18 Wheels Of Love – Chester Adams RIP (April 26, 1945 – May 27, 2010)

I’m sad today to report that my Stepfather, Chester Adams passed away this morning in Florence AL.

He’s been really sick for several years and had twice made amazing recoveries from deathbed conditions.

He’s been suffering from a host of problems, especially congestive heart failure for about three years and was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer.
He’s been having a really tough time with the treatment for that and took a major turn for the worse this past weekend.

My mom is doing alright considering but it’s gonna be a long sad road for her for a while.

Their courtship was the subject of our song and monologue “18 Wheels of Love” and his near death experience a few years ago was detailed in the Austin City Limits version last year.

I don’t know yet what kind of arrangements will be made but will post something at a later time when we know more.

Please keep Mom in your thoughts today.

Chester was a cool guy and truly a force of nature that will be forever missed in our family.
