Floyd B. and Bobby J. Adams

On this date the 24th of June in 1929, our father, Floyd Dees half brother, Bobby J. Adams was born in Oklahoma to parents Floyd Brazier (Papaw) Adams and Johnny Adams.

He was the first born of our Papaw Adams from his first marriage. Bobby grew up in Drumwright, Oklahoma with his mother Johnny, but kept in touch with his Louisiana siblings over the years.

It’s amazing how much our Papaw Adams and Uncle Bob look alike.
