Obituary: Kenneth Neal Adams --"Keltic Ken" --passed away peacefully in Fresno, CA on March 22, 2015, at the age of 63, after a long, courageous battle with cancer.  Ken was born on January 28, 1952, in Harrisville, MI, to Hollie and Mary Adams .

Ken had a great love for Australia and treasured the time he spent there as a youth. He had planned to get dual citizenship as his mother was born in Sydney, Australia. He was looking forward to returning to his old stomping grounds in the future.

His passion for Celtic Christian music fostered a love for Ireland and a desire to visit one day.

Ken loved to travel and hitchhiked across the country twice,which yielded many entertaining stories,which he enjoyed relaying enthusiastically.

Ken had a heart for people and enjoyed donating his time and energy to many ministries and causes, to further proclaim the name of Jesus.

With his gregarious personality, he made friends everywhere he went.

Ken had a 30 year long career in radio broadcasting. He was instrumental in getting KDUV FM, in Visalia, CA, on the air in 1991. He also was the Station Manager at KRDU AM, in Dinuba, CA,from 1995 to 2012 .KRDU was the first commercial Christian radio station in the nation. For many years, Ken was the voice of the Fresno Rescue Mission, Evangel Home and Feed My Sheep Ministries weekly broadcasts. He shared his love for Celtic Christian music through his online radio station, Celtic Christian Spirit,from 2000 to 2014,which is now being managed by his daughter.

He is preceded in death by his parents. Ken is survived by his

wife Cathy; and daughter Christina.

A memorial service will be held at the G.L.Johnson Chapel at Peoples Church in Fresno, CA, on Saturday, April 18, 2015,at 2:00 p.m.; a  reception will follow.  Remembrances may be sent to Ken's church, Third Day Fresno, 4124 W. Fig Tree Lane, Fresno, CA 93722, to help the family with expenses.

Ken's internet radio,


  1. Ag Criost An Siol, Ag Criost and fomhar
    With Christ of the seed, with Christ of the harvest

    I n-Iothlainn De, go dtugtar Sinn
    In the granary of God, may we be taken

    Ag Criost an Mhuir, ag Criost an t-iasc
    With Christ of the sea, with Christ of the fishes

    I lionta De go gcastar sinn,
    In the lines of God may we be entwined.

    O fhas go h-aois, is o aois go bas
    From growth to age and from age to death

    Do dha laimh a Chriost anall tharainn
    Your two hands o Christ hither draw us.

    O bhas go crioch, ni crioch ach athfhas
    From death to the end, not the end, but all eternity

    I bParrthas na nGrast go rabhaimid
    In paradise of the blessed may we reside.

  2. Farewell to a warm, gracious man.
