In lieu of flowers, the family asks donations be made to the Alzheimer’s Association

Bob was born on a farm in Indiana; but moved his family South 50 years ago. His children were his true loves. He was so proud of them. However, he was a man of many talents and interests. He worked a lifetime in the wire business. None of that compares to his work when he was needed by his family. They knew Dad would always help, if at all possible. He was also known for his work helping others with car issues. His daughter, Patty, often called him “Motor Head.” Then there were the Sunday drives with the family - unless NASCAR was on TV, a must see. After retirement, add to that the 4 o’clock drives insisted upon by his beloved dog, Sally. But if we were to talk about one thing Bob did that always made him smile, it would be to know he was in the “Clean Plate Club”. He loved to eat! Ice Cream just might be at the top of the list. To say it was his favorite is an understatement. So, to honor Robert Louis Adcock tonight … have a dish of ice cream.

    Patty, I’m so sorry for your loss! I’ll fondly remember the fun stories you shared with me about taking care of him when it was time for him to come live with you. While that was stressful at the time, you’ll have some wonderful heart-warming chuckles and memories. Love and miss you.

    Patty, I am so sorry for your loss. No matter the age or situation, it’s always hard to lose a parent. I am here if you ever need to talk.
