The world lost an absolute amazing, one of a kind, beautiful, selfless soul. He had such a big heart who loved everyone and everything he came in contact with. He was the life of the party, greeting everyone with a great big smile and the best bear hug one could give. He was the kind of guy that you could talk to on a rough day and you would walk away with a smile and feeling positive.
His big heart had a large place in his heart for music and animals. They both were a big part of his life. He was such an amazing drummer who influenced many. He was the drummer in the bands Pennant Race, Desoto Jones and Kiska. Due to his love of music and being in bands, his friendships grew and made fantastic, long lasting relationships with a lot of people.
He was a big animal lover and an advocate of rescuing animals. Wanting to give them the best home especially if we were their last chance. He had rescued 4 retired racing greyhounds. It was never even a question of can we or should we take them, it was a question of can we take them home today. He always dreamed about owning a farm to rescue animals of any kind and give them a second chance.
His motorcycles became a big part of his life within the last few years. They really brought him a lot of joy, to go out and ride with friends or by himself.
He loved everyone that was in his life dearly and cherished all of his relationships. He talked about stories of adventures quite frequently. Adam would like to be remember him as loving, happy, free spirited, badass, with a big heart Adam that we all know and love, and not to sweat the small stuff. He lives on in all of us with our memories, stories, and in our hearts.
