Carl Harrison ADAMSON passed away on July 1, 2022, at home surrounded by his loved ones after a long battle with cancer.

Carl was born November 1, 1941, in Lurray, MO at home to Neva Lucille ADAMSON (McCARTY) and James Franklin ADAMSON. He had two sisters, Mary ADAMSON (DIETERICH) husband Norman and Jeannie ADAMSON (RAY) husband Larry; and one brother, Larry ADAMSON (wife Nancy).

Carl married Janet HICKENBOTTOM on December 24, 1962, and they enjoyed a long and hapy marriage of almost 60 years.

Carl loved hunting with his grandsons and sons-in-law. Deer hunting was a time for him to really enjoy getting together with all of his boys. He also loved fishing, camping and enjoying the woods outside of his home with all of his family and spending time with his wife and other family members. Carl worked as a woodsman early in his career, and owned his own backhoe business Adamson Excavating for 40 years, later adding a garage door business (C & J Doors). He and his wife Janet ran both businesses for many years. Carl and Janet retired in 2011 and moved to their river property where they spent many hours in the woods enjoying nature, cutting trees and camping on the river with family and friends.

Carl and Janet had three daughters, Lori ADAMSON (WAGNER) married to Dan WAGNER of Dubuque, Kim ADAMSON (SNYDER) married to Jon SNYDER of Colfax, and Carla ADAMSON, married to Clayton CUBBAGE of Cedar Rapids.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his in-laws Beverly CATHEY (HICKENBOTTOM) and Donald HICKENBOTTOM, brothers-in-law Dick and Doug HICKENBOTTOM, brother-in-law Larry RAY, sister and brother-in-law Mary and Norman DIETERICH.
