Dean Adams, 64, of Sour Lake, passed away on Sunday, July 3, 2022, at Christus Southeast Texas – St. Elizabeth, Beaumont. He was born on June 20, 1958, to Sherry and Ronnie Adams, in Beaumont, Texas. Dean worked for Entergy for 40 years and was the Senior Grid Manager of Transmission, before retiring in 2019. After retiring, he joined the retirement fleet at Reneau Farms driving trucks and tractors. He was an Eagle Scout and loved spending his free time at the Masonic Lodge in Sour Lake, Texas. He loved visiting the Hill Country and hunting with his son, Jesse, and his family in Llano, Texas. Dean loved his nieces and nephews as his own children and he never missed an opportunity to be with his great-nieces and great-nephews, because he loved them with every beat of his heart.
Even though he didn’t have a brother, Dean considered Robert Minick his brother. They started working together at Bill’s Travel Trailers. They spent time fishing, golfing, playing tennis, and having an occasional (or frequent) glass of wine, along with his sister, Lynda Minick.
