Visitation for former Savannah Mayor Floyd Adams Junior will be held Thursday.
Adams died on Saturday at Candler Hospital of undisclosed causes, according to spokesperson Scott Larson. He was a democrat and served as the city's first African-American mayor, serving two terms from 1996 through 2003. He was re-elected in 1999, but was prevented from seeking re-election in 2003 due to term limits.
Born on May 11, 1945, in Savannah, Adams attended St. Pius X Catholic High School and received his college degree from Armstrong Atlantic State University.
Visitation will be Thursday at Resurrection of Our Lord Catholic Church from 6 to 8 p.m.
The funeral service is scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday at St. James Catholic Church.
Adams leaves behind a wife and two grown children. He was 68 years old.
