Mr. Adamson was one of my favorite teachers at K.C.C. His classes were interesting along with being informative. I enjoyed listening to his stories about his business experiences. It was an honor to know him. My condolences to his family.

I typically ran into Harry and Jeanni at Applebees often and no matter how he was feeling, he ALWAYS asked how I was doing and how my family was. He was such a caring man and had so many stories. We shared a lot of laughs and I will miss seeing him sitting next to Jeanni and helping us all give her a hard time. Prayers for you all as you celebrate the life of this wonderful man.

Harry was a wonderful instructor and loved by all his colleagues at Miller College. He took great interest in his students and his co-workers, always taking the time to ask about our families and sharing about his as well. My condolences to the loved ones left behind.
