From The Seattle Times, Sunday March 18, 2007 Complete obit. No photo with obit.
RICHARD E. ADAMS Of Bothell (WA, passed away March 12th, 2007 from lung cancer diagnosed in Feb. He is survived by his adopted, disabled son, FRANKLIN and sister, DOROTHY, both of Bothell, and nieces, NANCY, LISA and JESSICA.
Richard graduated from U.C.L.A. in 1953 and went to work at Seattle Trust and Savings Bank, from which he retired. He then traveled abroad for some time, returning to Seattle to open a unique import shop, Casa Iberia. In 1985, he adopted Franklin and moved to Bothell. Richard was a man of many talents, who was interested in and cared about the world, his community, and especially people, of whom he made many close friends. His passing has left a huge "hole" in our lives and we will miss him greatly.
At his request, no services, but memorials, if desired, may go to the charity of your choice.
I am a Seattle WA resident, not related to this family.
