Good­bye Alf Adams

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

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.
