Ruth Wilcox Adelstone
9/28/1947 - 9/14/2014

After a short, but courageous battle with ovarian cancer, Ruth passed away on Sunday, September 14th, surrounded by her loving family.

Ruth was born and raised in Tucson and attended Tucson High School, where she met the love of her life, Jeff. After earning her degree from the University of Arizona, she was a life-long Wildcat fan. Ruth loved to travel all over the world including trips to Africa, China and Europe. Ruth had a wicked sense of humor and her laughter was infectious.

She was also a talented artist who was known for her love of vibrant colors. Ruth loved animals and spent much of her time volunteering at animal rescues. Most importantly, Ruth was a fiercely devoted mom and nana.

Everyone who met Ruth felt her loving spirit. Her door was always open and there was always a seat at her table. Until the very end, she greeted everyone with her beautiful smile and outstretched arms. Ruth always saw the goodness in others. In her life, it was her mission to make everyone feel comfortable, loved, and at home.

Our hearts are broken and our lives will never be the same. Ruth is survived by her sister, Ann; brothers, Ted (Alice) and Clarence (Angie); daughters, Kim (John), Stacey (Terence) and Toni and grandchildren, Kendall, Trennon, Cole, Travis, Emma, Drew and Samantha, plus many nieces, nephews and friends. It brings us comfort to know that Ruth, and her husband of 46 years, Jeff, are together again in heaven, sitting on Hawaiian beaches, drinking Pina Coladas.

 

Jeffrey A. Adelstone

On Wednesday, October 23rd, Jeff passed away peacefully at the age of 66.

He was surrounded by his loving family. Jeff was born in Los Angeles, but was raised in Tucson. He attended Tucson High School where he met the love of his life, Ruth. He graduated from high school in 1965. He then attended the University of Arizona where he earned a Bachelor's degree in Education and a Master's degree in Business.

Jeff played the saxophone in the UofA Pride of Arizona marching band and he had the privilege of performing with the band in the first Super Bowl halftime show. Jeff's passion for the Arizona Wildcats was well known.

Jeff started his business, AFS Tax and Planning Group from his garage in 1975. His business grew into a highly successful and well respected establishment in Tucson.

Jeff's alphabet soup of designations included an E.A., C.F.P., A.B.A., A.T.A., A.T.P., E.C.S., and C.S.A. One significant honor in his life was his opportunity to meet George W. Bush in the Oval Office.

His expertise in tax, accounting, and financial planning impacted many in the community. Jeff lived his professional and personal life with the utmost honesty and integrity.

Everyone who encountered Jeff experienced his generosity. Jeff enjoyed many travels and was blessed to spend summers with Ruth and his family in his favorite place, Hawaii. He will be remembered for his sense of humor, selflessness, and kindness.

Above everything, Jeff loved his family. He is survived by his beautiful wife, Ruth; brother, Jay (Diane); sister, Judy (Fred), daughters, Kim (John), Stacey (Terence), Toni and grandchildren, Kendall, Trennon, Cole, Travis, Emma, Drew and Samantha, plus many nieces, nephews, friends, and colleagues.
