Obituary

Phillip Lee Adams, 74 years of age, passed away Wednesday, January 6, 2021, in his home after a long battle with cancer.

Phillip was born June 5, 1946, in Corning, Arkansas, to the late Preston and Betty Adams. He was the oldest of the couple’s three children; however, he had two older half sisters. He was the first to pass and is survived by all four siblings. Phil grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado and joined the United States Navy at the tender age of seventeen. He retired from the Navy and joined the Army Reserves and worked his way up the ranks to become a major.

The navy led Phil to the love of his life, Haruko Harada, and they were married on February 7, 1969 in Yokosuka, Japan for 52 years. The couple was blessed with a daughter, Michiko Christine, who went to see our Lord on February 8th, 1994 after a fatal car accident.
Phillip lived in Oklahoma City for several years, retiring from the army reserves on June 5, 2006. He worked as an Engineering Technician for OG&E from September 19, 1989 to retirement on April 30, 2011. He loved to learn even as an adult, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Management of Human Resources on May 20, 1990, and a Master of Science in Management on August 15, 1991. He was passionate about computer technology and constantly learning. He loved God, and at one time had his own small congregation who met at his and Haruko’s home.

Both Phil and Haruko worked hard at their jobs and retired to spend their golden years together. Phil developed a passion for motorcycles late in life, but eventually gave them up, much to his wife’s relief. After they retired, he and Haruko busied themselves with puzzles and hobbies. Although his siblings and families are scattered around the states, he will be missed by them all.

Phil was preceded in death by both parents, his daughter and a host of aunts and uncles on his father’s side.

He is survived by his wife, Haruko, of the home; sisters--Penny Forbes of Elkhart, KS; Donna Delaune of Houston, TX; Betty Schultz of Port Jervis, NY and husband, Horace, one brother, Burt Adams, of Winter Park, FL. Nephews and families: Waylon Forbes and wife Shilo, daughters Jessica and Jennifer of Elkhart, KS; Casey Forbes, sons, Chayton and Braxton, and daughter Darcy of Guymon, Ok; Brice Forbes and wife Natasha, sons, Ethan Shopteese, Julian, Austin, and Wyatt, a daughter, Chandra Shopteese, of Bocoshe, OK. Nieces and families: Becky Phillips and husband, Flavil, and triplets, two boys and a girl, and Cathy Harris and two daughters, all of Houston, TX. Phillip Patrick Lee Adams and sister, Mandy, both of Winter Park, FL.
