Jody Walton Adams

     On December 22, 1972 a precious gift was born into
the home of Jimmie and Barbara Adams. Jody Walton
Adams was the second child born to this family.
Jody passed from this life on September 11, 2005,
making his stay on earth 32 years, 8 months and 20 days. Jody is
survived by his parents, Jimmie and Barbara Caudill Adams; his older
sister, Melissa Diane Slone, and her husband, Mark; and his younger
sister, Kara Margaret Adams. He is also survived by several aunts,
uncles, and cousins.
     Jody attended Carr Creek Elementary and Knott County Central
High School. He graduated from Hazard Community Technical
College and obtained his Master Electrician license. He worked for
Elliot Supply of Pikeville, Kentucky, and was working on the new
Letcher County Central High School. Jody was a talented electrician
and loved the work that he was doing. His employers and co-workers
were always complimentary of his work.
     Jody loved to fish and hunt and spend time with his family and
friends. His greatest thrill was to out do his daddy whether they were
hunting, shooting clay pigeons, or fishing. He especially loved to
beat Jimmie at grouse hunting. He also loved taking his dogs out to
hunt with his uncle, Ricky.
     Jody was very close to his mother and teased her that her three
children were the “3 P’s”. Missie was the Perfect one, Kara was the
Privileged one, and he was the Problem.
     Jody was an extremely intelligent man who was blessed with the
ability to talk to anyone about anything. His interests were so varied
that he had a wide range of knowledge about many topics, and could
elaborate on any subject. Jody had a warm, generous spirit and showed
great respect for people. His family could always depend on him to
show up when they needed help. Jody never met a stranger. He had a
knack for making the people around him feel comfortable.
     Psalm 18:6 says, “In my distress I called upon the LORD, and
cried unto my God; he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry
came before him, even into his ears.” I believe that God heard Jody’s
cry of distress and delivered him.
     Jody’s life on earth was short, but was lived each day to the fullest.
Ask anyone in his family and they will have a “Jody Story” to
share. Jody had the ability to leave each one of us with the feeling
that we were special to him, and in each of our hearts Jody has a
special place that will never be forgotten.
