Adam’s greatest challenge in life began at birth, as he weighed just 3 pounds. He thrived to live through his great will and love of his family. Adam was our gentle giant who grew to be 6’4”, with a peaceful and pleasant presence. His words were few but his wisdom was great. He held a quiet disposition and had a caring heart, along with a great personality. His sense of humor was his zest for life. He was a peaceful man with no judgment or enemies. He had compassion for animals and loved online gaming, with which he had friends world-wide. He loved chasing Pokemon with his closest and dearest friend Lance Wisner. How grateful we are to Lance. Adam cherished the friendships he had with Neil Johnson, Jeff Coshow, and Charlie Martin. Adam’s biggest adventure was being able to live in Alaska with the Weeds family. They loved him as their own and helped to achieve employment at the animal shelter. He enjoyed working for Oakview Adult Homes and even became his sister’s favorite co-worker there. Adam was grateful for the time he had with his father James, Grandma Mary, and Grandpa Merv and the rest of their family. Adam always felt Leon was his “dad” and held great respect for him and his family. His siblings were his Bestest Friends--Ashley, his Angel; Scotty, his playmate and “partner in crime”; Kristina, his hugger of hugs; and Jessica, his mentor of intellect and philosopher of life. Adam enjoyed the company of nephews, and niece - Dylan, Donavan, Rozlynn, Arek, and Oren. He loved you all so much. All the people in Adam’s life helped him achieve what he had become as a person. Thank you so much to my family for the love and support in Adam’s life. He wasn’t just my Adam, he was ours.
We love you all,
Leon, Kati, Ashley, Scotty, Krissy, and Jessica
