George Adams of Lancaster, NH, passed away at the Morrison after a short illness on April 12, 2022. He was born September 2, 1928, in Boston, MA, the son of George C. and Elizabeth Covel of Boston. He received his GED certificate from Massachusetts Education Department in 1952. He married Shirley Whipple in 1957, and they celebrated their sixtieth anniversary in 2017. George was employed by the DuPont Company in Wilmington, DE, for twenty-plus years, after which they retired to Dallas Plantation, Rangeley, ME, in 1988.

They became a part of the Rangeley Community in many ways. He was the photographer at the EcoVenture youth program sponsored by the Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust for ten years. He was known for his landscape photography, and in 2012 he self-published a Rangeley photo essay book that he called his one claim to fame. He also provided an annual nature calendar for ten years, which contained Rangeley’s pristine landscape scenes. Besides the school children and the EcoVenture effort, his favorite interest was using his camera on the wildlife and land around his favorite locations.
