He died as a result of being stubborn
[EDITOR’S NOTE: Some obituaries are just too good to pass up-even if we didn’t write them. This gem, written by James Adams’ son, Jeremiah, appeared in the Star Tribune in Casper, Wyoming on September 16, 2008.]
A celebration of life for James William “Jim” Adams, 53, will be held at a later date.
He died Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2008 at Memorial Hospital of Converse County in Douglas. Jim, who had tired of reading obituaries noting other’s courageous battles with this or that disease, wanted it known that he lost his battle. It was primarily as a result of being stubborn and not following doctor’s orders, or maybe for just living life a little too hard for better than five decades.
He was born June 8, 1955 in Garrison, N.D. the son of James William and Ruby Helen (Clark) Adams.
Deprived of his final wish…to be run over by a beer truck
