Wilbur F. "Bucky" Adams, Jr., 73, of Baldwinville died peacefully Friday, May 18, 2018 in his residence, following a brief illness.
He was born in Ashburnham on January 23, 1945, the son of Wilbur F. Adams, Sr. and the late Marie (Gauvin) Adams.
Wilbur never let his Muscular Dystrophy get in the way as many who knew him can attest to. He enjoyed fishing, camping, cooking, being a grandpa to many, and most of all sharing his skills, knowledge and experience with others. Wilbur also loved animals and adored his dog "Lucy".
He leaves one son, Steven J. Adams of Gardner; three brothers, Russell Adams and his wife Cathy of Baldwinville, James Adams and his wife Cherie of Gardner, Jack Adams and his wife Donna of Orange; two sisters, Carol Ballou and her husband Roger of Templeton, and Patti O'Brien and her husband Joe of Baldwinville; three grandchildren, Allison, Joseph and Anthony; several nieces, nephews and cousins. Wilbur was predeceased by his daughter, Audrey Illdhardt who died in 2016; three brothers, David C. Adams, Phillip J. Adams and Larry S. Adams; two sisters, Kay Richardson and Nancy Adams; and by his dear friend, Dorothy in 2017.
Funeral Services will be private and held at the convenience of the family.
