Larry L Adams Il aka Little Larry left a message on September 21, 2019:
A sad day for a kind soul. Strother took me and my Brother at an early age to teach us what it means to be a good men. He taught us to be tough in challenging times and kind to those who where less fortunate in life. That message echo all my life as well as my philanthropy. I followed Strother in sports wrestling as District Champion, went into the Army and later Shepherd Football with the great coach Walter Barr. Although in time we drifted apart as old friends and family do in life my memories of his motivations and don’t quit Larry unless it is on your terms became my moral compass. Someone told me once that I would never go to college and Strother said don’t listen to them believe in yourself. After graduating from Harvard and later becoming a professor at Shepherd and Harvard University I contribute it my uncle don’t quit attitude. Susie and the girls have always been the kindness ladies I ever knew and will always be in my prayers. It is rare for a poor kid to get out of poverty but Strother lead the way for me and my Brother to follow. Forever grateful and we will join the great team in heaven one day. Say hi to Grandma and mom! ❤️

Uncle Strother, what can I say? You were very instrumental in my life! You taught me to measure twice and cut once. How to drive a 16-penny nail into a 2x4. How to work hard and play hard all those summers. Your character, work ethic, and inspiration cannot be replaced and will be always cherished. I will miss you very much! Love, Chris
