Gordon A. Adams, 72, died Saturday, April 22, 2023 at his home after a lengthy illness. Born in Franklin, March 30, 1951, he was the only child of Nelson and Fay (King) Adams. Gordon grew up on the grounds of Camp Pasquaney and eventually assumed the duties of groundskeeper, only moving off campus when he retired. He was a 1969 graduate of Bristol High School. Quiet natured, Gordon kept a small but intimate group of friends who were open to his great sense of sarcastic humor. He had an appreciation for old cars and a love of motorcycles and of his kitties.
