Robert "Bobby" Adams, Jr. Obituary

Robert “Bobby” Franklin Adams Jr. (55), lifelong resident of Randolph, Ohio, passed unexpectedly of an illness on January 28, 2024, in Akron, Ohio.

No words can adequately describe the man “Bobby” was to so many. He had an infectious personality, indescribable way of bringing people together, a warm smile, and a talent of talking to anyone. He was well known for his hilarious and appropriately timed jokes, Heinen’s infamous “Question of the Day,” and innovative song lyrics. He was a friend to all, but especially loved his family, and went the extra mile to be present for important life events, no matter how big or small. He will be remembered as a devoted Christian, avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan, attentive husband, dad, son, brother, uncle, cousin, and most proudly known, wonderful grandpa. He was a caring and giving man who will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and co-workers in the days to come.

“Bobby” is survived by his best friend and wife of 34 years, Debra, as well as his two daughters, Jena (Ben), Sara, and grandson, Donald. He is also survived by his beloved mother Diane, sister Tracey (Kevin), and brother Steven (Teresa), as well as many extended family members.
