Obituary for Jimmie Charles Adam

Jimmie Charles Adam, 92, went to his Lord on Tuesday, January 23 at the Isle at Watercrest Dominion in Leon Springs. Jimmie was born on November 11, 1925 to Willie Eugene and Lillie Katherine Schuetz Adam at their home in the Balcones Community, located 4 miles south of Boerne in Kendall County.
A lifelong resident of Kendall County, Jimmie is a descendant of Conrad Adam who settled in the Kendall County area in 1854. In 1984, Jimmie’s farm was recognized by the Texas Department of Agriculture at the annual Family Land Heritage ceremony, for Texas families who have kept their farms and ranches in continuous agricultural production for 100 years or more.
Jimmie was an Army combat veteran of WWII, serving with distinction in the Asiatic-Pacific Theater with Company L, 21st Infantry, 24th Division. He received the Soldiers Medal for outstanding heroism saving a fellow soldier. Following the war, he returned to Kendall County, where he worked at Camp Stanley in addition to farming. He served his community and his church as well as his country. In his community, he served as President of the Kendall County Fair Association, Post Commander of VFW Post 688, President of the local chapter of National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association (NARFE), and for 40 years sat on the board of the Guadalupe Valley Telephone Company. He was active at his church, St. John Lutheran where he was a member for 71 years, serving as a member of the Church Council and chief chili cook for the Fall Festival and Wild Game Dinners. He married Sally Jo Richardson December 17, 1947 at St. John Lutheran Church in Boerne.
Sally and Jimmie loved to dance; square dancing with the Boerne Bunch, round dancing and country and western dancing. In later life Jimmie’s motto was “If you can walk, you can dance!” He also enjoyed playing cards and dominos with his friends and family.
He was preceded in death by his wife of 57 years Sally Jo Adam, his parents, brother Chester Adam and nephew Chester “Tuffy” Adam, Jr.
He is survived by his daughter Kathryn Adam Hurst and husband James of Boerne: his son Bryan C. Adam and wife Donna of Spring Branch; grandchildren Jacob Hurst and wife Jamie; Sarah Lewis and husband Erik; Tanya Yost and husband Duncan; Derek Adam and wife Amy; great grandchildren Sebastian Hurst, Bowie Kate Hurst, Adair Yost, Aubrey Yost; sister-in-law June Adam; nieces Peggy Adam Mott and husband Gary of Junction; Sheri Adam of Boerne; Alice Anderson and husband John of Boerne; nephews D.
