Charlie H. Adams
Charlie Herbert Adams, 94, Frankton, went to be with the Lord on Nov. 13, 2019, surrounded by his family following a well lived life.
He was born April 22, 1925, in Montgomery, Tennessee, the son of Dan E. and Maggie Adams.

Charlie was a member of the First Baptist Church in Orestes. In 1987 after 42 years of service, Charlie retired from Guide Lamp where he worked as a buffer. Charlie will be remembered for loving to sing songs and tell stories of the old days from his front porch to his family and friends. His hobbies included fishing and taking out his beagle hounds to run in the woods. Charlie will be greatly missed but lovingly remembered by his dear family.
