Kenai resident Alfred Ray Adamson died Thursday, July 18, 2002, at Central Peninsula General Hospital in Soldotna. He was 65.
At his request, no services are planned. His ashes will be scattered at the Adamson Family Farm in Jacksonville, Texas.
Mr. Adamson was born July 21, 1937, in Texas. He received a degree from the University of Texas. He also served in the U.S. Air Force. He moved to Kenai in 1992, and worked as a self-employed consulting engineer.
Mr. Adamson was a Master Mason and Shriner. He was also an avid, longtime aviator.
"In keeping with the way daddy lived his life, he wanted family and friends to celebrate his life at his passing and requested that a formal service not be held. He lived life to its fullest. His sense of humor and his strong spiritual beliefs and convictions have touched many lives. We are all better people having known him. Our joyful memories and his spirit will be with us always." his family said.
Mr. Adamson is survived by his daughter, Angela Adamson Hansen; grandsons, Marcus Ray Crouch, Tommy and Jacob Woods, all of Kenai, formerly of Jacksonville and Tyler, Texas; brothers, Bob Adamson of Jacksonville and Thurston Adamson of Houston, Texas; a sister, Dolores Mullane of Jacksonville; and nieces and nephews in Texas and Virginia.
