Leander R. "Lee" Adams

The Intelligencer

Leander R. "Lee" Adams of Port Charlotte, Fla., formerly of Elkins Park, (McKinley), entered into rest on Monday, Sept. 28, 2009, in Port Charlotte. He was 65.

He was the beloved husband of Mamie (Dorothy) (Walker) Adams for 20 years.

Born in Abington, he was the son of the late Howard W. and Jeanette (Moore) Adams.

Lee was educated in the Abington Township School system.

He proudly served his country as a member of the U.S. Army. He was honorably discharged after three years, having spent 16 months in Korea.

Lee was a letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service in both Willow Grove and the Virginia Beach areas. He retired in 1992 after 26 1/2 years of faithful service. Lee also ran a very successful lawn service in the Willow Grove area during the 1970s and 1980s.

After retiring and relocating to Florida, Lee worked as the grounds keeper for the Riverwood Golf & Country Club of Port Charlotte. He loved golfing and going to the beach every opportunity.

Leander grew up attending Salem Baptist Church of Jenkintown. In his later years, he and Mamie enjoyed attending Deep Run Mennonite Church East whenever in Pennsylvania.

In addition to his wife, Leander is survived by one daughter, Lisa A. Adams; and two sons, Leander R. Adams Jr. (Monica), and Eric M. Adams, all of Philadelphia; three stepsons, Brian Moyer (Lisa) of Canton, Pa., Kevin Moyer of Souderton and Brook Moyer (Robin) of Sugarloaf, Pa.

Also mourning his loss are two sisters, Emily M. Trotter of Elkins Park, and Harriet H. Luker (Wayne) of Willow Grove; one brother, Gary V. Adams of Philadelphia; and former wife and mother of his four children, Mrs. Theresa Bailey of Lindenwold, N.J.

Lee was preceded in death by his youngest son, Sean S. Adams, and two older brothers, Kenneth M. and Albert J. Wallace.

Also left to cherish memories of Lee are 12 grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and six step-grandchildren; one very special cousin, Leon Harris Jr. (Laura Smith) of Bradenton, Fla.; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Psalm 48:14

For this God is our God for ever and ever;

he will be our guide even to the end.
