It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Stanley Ray Adams. Our Husband and Dad passed away, surrounded by his family, of complications of a stroke, brought on by a heart attack.
Stan was born Nov. 6, 1947 to Von Stanley and Leah June Doty Adams. He graduated from Granger High School in 1966 and joined the Navy shortly after. He was very proud to have served his country and to be a veteran. It seems fitting that he passed away on Veteran’s Day.
Stan married Irene Broadbent on Sept. 18, 1970. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple, Jan. 25, 1991. They were fortunate to have spent 46 years together.
Our Dad loved our Mom, and they had so much fun together. We are grateful that they were able to spend the last year traveling and laughing.
Traveling and being in the outdoors, hunting and fishing were a few of his favorite things. Lake Powell was his favorite place, and we spent many years there as a family, always over Father’s Day. Dad was very proud of his family and was always so supportive. We know our Dad loved us.
Stan worked for IHC for 20 years where he made lifelong friends and truly enjoyed his job. Stan had a big heart and was always the first to show up to help. He did so much for others, never wanting or expecting recognition.
Survived by his wife and by children, Heath (Jeannie), Brandi (Tyler), Kaysie (Tim), Richard Silcock; former son-in-law, Justin Robinson and his 12 grandchildren with one on the way, whom he is spending time with now.
Preceded in death by his parents; father-in-law, Donald Broadbent; brother-in-law, Austin Henrie; and dear friend Winn Frame, whom he has missed so much.
Funeral services were held Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2016 at the Mountainville Ward, 461 N. 300 West, Mt. Pleasant, Utah with a viewing from 9-10:30 a.m. A graveside service was held Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2016, at 11 a.m. at the Tonaquint Cemetery. 1777 S. Dixie Drive, St. George, Utah.
