesha, WI, went to be with his Lord and Savior on the afternoon of Wednesday, September 23, 2015 at Rainbow Hospice of Johnson Creek.
Terry was born on December 9, 1946 in Burlington, IA the son of Harvey and Dorothy (James) Adams. On September 9, 1966 he married Grace Cook at Corning Christian Church of Corning, IA. The couple enjoyed 49 years as a married couple and raised 3 daughters. He served his country in the U.S. Air Force and later fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming a Corporate Pilot. He was most recently employed as a Flight Safety Instructor with Flight Safety International of Tucson, AZ. Terry counted it as a privilege to be dearly loved by both his biological family, the Peterson family of Burlington, IA and his adopted family, the Adams/James families of Corning, IA. Terry was a life-long follower of Christ and was passionate about furthering His kingdom. Terry served as Elder at Grace Church of Sahuarita, AZ and was an active member of the Worship Team, wherever he attended. Terry loved to sing praise to his Creator and was a talented guitarist. He was a Chaplin for Racers for Christ, an organization that provides chapel services, pastoral care, outreach and Christian fellowship to motor sports events. Terry's specialty was Sprint Cars. His passions in life were Faith, Family, Music and Flying - in that order. He had a contagious personality and was deeply loved by all who knew him.
Terry is survived by: his Wife Grace Adams of Waukesha; Daughters Julia (Chad) Heiman of Watertown, WI, Amanda (Sean) McCormack of New Berlin, WI, and Emily (Vincent) Markowski of Fort Wayne, IN; Grandchildren Hannah, Carly, Mikayla, and Ashley; Sister Sharon Shank, Brother Charles (Connie) Peterson, Sister Diana (Jay) Swartzwelter, Sister Tamara Fredricks, and Sister Carolyn (Daniel) Hallenbeck. He is also survived by a number of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
