Frank E. Adams

Frank E. Adams, of Woodcrest Villa, Lancaster went to his eternal rest on May 18, 2010, after a long illness.

He was the son of the late Frank Edward Adams and Myrtle Alspach Adams. He was preceded in death by a sister, Elizabeth Kurtz.

He is survived by eight cousins: Mary Ellen Rebman, Lancaster to whom he was very close for many years; Kathleen Harnish, Nancy Dorsey, Clara Koenig, Vera Walton, Ruby Mentzer, Jack S. Adams and Robert E. Adams.

Frank was in the military for 20 years. He joined the cavalry when he was seventeen and later transferred to the infantry. After his discharge, he was employed by the Keppel Candy Company, until their dissolution and later was employed by Millersville University from where he retired.

Frank was a member of the 8thWard Club, and a former member of the Amvets. He enjoyed playing cards, watching television and riding around Woodcrest Villa on his motor scooter.

A Private Memorial Service will be held at the Charles F. Snyder Jr. Funeral Home and Chapel with Pastor Jacquie Sheely officiating. Interment will be private and held at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery. To send online condolences, please visit, Snyder FuneralHome.com

My most sincere and reverent condolences upon the passing of my first cousin.
My memories include seeing this handsome cavalry soldier visit my mother who was his favorite aunt..As friends and acquaintances of Frankie, please accept my sincere condolences. 
The country has lost a soldier, a WWII veteran, and a devout patriot.
J. Skip Adams and family

I want to send a tribute to Frank on Memorial Day as we honored our soldiers of war. He was so proud of his country and his years of service in the Army and Air Force. He railed against the liberal leanings of today’s politicians.
Frank was very much part of our family, as my sister was his dear friend for thirty-seven years.  I particularly remember Frank and Marge visiting us many times in Boston on their way to their annual camping trip in Acadia, Maine. Frank was a good man, unique and entertaining in many ways.  I will miss him.
Jeanne Velde, Joe and Alex Lehmann

Frank was a major influence in my life. We were close friends for 37 years. Frank was "adopted" by my family. I have many fond memories of Frank and the unique direct way that he expressed himself.
