Mark Adams - June 08, 2013


Mark Allen Adams, age 26, of Haxtun, died June 8, 2013, in Holyoke. Mark was born Aug. 13, 1986, to Robert and Karen (Mather) Adams in Sterling.

Mark was raised in Peetz along with brothers Jonathan and Matthew. He graduated from Peetz High School and went on to Goodland, Kan., to get his degree in diesel technology from Northwest Kansas Tech. After a five-year courtship, Mark married Alana (Scheid) Adams and they were blessed with two children: Hailey and Lindsey.

Mark worked at Case IH in Sidney, Neb., for five years and Cabela’s retail in Sidney. The family moved to rural Haxtun last year so Mark could take a job at MV Equipment in Holyoke, where he served as a parts salesman.

Mark enjoyed doing anything that required him to be outdoors, four-wheeling and Dodge trucks. He enjoyed visiting and always had time to stop and talk. Most of all, he loved his family.

Preceding him in death were his mother, Karen Adams-Dallegge; grandpa, Lyle Mather; grandpa, Wayne Adams; and infant brother, Stephen.

He is survived by his wife, Alana; daughters, Hailey and Lindsey; father, Robert Adams of Peetz; brothers, Jon Adams and wife Ashlee of Iowa and Matt Adams and wife Alicia of Big Springs, Neb.; nephews, Riley and Andrew of Big Springs; nieces, Madisen of Big Springs and Elizabeth of Iowa; grandmothers, Gladys Adams and Marion Mather; several aunts and uncles; and dear friends, Brandon Sparks and Levi Whitman.

There was no visitation for Mark as cremation was chosen.

A memorial service was held June 15 at Gerk Funeral Home in Holyoke. Services concluded at the funeral home.

Memorial contributions may be given to the Mark Adams Memorial Fund, 14426 County Road 7, Haxtun, CO 80731.
