Adam V. Duhl, age 73, of Jackson, Ohio, passed away on Tuesday, Dec. 19, 2017 at Riverside Hospital, Columbus, Ohio after suffering a stroke. He was born on Jan. 7, 1944 in Jackson, Ohio, the son of Frank and Cora (Linton) Duhl. He was a life-long resident of Jackson.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, John, Charles, George and Delbert Duhl; sister, Ann Barnett; half-sister, Marie Runyan; niece, Betty Cundy; and nephews, Floyd Baker Jr. and Mark Johnson.
He is survived by his sister, Ruby Johnson; brother, James Duhl; nieces, Mary Baker and Patty Miller; nephews, John Cundy and Ronnie Johnson Jr.; several great-nieces, great-nephews and many other family members and friends.
Adam enjoyed being outdoors working in his yard or sitting on his porch enjoying a cup of coffee and watching traffic drive past. His greatest joy was the younger members of the family. Whenever they were around, you would always hear laughter and know that Adam was right in the middle of the kids having a good time. As much as he loved them, he was loved just as much in return. He was well-known as a hard worker and a caring man. He worked for many years at Fairmount Cemetery in Jackson, Ohio until he retired. He took great pride in his work and put a lot of love into it.
Adam had a strong sense of love and respect for family and friends. He was known to say he felt he should treat every resting place as if they were family because the departed were to be taken good care of and visiting family deserved to know their loved ones were cared for. He may not always have had a lot to say but by his actions, he showed he was a man to be admired. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Funeral services will be held at the Mayhew-Brown Funeral Home Tuesday, Dec. 26, at 1 p.m. Friends will be received two hours prior to the service on Tuesday from 11 a.m.to 1 p.m. Burial will follow in the Evergreen Cemetery. Condolences may be sent to www.mayhew-brownfuneralhome.com
