David Adamson (Plainview)

David Earl Adamson passed away peacefully at home August 5, 2021. His services will be held at 3:00 P.M. Monday, August 9, 2021 at First Presbyterian Church in Plainview. Burial will follow in Plainview Memorial Park under the care of Kornerstone Funeral Directors. A visitation will be held from 4:00 to 6:00 P.M. Sunday, August 8, 2021 at the funeral home. He was born the second son of Thomas Joe and Francis Jeanette Simpson Adamson on January 6, 1968 in Amarillo, Texas. David is survived by his wife Elise; children, Brian, Kevin and wife Jaimie, Parker; his parents Tom and Francis Adamson; twin grandsons, Theo and Liam; and brother, DeWayne. His son, Mark preceded him in 1996. David grew up on the family farm near Shamrock, Texas, graduating high school in 1986, after a high school career throwing the shot put and discus and playing basketball. David found a new passion in physics at McMurry College. After completing his Bachelor of Science Degree in Physics in only three years, he went on to graduate school at Texas Tech, where he met the love of his life, Elise Boerwinkle. They were married on May 11, 1990. While living in Lubbock, their firstborn son Brian was born, then the family moved to Plainview in 1993. His sons, Mark, Kevin and Parker followed in the next few years. By 1994, David started teaching at Plainview High School, where he remained for the rest of his career, until he retired on disability in 2006. The most important things in David’s life were God and family, and his most important job was being a husband, father and son. His life revolved around events with the kids, especially Cub Scouts, and teaching at school and teaching Sunday School. He also served the community on the Child Welfare Board for Hale County, serving as President until his health would not allow. He was honored as Volunteer of the Year for this service. To become a better physics teacher, he participated in Quarknet, a program to expose high school physics teachers to actual particle physics research. Through this program, David became a mentor teacher, and visited Fermilab in Chicago, and attended a national physics conference in Philadelphia. He even got to spend a couple weeks in Switzerland and France at CERN, where he helped install fiber optic cable in the Very Forward Calorimeter of Large Hadron Collider. David and his family have been supported for many years by the church family at First Presbyterian Church, their friends and family, and the Wayland Baptist University family, allowing Elise flexibility in caring for David. They have also received education and emotional support about his condition, primary immune deficiency, through the Immune Deficiency Foundation. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be sent to The David and Elise Adamson Endowed Scholarship at Wayland Baptist University, 1900 W. 7th Street, Plainview, TX 79072, First Presbyterian Church, 2101 Utica, Plainview, TX 79072, or the Immune Deficiency Foundation, 110 West Rd. #300, Towson, MD 21204.
