Obituary for Norman R. Adamson Sr.

Norman R. Adamson Sr.

I entered this world on March 21, 1937 born to Morris Adamson and Nobie L. Johnson-Adamson, in Center Point, Arkansas. I grew up in a home with three sisters, Joyce, Deloris, Janice, and an aunt that my mother raised as my sister, Katie. There was another sister that died as an infant. My home was a Christian home, my father was a minister. I became a Christian at an early age and worked in the church.
After I graduated high school, I continued my education by taking the road to Terrell, Texas to attend South Western Christian College. Upon completing my studies there, I took another road to Chicago, Illinois to look for work and to continue my education. I received my Master’s Degree from Governors State University. I worked with the Michigan Avenue Church of Christ and later became assistant minister to the late Levi Kennedy. It was at this congregation that I met and married Helen J. Bond. We have been together for 53 years and are the parents of four children: Norman, Jr., Darryl, Dion and Tracy. We have six grandchildren.
My road led me to work for the Social Security Administration for a while, later to the United States Postal Service, where I stayed until my retirement. That road took me from Chicago, Illinois to: Bethesda, MD., Memphis, TN., Tyler, Texas, Washington, D.C., Waco, Texas, Macon, GA., and finally retirement, which brought me back “full circle” to Center Point, Arkansas where I started.
Upon my arrival back to Center Point, my wife and I cared for my mother who was ill. I worked with the church as I had always done everywhere I lived. As time passed, I took the job as minister at the Dodson Street Church of Christ and established the Dodson Street Family Life Center which provided tutoring and guidance for local children needing help with studies and life skills.
Another road I traveled lead me to write articles for the “Nashville News”. I also taught classes at Cossatot Community College, Nashville campus. I was a CASA) court appointed special advocate) representative. I was a board member of the Arkansas State Board of Private Careers. I served on the Howard County Democratic Committee, Kiwanis, Southwest Arkansas Development Council and the Center Point Renewal orginazition. I also served on the Literacy Council, and was Chaplin at Tyson Foods, Inc. In 1994 I was chosen Man of The Year by the Nashville Arkansas Chamber of Commerce.
Gone before me are my parents, Morris and Nobie Adamson, three sisters, Joyce Boler, Deloris Wesson, and Hortence Adamson and a number of relatives.
I leave to travel on, my wife of 53 years, Helen. Two sisters, Janice Marshall (John) and Katie Dedner. I leave my children, Norman, Jr. (Arletha), Darryl, Dion (Natasha), Tracy (Dakari). I also leave my Grandchildren, Brandon (Allyssa), and Sabrina, Christian, Mellissa, Caesar and Jules as well as a host of nieces, nephews and other family members and friends.
The time span between my birth and demise was filled with roads I traveled. I walked as straight as I possibly could, striving to leave an everlasting example.
NOW I AM TRAVELING ON A “NEW ROAD” THAT HAS NO END. NO HILLS, NO CURVES, NO BUMPS, NO POT HOLES, NO DETOURS AND IS SMOOTHLY PAVED…PLENTY OF LIGHT, NEVER DARK.
