Obituary for Leon Francis Adams

Leon Francis Adams was born September 5, 1932 in Washington, DC to the late Peter Lee Adams and Rosa Mack Adams.  Leon was the youngest of thirteen children and he was affectionally known as “Step” by his family and close friends.  He was educated in the District of Columbia Public School system, prior to serving in the United States Army.  In January 1987, he married Margeart Fogle and the Lord blessed their union with 32 years of holy matrimony.  He retired from the Federal Government in December 1996 but he continued to drive Margeart to work daily for the next 10 years.  Once she retired in August 2006, he said with a smile “Now I am going into full retirement”. 

Throughout his childhood, Leon grew to love Cadillac cars and he ultimately became an avid pool player.  He worked for the Government Printing Office and General Services Administration for a total of 26 years before relocating to Dunn, NC in 2006.  Leon was a faithful member of Enon Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Reverend Tommy Lee Shaw in Washington, DC.  Once he relocated to Dunn, NC, he and Margeart were members of Gospel Tabernacle before joining Stoney Run Pentecostal Free Will Baptist Church, which is where he was a member at the time of his death.  Leon was known for his impeccable style of dressing, his love for western movies, arts, painting and working outdoors beautifying most anything.  Through these hobbies, he developed an appreciation for the finer things in life.  In fact, when he would discover something new and exciting, he would quickly say “that’s the natural truth” – a saying that many others would come to repeat back to him.  Leon was a quiet man and he enjoyed the company of his wife and would stop at nothing to make sure she was well taken care of.  

On Sunday, September 15, 2019, Leon Francis Adams entered peacefully into eternal rest.  His life will forever be cherished by his wife, Margeart Adams, two daughters: LeJuane (Jesse) Robinson and Ivy Adams-Perkins; one step son: Andrew Fogle; seven grandchildren: Kelvin (LaShawn) Green, Marlon (LaKeisha) Green, Kalilah Perkins, Andrew Fogle, Jr, Darryl (Shana) Edwards, Krystal Edwards, Maurice Berryman; six great grand-children; two great-great grandchildren; one surviving sister: Alberta Stowe (FL); one sister-in-law: Eartharene Prophet; two brothers-in-law: Larry (Shirley) Prezzy and Mervin Prezzy; two special friends: Alton Hobbs and James Lee; Liberty Home Care and Selma Washington.

Leon Francis Adams will be dearly missed by his loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and a host of other relatives and friends.
