In Loving Memory of Sammy Lee Adams


Sammy Lee Adams, a dedicated Line Driver at Yellow Freight Trucking for 25 exemplary years, has left an indelible mark on the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know him. With profound sadness, we announce his peaceful passing, after a life well-lived, on December 31, 2023, in Bosque Farms, NM.

Born on February 19, 1938, in Raton, NM, Sammy was a true testament to hard work and perseverance. He obtained his High School Diploma and embarked on a successful career as a Line Driver, a role in which he excelled as a result of his unwavering commitment and strong work ethic. Sammy dedicated countless hours on the open road, ensuring that the wheels of commerce kept turning.

Passionate about his faith, Sammy was a cherished member of the First Baptist Church of Bosque Farms, where he found solace and community. He found great joy in connecting with others and sharing stories of his adventures on the road and his love for the outdoors. Sammy's true passion lay in hauling hay and working with his beloved cattle, potatoes, and feed. A true master builder, he used his time off to construct a beautiful house in Folsom, NM, showcasing his creativity and attention to detail.

Sammy's legacy extends beyond his professional achievements and hobbies. He was a devoted family man, survived by his children, Jimmy Adams, Tammy Adams, Jeanne Adams and his step-children Lisa Smith and Billy Guthrie. His presence will forever be cherished by his brother, Vernie Adams, and brother-in-law, Larry Cox. Generations to come will remember Sammy through his beloved grandchildren: Alec Lillard, Jennifer Miller, and his step-grandchildren: Jacob Smith, Noah Smith, Khrystle Dual, and Royal Watson. His legacy will further be carried on by his great-grandchildren: Lyla Miller, Olivia Merila, Mary Dual, and Ariel Dual.

To honor Sammy's remarkable life, a Memorial Service on January 13, 2024, at 2:00 pm, held at the First Baptist Church of Bosque Farms. Together, we will share cherished memories and bask in the warmth of Sammy's vibrant spirit.

We, the family, celebrate and remember Sammy Lee Adams for his unwavering dedication, strong character, and everlasting love. May his journey onward be as rewarding as his time spent with us. Though he is no longer physically present, his spirit will forever reside in our hearts.
