Thomas Michael “Tommy” Adams, passed away peacefully on May 20, 2023, in Temple, Texas surrounded by his family.

Born on May 13, 1970, to Thomas "TJ" Joseph Adams and Suzann (Rieff) Adams, Tommy was a loving son, father, grandfather, and uncle who touched the lives of many with his kindness.

After graduating from Academy High School, Tommy went on to work as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) before joining Wilsonart, where he dedicated many years of service until his retirement. Tommy married Christene Lee in 1993 and together they raised two children.

Tommy's greatest joy in life was spending time with his family and friends. Tommy was an avid sports fan and loved watching his favorite teams, the Dallas Cowboys and the Texas Longhorns.
