James “Jim” Evan Adams, Sr., 78, of Cascade, Montana, succumbed to the Covid-19 virus on November 1, 2020. He was the son of Fred Adams and Ruby Johnston and was born in Fort Peck, Montana on January 16, 1942.

Jim married Judy Kay Taylor in 1964, and their loving union produced three sons, Jim, Jr. (Devany) of Plain City, Utah, John (Kristi) of Helena, Montana, and Jason (Ana) of Layton, Utah.

He had several careers in his life. After serving in the US Navy, he worked for the Burlington Northern Railroad as a brakeman, and then later, he made a career with the Federal Aviation Administration as an air traffic controller. He concluded his working years as a bus driver for the Cascade School District, a job he very much enjoyed while cherishing his little passengers.

Jim was a consummate craftsman who had many hobbies and was never afraid to try something new. He thoroughly enjoyed working with his hands and cussing when he hammered a finger.
