COARSEGOLD – A Celebration of Life has been scheduled for hometown boy Token Adams on Saturday, Oct. 26 from noon to 4 p.m. at the Coarsegold Community Center.
The heartfelt celebration for the former mountain area resident and Jemez Ranger District Engine Captain Token Adams is being planned by family and friends in the wake of his death in New Mexico, following his disappearance on Friday, Aug. 30. One week later, Token was recovered by search and rescue. It’s believed he died as the result of an ATV accident while on duty.
Token grew up in Coarsegold and was a 1990 graduate of Yosemite High School. Prior to his work as a firefighter for the U.S. Forest Service, Token was a Navy Seal.
The Celebration of Life is set to include an open floor for people to join in and tell stories and remember Token. His cousin, Christina Adams, is in the process of making a video in Token’s honor and is seeking photographs of him and his friends together, along with video clips from people talking about the influence Token had on them.
Organizers, including Nicole Dugovic, are also looking for help setting up and cleaning up after the event.
“We are doing a potluck and asking that everyone bring their favorite dish that will feed at least four people,” says Nicole. “The family will be providing desserts and refreshments.”
Token is survived by his wife, Heidi, a 3-year-old son, Tristan, and newborn daughter Isla Skye. He leaves behind his children Kristy and Shaun who live in Washington. He will be missed by innumerable friends and all his family, including mother Ieteke Anderson, sister Kobie Anderson-Arranda, father Ken Adams, and brothers Cruz and Kyle Adams.
