"Adam was a loved and cherished son, husband, father, brother, friend, teacher, and mentor to all who knew him. He loved God with all his heart. He devoted himself to the good of others in every way.  He loved being near God in nature and left this life doing exactly what he craved:  adventure with God in nature.  He will be deeply missed by all of us.  Adam wouldn't want us to live in sorrow but live each day with passion, excitement, fervor, and love."
