- Eulogy by David and Pat Troedel
Bill was born on 5th June 1924 in Lismore.
Bill?s grand-father Charles ?Billy? Adams was born in Dorset England and was the New South Wales tug boat captain in Sydney. His Grandmother Emily Wood was born at Macleay River.
Bill?s father William George Adams was born in Paddington and worked for the Perdiau Rubber Company in Sydney before moving to Alstonville and later to Main Arm. He was the Colour Sergeant of the St George Regiment before he married Ethel Johnston, whose father Edward Johnston was one of the pioneers of the Richmond River district.
Bill worked on banana plantations around the Main Arm district after leaving school.
He enlisted in the AIF on 21st June 1943 and served in the 2/13 Composite Anti-Aircraft Regiment and was discharged on 27th September 1946. He was awarded the War Medal 1939-1945 and the Australian Service Medal 1939-1945.
He met Mary in 1946 and after working as a builder?s labourer in Sydney for a time moved to Coffs Harbour where he worked as a share farmer growing tomatoes in Sheppard?s Lane. After the floods in the early 1950?s went to Moss Vale for a time and worked for the PMG. Then back to Coffs Harbour where he worked as a share farmer with Tom and Nellie Larcombe growing tomatoes and then bananas in North Boambee Road and then worked as a representative for a Sydney Banana Buyer in the Coffs Harbour district prior to his retirement.
Both Bill and Mary were active members of the Coastal Patrol for some years.
Bill and Mary moved to Boronia Street Sawtell and in his retirement, he played golf and bowls. Sadly, Mary passed away in 1996 and Bill was left to look after himself. He then moved into Boambee Gardens and his daily routine was to drive up to the headland, read the paper and feed the sea gulls before having his morning coffee and toast at the RSL Club at 10 am and then play the poker machines.
Bill?s eldest sister Norma Somerville passed away in 2016, and his younger brother Raymond in 2005. He is survived by a younger sister Margaret Daly.

|ADAMS-JOHNSTON. On Wednesday evening, 21th November, a quiet wedding was celebrated at St. Paul's Presbyterian Church, Lismore, when William George Adams, ex- Clr -Sergt, St. G.E.R. Regiment, eldest son of the late C. B. Adams, master mariner of Sydney, was married to Ethel, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. Johnston, of Binna Burra, and late of Alstonville. The Rev. Mr. MacKillop officiated. Mr. Coleman presided at the organ, and played several selections, also the" Wedding March" as the bridal party left the church. The bride, who entered the church with her father, was daintily gowned in a simple dress of ivory crepe de chine and georgette. Her beautiful court train which hung from her shoulders was of crepe de chine lined with shell pink, and was prettily trimmed with pearls. The bridal veil was of embroidered tulle, arranged mob cap fashion, and was held in place by a wreath of orange blossoms, kindly lent by Mrs. Barrett, of Goolmangar, her train and veil being lent by her cousin, Mrs. J. Wilson, of Goolmangar. The bride carried a lovely sheaf of arum lilies tied with tulle streamers, and she was attended by two bridesmaids. The chief bridesmaid, Miss L. Johnston, (sister), was becomingly gowned in pale pink net, trimmed with touches of pale blue with large tulle bow in her hair, and carried a beautiful, bouquet of red, white and pink Gerberas and asparagus fern, tied with pale pink tulle streamers. The second bridesmaid, Miss Eileen Dunstan (niece of the bridegroom), wore a dainty dress of blue silk trimmed with white ribbon. She also wore a large tulle bow in her hair and carried a bouquet of pale pink roses and harebells and asparagus fern, tied with pale blue tulle streamers. Each bridesmaid wore a Nellie Stewart bangle, the gifts of the bridegroom. The bridegroom was supported by his brother, Mr. Chas. Adams, as best man, and Mr. Oliver Johnston, cousin of the bride, as groomsman. After the ceremony the parents of the bride received the guests at John I. Smith's refreshment rooms, where the wedding supper was served, and the customary toasts were honored. The mother of the bride wore navy blue crepe de chine relieved with white georgette and black hat to match. The happy couple left by car for Ballina, en route to Sydney for their honey moon. The bride travelled in a dress of navy blue crepe de chine, trimmed with mastic. The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a xylonite set, and her gift to him was a set of military brushes. Their future home will be at Woollongbar. Northern Star, Lismore, NSW, Monday, 10 January 1921|
