Mourning the Loss of a Cherished Friend and Colleague

The Masters family has sadly said goodbye to one of its own. After a courageous battle, Panton Adams died from complications related to COVID-19 on the morning of Monday, February 1.

Adams joined The Masters School as a member of the security department eight years ago, in February 2013. His gentle spirit, caring ways, and love and dedication to the students and the School community made him a beloved and familiar face to all. He will be greatly missed.

“Panton represented the embodiment of our School’s mission. A true ‘power for good,’ he greeted students and teachers by name every morning with a warm and welcoming smile and radiated joy in all that he did,” said Head of School Laura Danforth. “Panton made every member of our School community feel safe, valued and cared for. Even as we grieve Panton’s loss, the love and light of his memory remain an enduring source of comfort and solace.”  

Adams, who was 64 years old, leaves behind his wife Crecencia and two daughters, to whom he was a loving, doting father.

There will be a virtual gathering for the Masters community next week to honor Panton's life and exceptional service to the School. Please click here for more information.
