Former Lake County Assessor Hank Adams, who resigned less than a week ago due to health reasons, passed away Sunday. The 77-year-old Adams had been battling cancer for over a year. Adams was the first Republican to hold countywide office in Lake County in over fifty years. Prior to being elected county assessor, Adams also served as St. John Township assessor for several years, and was elected to the Schererville Town Council before that.  A native of Tennessee, Adams became a longtime businessman in Lake County, as the owner of Adams Village TV in Gary and Barelli's Furniture on State Street in Hammond.  Funeral arrangements are pending.
