Relatives and friends are kindly invited to attend a graveside service at 11am on Friday, July 25, at the New Cemetery 192 South Bridge St., Somerville. A repast will be held on Saturday, July 26, at 1:00 PM at his sister's home.
Chris was born in Somerville on July 16, 1942. He attended four years at American University in Washington, D.C. He enjoyed watching sports, listening to music and staying current on world events. He had an incredible memory of the past and present. His favorite thing was to give a person a nickname. It usually brought a smile to their faces when they would hear the name he chose for them. Chris always had a big hello for visitors, residents and staff at Hamilton Grove Healthcare Center.
He was predeceased by his parents Wilbur I Adams, Mildred Ehni Adams and his sister Phyllis Adams Kolvites. Surviving are his sister Alice Adams Bechok and her husband Robert and three nieces, one nephew, two great nieces and two great nephews. Chris had a special bond with his beloved niece Elizabeth. He always enjoyed hearing about her travels. When you hear a song from the 1950's think of Chris.
