Adams, Joseph Townsend, born November 24, 1927 passed away on February 24, 2019.

Son of Constant and Elizabeth Adams (nee Price), he was predeceased by his daughter, Barbara Adams Cross; and his sisters, Edna Mae Learn and Gladys Merryman.

Joe worked at American News, Permacel Tape, Washington National, and finally at Franklin Electric. Joe grew up on the family farm in Northfield and enjoyed telling stories of his childhood memories of farm life. He spent much of his adult life in Absecon, later moved to Toms River, Florida, and Delaware, before finally returning to Atlantic county to reside with his daughter and son-in-law in Galloway.

Joe enjoyed traveling to Brazil, Spain, England and the Mediterranean. He loved taking his family on camping trips, and had a lifelong interest in gardening. He enjoyed roller skating, and later sailing. He took an early interest in computers and continued to follow the newest developments throughout his life. He was a lifelong learner, and always had a book to read.

His family and his relationship with God were very important to him.

To the man I called Dad, whom I loved and respected. A man who encouraged me in many ways in life . A man who raised a Family to know God in the heart and by his faith and his families faith brought myself and his daughter Doris to become a new creation in God's Son Jesus. In life to know God is life indeed and Dad always shared his faith. All I can share about him is his family of faithfully born again Christians who encouraged me in Faith. Joe Adams is the Patriarch in a lineage in whom many can share of his faithfulness in Christ, Well done faithful servant, Rest
