Don Vernon Adams, Jr.
Don Vernon Adams, Jr. (Nicky), age 52 of Augusta, Georgia met his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Tuesday, November 8, 2011 at MCG Hospital after a courageous battle with leukemia. He is preceded in death by his parents, Martha and Vernon Adams and nephew, Luke Eubanks. Don recently retired as an operator at SRNS after 23 years of service.
Don is remembered as the best brother ever by his sisters: Terri Adams – Gay (Phil) of Augusta, Georgia; Sue Anderson (Alvin) of Martinez, Georgia; and Donna Eubanks of St. Simons Island, Georgia. He is remembered as the best uncle ever by nieces and nephews: Jacob Adams; Maggie Witherington (Sam); Shane Gay; Adam Anderson (Christina); Martha Eubanks; and Matthew Eubanks. He is loved and cherished by his great nieces and nephews: Lily Grace and Danner Witherington; Carson and Charleston Anderson; Marissa, Avery and Brittany Eubanks; and Eli Armstrong.
In sickness and in health, Don lived a life of selflessness, love and laughter. In honor of his wishes to forego funeral services, the family asks that friends and loved ones hold dear the many cherished memories and laughter that Don left behind. A celebration of Don’s life will be held at a later date.
The family would like to express heartfelt gratitude to the physicians and staff of the MCG 5South Cancer Unit and the MCG Cancer Center for the loving, compassionate care given to Don and family members during his illness and treatments. They will always be cherished as an extension of our hero, “Nicky’s” family.
