Funeral services for Carl Edward “Bo” Adams, Jr., 44, of Sperry, OK, were held Friday, May 31, 2019 at Osage Oaks Church of God in Sperry, OK. Reverend Jerry Harper officiated, and burial was in Rest Haven Cemetery in Sperry, OK. Casket bearers were Max Moore, Shane Cavin, Josh Selvidge, Jeff Carter, Mike Cinco, and Johnny Holmes.
Bo was born January 10, 1975 in Tulsa, OK to Carl Edward Adams, Sr. and Jeannie Lynn Hamil. He passed away May 27, 2019 in Tulsa, OK.
Bo grew up in Sperry and graduated from Sperry High School. He was an outstanding running back for the Sperry football team. He was well-known for his skills and dedication to the sport he loved. Bo also enjoyed working on vehicles. He lived with and helped to care for his father, and he loved spending time with his nieces and great-nephew. His love for animals was one of his greatest joys in life. Bo wanted to save every animal that came into his yard. He never met a stranger and he would give everything he owned if it meant he was helping another. He worked as an engineer for the BNSF railroad for 6 years. An injury at work, followed by a back surgery, brought the darkness of addiction into his life. Bo is free now from those burdens, but he will be missed by all those who knew and loved him.
He is survived by his father, Carl Adams, Sr.; mother, Jeannie Hamil; sister, Pennie Adams-Barlow; little sisters, Shae Adams, and Kara Adams; nieces Shelby Smith and Paige Capell; great-nephew, Kason Johns; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and many other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Juanita Marie Adams, Jack Lewis Adams, Sr.; uncle, Jack Lewis Adams, Jr.; and step-mother, Patricia Adams.
