Services for Mr. Adair are private and will be announced at a later date. Arrangements will be provided by The Ripley Funeral Home.
Mr. Adair was born on July 31, 1949 to the late Wesley Thomas and Frances Dye Adair and received his education in the New Albany Public School System. A proud United States Veteran, he was a doorgunner for the US Army and was employed as a truck driver for 25 years before retiring.
A Christian, Mr. Adair enjoyed walks with his dogs, hunting, "piddling" in the yard, watching television, naps and sitting on his porch. He will be remembered for his stubbornness yet genuine heart. He will be greatly missed by many.
Survivors include his beloved wife of over 47 years, Barbara Adair of Ripley, one son, Christopher Adair of New Albany, two sisters, Deborah Nielsen (Pete) of Pontotoc, Ollie Cobb (Bobby) of Randolph and one brother, Samuel Neal Adair (Betty) of IL.
