William “Bill” Adams

Budd Lake resident,

Beloved husband, father, and grandpa

Mr. William Richard “Bill” Adams, 84, died on July 30, 2016 at his home. He was born in Trenton and lived in Ewing before moving to Budd Lake 45 years ago. He served in the U S Navy during the Korean War. Bill was a renaissance man, he could do anything. Rebuild cars, build additions on houses, he could do welding, woodworking, and most anything he wanted to try. Bill loved the beach and riding his motorcycle; he enjoyed fishing, reading, traveling and most of all, being the biggest cheerleader for his wife at trapshooting competitions. He worked as a car mechanic, owner of a service station in Ewing, a handyman, and sales person. He could sell anything: cars, windows, waterproofing, but what he loved most was selling real estate.

Bill is survived by his wife Kolleen (Kish) Adams of 44 years, his three sons and their families: Jason and Weena, Jeffrey and Brandee and their sons Skyler and Ethan, and Christian and Christina and their children, son Mason and daughter Elliana. Bill was dearly loved and will be missed by many.
