Robert Adams, Jr., also known as “Lap Louisiana Lighting”, 84, was born September 5, 1939, in Sunset, Louisiana, to the late Robert and Mable Smith Adams. He was a native of Sunset, Louisiana, and lived in the Westlake and Mossville area most of his life before moving to the Moss Bluff, Lake Charles area. Robert lived in the Moss Bluff area for fifteen years before relocating to Montgomery, Alabama, where he resided with his daughter and grandson (Ramona and Amory) for the last three years.
Robert accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Good Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Westlake, Louisiana. He later became a member of the Philadelphia Church of God in Christ, where he served as senior deacon of the church.
Robert was a 1958 graduate of Mossville High School and married the love of his life “Lillie Mae Henry”. To this union, three children were born “Rhonda, Reginald, and Ramona”. As a long-distance truck driver for over 35 years, he was previously employed by Cesco (formerly Brown & Ferris, Ind., -BFI), Carr Trucking, and later retired from Chemical Waste Management.
