Lens Adapters for K-r?

Just purchased the K-r. Looking forward to many happy years with it.

My late-father had a Canon EOS, with various lenses, that was given to me.

It came with 3 lenses that I would like to use with my K-r if I can. They are:
  • Tamron SP AF 90mm F2.8 type (Model 72E [non-Di]) (55mm)
  • Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens (58mm)
  • Canon EF 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6 USM lens (58mm)
Are there adapters that I may use to access these lenses?

Thanks for your help and guidance.


P.s. Note that I'm new to this whole SLR world, so keeping it simple for me would be appreciated.

You can't use EOS lenses on Pentax cameras, but you could sell them and get some Pentax equivalents, respectively:

Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro Autofocus Lens AF272P700 B&H Photo
Pentax SMC DA 18-135mm F/3.5-5.6 ED AL (IF) DC WR Lens 21977 B&H
Pentax SMCP-DA 55-300mm f/4-5.8 ED Autofocus Lens 21720 B&H

The same Tamron lens is available in the Pentax mount
