Arthur Paul
Adams, 81
KENNEBUNKPORT -- Arthur Paul Adams, 81, of Oak Run, Kennebunkport, died on May 23, 2014, at Maine Medical Center.
Arthur was born on Dec. 6, 1932, in Milford, Mass., the son of Arthur C. and Edith (Tessicini) Adams.
A music lover, Arthur taught himself to play the saxophone and keyboard. He graduated from Franklin High School in 1950 and proudly served his country in the U.S. Army. Among his favorite accomplishments while in the Army were serving as a driver for the General and playing saxophone in the Army band. After his service, Arthur earned his Associate degree from Bentley College in Accounting.
An avid sports fan, he played baseball and football in high school and college. After graduating from college, he was a bank manager at Medway Savings Bank. After retiring from the bank, he worked for 18 summers at the front desk of the Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport.
Arthur enjoyed traveling with his long-time partner Ellie, and loved to walk the beaches of Maine and Florida. He had a beautiful voice and was the lead singer of his band 'Sun' for many years. He sang with a choir in Florida in his later years. His 'Sun' bandmates were among his closest friends, as was Ralph DeLucia, his dearest friend since childhood. He and Ellie enjoyed live theater and served as ushers at Biddeford City Theater. He followed the Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays baseball teams.
Arthur was predeceased by his infant daughter, Dawn Kelly Adams; and brother, David J. Adams. He is remembered and greatly missed by his longtime friend and companion, Eleanor Thompson. He is survived by his son Jordan Adams and wife Corinne of Tampa, Fla., and their children, Hailey and Parker; and his daughter Meredith Adams Shephard of Foxborough, Mass., and her son, Timothy.
