Goodbye Alf Adams
Barely a week after he celebrated his 73rd wedding anniversary on March 28, Alf Adams has died.
Last month we ran a story about Alf and his wife Ruth, who lived together at Longview Rest Home.
The 98- year- old died on April 10.
After meeting at church in Auckland, their marriage had a rocky start, with Alf shipping out to serve in World War II just days after they tied the knot in 1942.
The couple lived in Brooklyn after the war before moving to Linden and then Tawa.
The pair have two sons, eight grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
