Submitted by Newton County Constable (4) Howie M Wonders
It is with a heavy heart that I report Newton County Pct 4 Constable’s Office Sergeant Mike Adams passed away today.
Sergeant Adams was last heard from Saturday and was attempting to retrieve his boat that, while using the day before, became stuck when it drifted into several logs lying beneath the waters of the Sabine River. After not hearing from him for quite some time, a friend went to check on him and discovered him deceased in bed inside the RV he stayed in the night before.
Sergeant Adams was an intelligent young officer that was never afraid to ask “why”? He had a sincere thirst for knowledge especially when that knowledge pertained to his law enforcement career.
Although he had only recently been hired on with our office, he served almost 4 years total as a peace officer. Law enforcement was his passion but Mike was somewhat of a jack of all trades.
He was an avid outdoorsman and could almost always correctly diagnose why your vehicle was acting up. Mike was just a good man. He was there if you needed him and would give a stranger the shirt off his back.
I’d like to ask all of you to please keep his family in your prayers.
Funeral arrangements will be posted as soon I am informed of the date and times.
Sergeant Adams, you will truly be missed.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
