Chris Andrew Adolf
Yakima Herald - Republic, Sep 21, 2007
February 25,1961 to September 19, 2007

RICHLAND, WA - Wednesday evening, Chris Andrew Adolf, 46 of Hermiston, Oregon left us to be with his father in heaven. Eight days after suffering a massive stroke he passed away at Kadlec Medical Center in Richland.

Chris was born in Prosser, Washington to Betty and Dale Adolf. He grew up the youngest of five children, graduating from Prosser High School in 1979.

Chris was a simple man who loved life. His favorite place was the mountains, especially the family cabin. He enjoyed trout fishing, pheasant hunting with his bird dog Maggie, hunting morel mushrooms and wood cutting. Chris gave his family and friends many good memories. For 22 years Chris helped Alan Cleaver farm. Alan was like his second dad and farming was Chris's life, fulfilling his desire to work out of doors.

Chris was preceded in death by his father Dale and nephew, Donnie Evans. Survivors include his sons, Tyler and Brandon of Hermiston, Oregon; his mother, Betty Adolf of Prosser, Washington; siblings, Karen Dorsey (Lynn) of Lawrenceville, New Jersey, Diana Veley (Dave) of Yakima, Washington, Ron Adolf (Georgia) of Kent, Washington; Laura Evans (Don) of Prosser, Washington; and numerous nieces and nephews and extended family and friends, including the Hermiston wrestling team.

We will all miss Chris's great sense of humor and fun loving ways, especially his imitation of the Rainbird sprinkler.

A funeral service will be held at 2:00 PM on Monday, September 24, 2007 at the Messiah Lutheran Church in Prosser. Visitation is scheduled for Sunday, September 23 from 10:00 AM until 2:30 PM at Prosser Funeral Home.
