From the moment that he could walk Adam ran wherever he went. But he was never in too much of a hurry to stop and ask how his family members were or to rub his pets' tummies. He spent many boyhood hours with close friends swimming in the lake, lazing in the sun, and building an amazing fort by the railway. He was a gifted pitcher for Chilliwack Minor League Baseball, helping his team win both provincial and Western Canadian championships. When he was older he was always on call to give a ride, move furniture, to console, encourage, or entertain. He fell in love with a beautiful girl.

He had a great work ethic and was respected by his bosses and co-workers.

He loved growing up in Chilliwack said he never wanted to leave this beautiful place. Adam was a burning bright light who, in his short life, was well loved and loved well. Henderson's Funeral Home in care of arrangements.
