December 6, 1949 ~ January 14, 2024 (age 74) 74 Years Old
Billy Adams was born on December 6, 1949 in Shelby, North Carolina. He was known to most as Pete. Pete departed this life on January 14, 2024. He joined his late father and mother, Alonzo and Annie Pearl Adams. Also greeting him into heaven are his late siblings: William Adams and Lesia Farmer.
Pete moved to Cincinnati, Ohio as a child and attended Cincinnati Public Schools. He worked as a custodian in local nursing homes. He joined the church as a youth and frequented New Temple Baptist Church.
Here to continue living in honor of Pete are his son, Billy “Pete” Adams, Jr. and daughter, Tahnya McCloud. He was very proud to be the grandfather to Cheyenne Adams and Kourtni Hamilton. His three great-grandchildren and remaining siblings, Rose Taylor and Bernice Crumpton (Bobby) will carry on his legacy. He also leaves behind nieces, nephews, many extended family members and friends.
He enjoyed family gatherings and good home cooked meals; snacks were his favorite. We all have great memories of Pete and each amazing story shows the impact he had on all of us. Each story ends with joy and laughter.
