Obituary for Dennis Lee Adams

Dennis Lee  Adams
Dennis Lee Adams, age 74 of Janesville died on Wednesday, January 17, 2018 at Wm. S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital in Madison. He was born on October 26, 1943 in Dubuque, IA, the son of the late Howard and Violet (Oswald) Adams. Dennis attended school in Dubuque and served in the US Army from May 11, 1964, spending two years in Germany, until he was honorably discharged on April 21, 1967. Dennis later married Arolyn Lee Addyman on September 6, 1969 in Dubuque and together they had four children.
Dennis and Arolyn were dog breeders for many years, as well as boarding and grooming dogs. They operated kennels in several places over the years, settling in the Janesville area in 1981. Dennis was a meticulous wood crafter, specializing in miniature figurines. It was a talent that took extreme patience and precision. He sold his work at various craft fairs in the area. He also had a fondness for antique cars, especially the 1940’s and 1950’s era. Dennis’ hobbies include fishing, listening to music from the 1950’s and 1960’s, especially rock and roll, and collecting antiques and model cars.
Dennis was a very devoted husband, father and grandfather who loved his family dearly. He was a loving Papa to his four grandchildren, spoiling them as a great Papa should. He was a very organized planner, who processed every difficult task to minimize failure. He could at sometimes be stubborn, and set in his ways, but he was a loveable gentleman who will be missed by his family and friends.
He is survived by his wife of over 48 years: Arolyn; and his four children: Benjiman (Tonya Ramsey) Adams of Beloit, Donald (Katie) Adams of Janesville, Charlotte (Michael) Chapman of Janesville, and Anna (Jacob) Herbeck of Janesville; four grandchildren who he cherished: Logan, Lauren, Ian and Joey; and his Yorkie puppies: Maggie and Molly. He is further survived sister and brother-in-law: Donna and Jerry Jackson of DeWitt, IA and sister-in-law and her husband Cathie and Dan Avenarius of Dubuque, IA; nieces, nephews, and friends. He was predeceased by his parents and mother and father-in-law.
Funeral services will be held at 12:30 PM on Saturday, January 27, 2018 at the Whitcomb – Lynch Funeral Home, with Rev. Jerry Amstutz officiating. The VFW Kienow-Hilt Post 1621 will provide military honors. Visitation will be on Saturday from 10:30 AM until the time of the service at the funeral home.
