Kenneth N. Adams

August 4, 1932 — April 15, 2024

Palatine

Visitation for Kenneth N. Adams, 91, formerly of Palatine, will be held from 9:00 a.m. until the time of the Funeral Service at 12 Noon, Monday, April 22, 2024, at the Ahlgrim Family Funeral Home, 201 N. Northwest Hwy., Palatine, IL. The Interment will follow at St. Michael the Archangel Cemetery, Palatine.

Ken was born on August 4, 1932, in Brooklyn, N.Y., the son of the late James J. and Eilleen (née Kirby), and passed away Monday, April 15, 2024.

He was the beloved husband of the late, Irene (née Tuttle); loving father of Kenneth (Laura), Brian (Jan), Dana (Amy), and Rosemary; cherished grandfather of Vincent; dear brother of the late Robert; fond uncle, cousin, friend, and neighbor to many.

Ken attended Fordham Prep and later graduated from Fordham University, where he met Irene on a blind date. He served with the Army’s 101st Airborne Division. While his military and business careers took him to many different places over the years, he remained a New Yorker at heart. Ken’s sense of humor, love for reading, movies, and storytelling, and his ongoing interest in current events—all shared in his booming Brooklyn accent--made him a lively and interesting companion.

In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated to the Little Sisters of the Poor, St. Joseph’s Home for the Elderly, Palatine.
