Adams Sr., Tony F. - Bucksport  
BUCKSPORT - Tony F. Adams Sr. passed away on June 27, 2015 with his loving wife by his side. He was born on January 1, 1940 to Forrest and Alice Adams. He was the first baby born that year at EMMC. Tony attended schools in Bangor and obtained his diploma. He enlisted in the United States Army Reserves on April 20, 1957 and served with the 76th TNG 1st Battalion, Company A until he was honorably discharged on December 12, 1995. He thoroughly enjoyed his years in the Reserves. He strived to do his best and it showed when he obtained the rank of staff sergeant. As an instructor he trained troops at Fort Benning, Georgia, Maine and Canada. He was proud of being a part of the US Army Reserves and it showed when he would reminisce with family about the years that he served. He worked as a papermaker at Eastern Fine Paper Company in Brewer for five years. Later, he transferred to the paper company in Bucksport. He worked for 22 years before retiring in 2003. After retiring from the papermaking industry he went to work for Securitas. He enjoyed working in Brewer, Prospect, Searsport, Old Town and Greenville doing security work until he had to retire because of health issues. He was a volunteer firefighter for the Orland and Bucksport departments. He worked for 20 years and retired in 1994. As a firefighter he battled many fires and helped to save lives. His firefighting skills were put to the test when he had to help with a recovery of his daughter's eight year old friend from a fire. His life was impacted from this experience. He was always adamant about the dangers of fire and taught others the importance of preventing fires. He enjoyed his family, collecting coins, reminiscing about his Reserve years, visiting family in Aroostook County and spending time with his granddog, Teeka. He will be greatly missed by his wife, Eileen, daughter Vickie and son Tony II. He also leaves behind nine grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren, daughter-in-law, Kecia, sister Betty Inman and husband Mike, and brother Ronald and wife Rosie, and several nieces and nephews. He will also be greatly missed by his faithful canine companion, Teeka. He was predeceased by his grandparents, parents, son Ricky in 2013 and brothers, Gary and John. Family and friends will gather for visitation from 4-6pm on Wednesday, July 1, 2015 at Mitchell-Tweedie Funeral Home in Bucksport. Donations in Tony's name may be sent to Hospice of Hancock County, 14 McKenzie Ave., Ellsworth, ME 04605. You are now free and at peace. I will love you always and miss you lots. Love Victor Ireland Charlie Kilo Ireland Echo (Army code for Vickie-daughter)
