John (Cowboy) Albert Adams, 80, of Kremmling, Colorado, died Wednesday, April 28, 2021.
Cowboy was born at home on the farm in Olton, Texas on August 20, 1940. He has been a longtime resident of Kremmling, Colorado, which fulfilled his dream of living a “quiet” life in a mountain town. Cowboy retired from Henderson Mill after twenty-eight years. Cowboy’s hobbies was shoeing horses, wrangling grandchildren, training horses and working on ranches. (Cowboy was not a farrier; he was a horse shoer. He didn’t hesitate to explain the difference between the two. His forge was the cigarette lighter in his pocket). Cowboy was very out going and no one was a stranger to him, which is how he massed a network of friends that ran far and wide. Cowboy’s trademark was to give you nickname, whether you liked it or not.
Survivors includes two older sisters , Delane Blondeau of Portal, Arizona, and Juanda “Tucum” Crawford of Alvin, Texas; one son, Sonny “Griz” (Terri) Adams of Craig, Colorado; and three daughters, Nona “Houch” (Larry) Pulliam of Grand Junction, Colorado; Sharmon “ Homer” (the Curtis) Daley of Abilene, Texas; and Jackie “Hoot” Adams of Kremmling, Colorado; five grandchildren, ten great grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews, five horses, and an old dog “Beauty”.
The family is planning a memorial service on Saturday, August 7, 2021 at the town park in Kremmling, Colorado. Further details will be forth coming. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch
