Mitchell L. Adams 69, of Island, Kentucky went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, December 18, 2019 at Baptist Health Madisonville. Mitchell Lee Adams was born July 6, 1950 in Daviess County, Kentucky to the late Orda Clinton and Bobbie Jean Pagan Adams, was married to the former Mary Gene Wood October 16, 1970 and was better known as “Mitch” to both his family and friends. He retired after 20 years of service from I.B.E.W. Local #1701 in Owensboro and was a U.S. Navy Veteran. Mitch had a distinctive laugh that could be picked out of any crowd. He enjoyed driving around the neighborhood in his little red cart, visiting with everyone and spending time with both his family and friends, especially their children which gave him great joy in his life. Mitch enjoyed both fishing and playing with animals. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.
Survivors include his wife of 49 years, Mary Adams; a daughter, Kim Geary (Larry) of Island; and two brothers, Barry Adams (Tammy) of Daphne, Alabama and Chris Adams (Cherelle) of Owensboro.
There will be no public services. Muster Funeral Homes, Calhoun Chapel is handling the arrangements for Mitch’s family.
