Michael G. Adams, 70, passed away on June 28, 2013 at his home on Seymour Lake in Morgan, VT. Michael was born on February 19, 1943 in Burlington, VT to George “Ted” and Nadean (Ellsworth) Adams. Michael grew up in Stowe, VT and graduated from Stowe High School in 1961. After graduation Michael worked with his family at the Adams Mill in Moscow. He went on to career in construction and built many houses in the Stowe area. Michael’s taxidermy hobby grew into Wildstuff Taxidermy. Throughout the years Mike won numerous taxidermy awards and taught many students the taxidermy trade. Upon retirement Mike and his wife owned and operated Stowe Kennel Kare in Moscow, VT.
Michael was the epitome of a Vermonter! Michael loved hunting, fishing and most recently cooking. He enjoyed spending time with his family, especially watching his grandchildren enjoy Seymour Lake. Michael was known for his tall tales and sense of humor. He is survived by Linda his loving wife of 40 years; his daughters Paige Howard and her husband Greg of Florence, MA; Stacey Schaaf and her husband Bill of Hyde Park, VT and Jill Manca and her husband Tony of Easthampton, MA; his sister Susan Adams of Johnson, VT and her husband Larry; his grandchildren Sydney, Jocelyn, Owen, Tanya, Izabella and Lundon; and his nieces and nephews and many other relatives.
Michael was preceded in death by his parents Ted and Nadean Adams; his son Alfred Adams. Out of respect for Michael’s wishes not to have a funeral, friends and family will gather to celebrate his life at a later date, yet to be determined.
