  • Charles Edward Adams, “Bo,” age 66, of McKoons Road, passed away peacefully on Saturday evening, March 2, 2013, in Bassett Medical Center, Cooperstown. He had the comfort of his loving family at his side.
    He was born on Oct. 24, 1946, in Herkimer, son of the late Charles E. and Harriett Orendorf Adams. A lifelong area resident, he was raised and educated in Herkimer.
    On Jan. 8, 1972, he was united in marriage with the former Patricia Eaker in Little Falls. They made their home in Herkimer and in 1973 moved to the town of Columbia where they have resided since.
    For forty years, Mr. Adams had owned and operated Bo’s Roofing and Siding in the town of Columbia. He retired from the business in 2010.
    Bo had a strong love for the outdoors. In his leisure you could always find him hunting, fishing, snowmobiling or riding his four-wheel ATV. He also had a special place in his heart for dogs and horses. To all who knew him, they will never forget his down to earth manner. Any conversation with him was straight and to the point, yet you always felt a warmth and friendship whenever you were with him. He will be greatly missed by his many friends and family.
    He is survived by his devoted wife of forty-one years, Patricia; two daughters, Julie Grogan, of Mohawk, and Robin DiRienzo and her husband, John, of Ilion; two sisters, Jean Jacopelle, of Herkimer, and Jane Talarico and her husband, John, of Mohawk; several grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins; along with two very special friends, Norman Lynch and Dan Davis. Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by a son, Max Grogan, in 1999.
    Calling hours for Bo will be on Friday from 3 until 5 p.m. in Fenner Funeral Home, Inc., 115 Court St., Herkimer. A funeral service will follow immediately after at 5 p.m. with Jim Cogar, close family friend, officiating.
    Expressions of sympathy may be made with memorial donations to the Herkimer County Humane Society. Envelopes will be available at the funeral home.
