Twenty-three-year-old avid outdoorsman William Adams caught this massive flathead catfish around 3 AM on Tuesday, September 7th in Raleigh. William caught this fish of a lifetime, just days before he passed away unexpectedly on September 10th while working in Jacksonville, Florida.
William graduated with a BS in Construction Management from ECU and had recently started a new job at David Allen Company, which he loved.
William enjoyed anything outdoors and spend most of his leisure time fishing, hunting, or playing golf. He had many friends from all walks of life and seemed to be able to relate well to most anyone. He had a good sense of humor and a kind spirit. William is survived by his father and mother, Craig and Nancy Adams; brothers Harris and Edward and sister, Abby; grandmother, Nannette Atkinson; and uncle and aunt, John and Courtney Atkinson.
We love you and we will miss you, William.
