April 28, 1939 - March 28, 2019

Rev. Osmon (Oz) Wallace Adams went home to be with our Lord March 28, 2019.
He had battled respiratory disease for the last several years with grace and dignity. His beautiful smile and positive disposition was a continual blessing to all who came in contact with him. He was a dearly loved son, husband, father, grandfather and friend. He gave his heart to Jesus Christ and his life to knowing Him and making Him known. He had a humble, servant's heart and lived to love and give to others.

Oz was raised in Valley, Alabama and lived most of his adult years in the Atlanta, Georgia area. He served his country as a member of the United States Army from 1963-1965 and as a City of Atlanta Police Officer from 1961-1986. He was ordained as a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in 1985.

Following his retirement from the City of Atlanta Police Department with the rank of Lieutenant, Oz remained an active public servant in various outreach ministries, a church start and directing security provisions for U.S. Federal and various private properties in Atlanta. Following retirement from these endeavors, Oz and
his wife retired to their peaceful, country home in Heflin, Alabama.

He was preceded in death by his mother Montez Sessions Crowder and his father Osmon Adams, and his beloved wife Marianna Adams. He leaves behind his daughter Carmen Hollingsworth, son-in-law David Hollingsworth and grandsons Grant and Ross Hollingsworth of Peachtree City, GA.

A Celebration of Life service will be held Sunday, April 14, 2019 at 2:00 pm, at Pine Grove Baptist Church located in Heflin, Alabama. Details can be found on the website for Dryden Funeral Home, Heflin, Alabama.

Memorials can be made to Disabled American Veterans or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. These are the two organizations that he supported regularly.

Oz leaves behind a legacy of faith, love and hope as he is more alive today than he has ever been!

Carman, I am so sorry for your loss. O. W. (Osmon), and I are first cousins. Montez Sessions Crowder, and my mother Lavenia Sessions Hughey were sisters. I remember O. W. quite well. He, and Aunt Montez (We called her Aunt Skinny) lived with us for awhile when I was small. Again, I am so sorry for the loss of your father.

I am Osmon's first cousin. To all his kin he was called O.W. He was named Osmon after his Dad and Wallace after his mother's favorite brother. We grew up together until I was 16 and left home for Nursing School then our lives rarely crossed paths. We kept in touch through funerals and a family reunion. When your Mom went to Glory he and I swapped email addresses. We kept in touch by email when he was in and out of the hospital. We both love Jesus with all our heart and that tied us together more than being first cousins. I am glad he has GONE HOME. We will see each other again in the future in a better place. Please don't weep to much for your loss but weep for this sinful world you and I are left in.
God bless You,
Yvonne Sessions Sledge

Brother Oz Adams was one of the nicest men I know. Of all the jobs I have had in my life time, working with him as a handyman's assistant was my favorite. I hired him to renovate my mother's kitchen and he didn't have a helper, so I stepped. in, and after the kitchen was finished, he hired me to help with different jobs. I loved our devotions, that we would share during lunch. A God fearing man, and servant to the Lord, in all things. Thanks for the memories Brother Oz, go rest in the Lord with your sweet wife, Marianna. (Linda Clark)
