Bobby Joe Adams, 83, Veteran, of Cartersville, passed away peacefully at his home on Friday, July 26, 2019 after a brief illness. Bob was straight forward with stellar morals and ethics. Typically, he told a story upon greeting you and was a serious local history buff. One of Bob's impressive traits was his devotion to family and friends, especially his grandchildren.

He then opened his own business, Bob's Tune-up Shop, in Cartersville, where he specialized in auto body work/refinishing as well as auto repair.

He is survived by his wife, Linda Adams of 33 years, children Donny Adams, Staci Adams Hester, Donovan Tucker (Carrie), Dondra Perkins (Landon), sister Peggy Stansfield of Mississippi and Frances Wolf of Cartersville. He is also survived by grandchildren Barrett Hester, Grace Adams, Evan Hester, Chloe Warren, Claire Tucker, & Emberly Perkins. An additional grandchild, Lincoln Perkins, is due in August, 2019. He is also known and loved as granddaddy by Conner, Addison, Brantley and Easton New. 

A visitation and Celebration of Life Service will be held at the First Baptist Church of Cartersville, 241 Douthit Ferry Road by Pastor Danny Barker, on Wednesday, July 31, 2019.
