Adam Sallee, the youngest son of early day pioneers, R. G. and Neller Sallee, was born January 22, 1917 in Collinsville, OK. He graduated from Central High School and received his degrees in vocal music and agriculture from Oklahoma A & M in 1940. When World War II began, he volunteered joining the 10th Armored Division. While visiting an USO Center in Nashville, TN, he met and later married Katherine Shearer of Indianapolis, Indiana. In September of 1944 he departed for Europe participating in the Battle of the Bulge on Christmas day.

After returning from the war, he and Katherine farmed in Indiana and began their family. In 1955, they moved to Oklahoma to continue the Sallee Dairy operation on the west edge of Collinsville. In addition to being a local dairyman, he was a Farm Bureau insurance agent and was manager of the Farmer's Co-op for two years. He also served on the Oklahoma Associated Milk Producers Board, the Regional Associated Milk Producers Board, and the Tulsa County Farm Bureau Board. He was a member of Farm House Fraternity while at A & M. He also served many years on the Collinsville Fair Board.

Throughout his life, he has been a member of the Methodist Church. Whether it was in the capacity of choir director, quartet member, trustee board member or teaching a Sunday School class, he continues to be an active church member.

Joining him for this 90th birthday celebration will be his children and their families: Susan Worstell of Collinsville; Berbyl Hagar of Tulsa; Becky Stotler of Choctaw; Robert Sallee of Okmulgee and Mary Sallee of Norman.
