J.W. Adams, Jr., 75, of Brooklyn, passed away January 8, 2022 at Henry Ford Allegiance Hospital. Jay’s family and friends held a private visitation and service at Eineder Funeral Homes – Brooklyn Chapel with Pastor Tim Flickinger of Jackson Free Methodist Church presiding. Jay was born on June 17, 1946, in Paducah, Kentucky to J.W. and Mary (Beasley) Adams. Jay married the love of his life, Janet Nemetz, on June 26, 1964, in Jackson, Michigan. He will be remembered as a loving husband and father who was the friendliest guy in the neighborhood. Jay never knew a stranger and would wave at everyone who went by so no one would feel excluded. He woke up everyday looking for any opportunity to help others. Jay loved watching and participating with his children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events. He coached girls’ basketball at his alma mater, E. Jackson High School, in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. Jay never wanted to miss a game, travelling across the country to watch his grandchildren compete in hockey and softball games. He and Janet recently began attending Jackson Free Methodist Church. Jay will be deeply missed by his wife, Janet; his children, Nianne (Shon) Prendel of Brooklyn; Cindy (Domenick) Forgione of Clarklake; and Eric Adams of Michigan Center; his mother, Mary Adams of Jackson; siblings, Jean (Bill) Taylor of Jackson; Carol (Terry) Goldsmith of Jackson; and Gary (Fran) Adams of Brooklyn; grandchildren Kelsie (Chad) Griswold of Brooklyn; and Kyle Prendel of Brooklyn; great grandchildren Grace Griswold and Maizie Griswold; his “grand-dog” Bauer; and several nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his father, J.W. Adams Sr., and sister, Sandi Adams. Please leave a message of comfort for Jay’s family or sign his guestbook at www.EinederFuneralHomes.com.
