Mace was born on May 29,1964, in Houston, and was a graduate of the University of Houston. He was both a teacher and student of life and all of its wonders. He devoted his days to teaching as a kindergarten teacher at the Ann and Nate Levine Academy in Dallas. His ability to see through a child’s eyes gave him a connection to his students that fostered the mutual love they shared with him. Mace spent his free time enjoying a long-time hobby of bowling, traveling nationally playing in different tournaments and was a member of the United States Bowling Congress and the International Gay Bowling Organization. He was also a previous member of the Turtle Creek Chorale. Mace was blessed in finding a devoted and loving partner who complemented and enhanced his life. Tim Todd, an accomplished Fort Worth glass artist,opened Mace’s eyes to a means of expressing his creative and playful side. Through Tim’s mentoring and encouragement, Mace became a talented glass artist and a founding committee member of SiNaCa Studios School of Glass and a member of the Texas Glass Artists Association. Some of his very first creations were gifts he gave to raise funds at the school he loved, Levine Academy. His most recent pieces were sold at SiNaCa’s glass runway show held at Neiman Marcus the weekend before his passing. His last but certainly not least love was for his precious dog, Samantha, whose love and devotion to Mace were evident each day when he came home from work. Mace’s life and his passions;touched so many through his love, sensitivity, humor and friendship. His smile and continuous humming and laughter will be so very missed in this world. He was preceded in death by his father, Bill Clarence Adams. Survivors: His loving partner, Tim Todd his pup, Samantha; mother, Lin Adams-Johnson and step-father, Mike Johnson; sister, Kay Lin Richardson; brother, Dock Clifton Adams; several nieces, nephews, cousins; and too many friends to count.
