Randall Joseph "Randy Joe" Adams

December 1, 1952 ~ July 22, 2022 (age 69)


Randall Joseph “Randy Joe” Adams of Lynch, Kentucky, entered eternal life on Friday, July 22, 2022, after a long illness.  He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, John Henry and Mary Adams, maternal grandparents, Sabatino and Rosa Marsili, parents, Woodrow and Virginia Adams.

Randy is survived by his wife, Janel Adams, children, Jason (Kelli) Adams of Baxter, Kentucky, Kelly Adams of Wise, Virginia, Eric (Melonie) Quisenberry of Knoxville, Tennessee, Lauren (Tory) Arney of Louisville, Kentucky, Brandy, Randi Jo, Cydnee and Mia Adams all of Lynch, Kentucky, seven grandchildren, one great grandchild,  brother, John (Linda) Adams,  sister, Anna (Tim) Carruba all of Lynch, Kentucky, a host of relatives, friends and his loyal dog, “Bo”.

Randy was a lifelong resident of Lynch and a 1970 graduate of Lynch High School.  He was a member of the 1968 Kentucky Class A State Football Championship team under Coach Ed Miracle and played taps for military veteran funerals.  He was employed by U.S. Steel, a field representative for United States Steel Workers, and later as a medical lab technician in Wise, Virginia before his retirement. 

Randy Joe was a fantastic and loyal friend.  If you needed something and he could help, he was always there.  He would give you the shirt off his back, if needed.   He had a wonderful sense of humor, always telling jokes and making people laugh.  He loved to cook, ride his motorcycle, play golf and was an avid Green Bay Packers fan.  He enjoyed the annual L.I.T. Golf Tournament.  He would find a nice, cool spot after a round or two of golf and share his life stories, making it the most memorable experience for many visiting.    Randy Joe had a lot of talents, one being a phenomenal musician and vocalist.  He was a member of several bands, called “Bread and Butter” and “Highway 119”.   He loved to perform at various festivals and venues all over.  He always gave a great performance and always had a bright smile that warmed your heart. 
Even though Randy Joe had multiple things he enjoyed, none could ever compare to the love he had for his family.  He loved them all with every fiber of his being.  Randy Joe was a strong man that encouraged his children and grandchildren to be the best version of themselves.  Our community has lost another fine man, but his memory shall carry on forever and he will remain in our hearts.



Randy requested cremation and that his ashes be scattered at the Lynch Country Club.
