James Talmage Adamson
James Talmage Adamson met his Lord and Savior on Feb. 24, 2015. To those who knew him, the list of achievements listed below does not begin to touch the surface of the man he was. While his accomplishments were many, his heart is what had an impact on those he knew. Jim had a way of making everyone feel like "his favorite," and his love for the Lord, his family, and his friends is the legacy that he left behind.

Jim was born on Dec. 12, 1922, to William and Maude JohnsonAdamson of Chehalis, Washington. He graduated from Chehalis High School in 1940 and went on to attend Central Washington College of Education (C.W.U.), where he captained the varsity basketball team and was president of the student government. He earned his bachelor's degree in education from there in 1948 and his master's degree in 1955.

Jim served in the U.S. Army from 1942-1946 in the European Theater of Operations and was honorably discharged in 1946 as Chief of Firing Battery in the 65th Infantry Division Artillery.

For the majority of Jim's life, he was involved with sports and education. Jim was both a high school PE teacher and a multi-sport coach at Leavenworth High School and Moses Lake High School. He also served as principal of Peshastin Dryden High School before returning to Moses Lake where he served as Athletic Director and Director of Federal Programs until he retired in 1979.
