Wilbur F."Bucky" Adams Jr

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.
Memorial contributions may be made to Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association, PO Box 105, Glenolden, PA 19036 to aid in research, or to your local animal shelter. Please reference in memory of Wilbur Adams, Jr.

Bye, Buck

So many years of fond memories.  Camping and playing cards until the wee hours of the morning, with Auntie shushing us because we were laughing too loud.  You were so good to my children and they will all remember you with love.  I know you are resting in peace because of the good man that you were.  Please give my mom a hug from me when you see her in heaven.

Love, Donna
