Joseph E. Adams, 65 of Kincaid, died at 5:56 a.m. Tuesday, April 24, 2018 in his home. Joe was born on March 6, 1953 in Mt. Auburn, one of nine children born to Charles and Bessie (Shartzer) Adams. He left high school to join the United States Army, and he served our country proudly during the Vietnam War. Joe spent his last 20 years with Deborah Nance, and they’ve shared countless happy memories together. He will be dearly missed.

Along with Debbie, Joe is survived by his three children: Peggy, Jeff, and Vanessa; step-son: Charles (Crystal) Nance of Decatur; six step-grandchildren; four sisters: Harriett Carey of Illiopolis; Grace (Jr.) Christopher of Edinburg; Mamie (Donald) Patrick of Farmersville; Shirley Quinlin of Mt. Zion. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers: Benjamin, Frederick, Arthur, and Leroy; and step-son: Donald W. Nance, Jr.

Following Joe’s wishes, he will be cremated, and no service will be held. McClure Funeral Home and Cremation Services in Taylorville is assisting the family with arrangements.  Memories of Joe, or condolences to the family, may be left online at
