April 1, 1917 - December 2, 2008

Floyd "Blackie" Adamson was born April 1, 1917 in Montgomery County near Mt. Ida and died at home with his family on December 2, 2008. He was a member of the Church of Christ Faith. He was predeceased by his parents Charles E. Adamson and Nellie Adamson, brothers Robert Adamson and Clayton Adamson and sisters Velma Finney and Irene Whitlow

He is survived by his wife of 66 years Grace Day Adamson, children Joyce Adamson Worley (husband Roy) and Charles Norman Adamson, grandchildren Michael Allen Worley and Tiffany Adamson Parrish (husband Steve).

Mr. Adamson was a World War II veteran serving in the 9th Armored Division. He received a belated Presidential Unit Citation in 1991 for his actions during the Battle of the Bulge in 1944. Mr. Adamson lived in North Little Rock for many years working and teaching at Pulaski Vo Tech in the air conditioning field. He retired as a civilian employee of the Little Rock Air Force Base. After retiring he and his wife moved to Corley where they lived until 3 years ago when they moved back to North Little Rock.

The family would like to thank Hospice, especially Suzie Johnson, for their care during this time.

My sympathy to the families. My father, Elliott Adamson, was Uncle Elmers youngest brother. Floyd and I have talked several times the last few years. To me, he looks like I remember Grandpa Adamson. My prayers are with you at this time.

Uncle Blackie - I'm so sorry I couldn't get back to see you again. I know you're in much better shape than any of us now but I'm sure gonna miss you. Guess you're busy now visiting with everyone! Better watch mama, she'll have you in a card game before you can blink!!
Aunt Grace, I love you. I know you'll do fine and if you are like I was when Davy passed, you're in a fog of protection and Heavenly Father has his arms around you, Joyce and the rest of the family. God bless and keep you. Hope to see you soon.
