Scott L. Adams, Sr. July 10, 1957 - June 12, 2024

Scott L. Adams, Sr, 66, of Allentown passed away Wednesday, June 12, 2024, at Lehigh Valley Hospital surrounded by his loving family.  Born in 1957, he was the son of Anita (Roeder) Adams and the late Raymond F.L. Adams III.  He was the loving husband to Joanne K. (Hamersly) Adams, with whom he shared 46 years of marriage.  Scott worked as a mechanic for the city of Allentown for over 20 years before his retirement.   He also was the owner and operator of Adams’ Salads in the Allentown Fairgrounds Market since 1992, and it is still owned and operated by family today.  Scott was a member of Hogan’s Social Club, East Allen Fire Co., Cetronia Fire Co., Woodlawn Fire Co., and the Mercantile Club.  He also enjoyed visiting Ringer’s Roost and the Kuhnsville Hotel.  Scott loved socializing and always enjoyed sharing a beer with his friends whenever he had the opportunity.  So much so that he was known by many as “Mr. Miller Lite of the Lehigh Valley.”  He also loved spending time with his family, particularly their vacations to Wildwood.

In addition to his wife Joanne, Scott is survived by his children, Scott L. Adams, Jr. (Trish), Michael Adams (Amanda), brothers, Raymond F.L. Adams IV, Mark Adams, and David Adams, grandchildren Scott III, Kyle, Connor, Carson, and Olivia.

A viewing will be held on Monday, June 17, 2024, at Stephens Funeral Home, 274 N. Krocks Rd.
