My condolences to Jacquie and the kids. Adam was a dedicated family man who loved them very much.
I knew him through his other love, hockey. We were volunteers with the Wexford Raiders and went on many trips together to watch games all over Southern Ontario.
I will miss him very much. He was a very good friend of mine. One of those friendships that can pick up like were it was only a week ago when it was over a year since the last time we had seen each other.

Please accept my deepest condolences, My thoughts and prayers are with your family through this great sorrow. I worked with Adam for a long time at FYS and shared many experiences that frontline staff usually share plus a few that seemed to be unique to our situations. Adam was a rock; despite occasionally crossing a debris filled walkway on his way into work he always started and ended shifts with a smile, a shrug and an attitude that said I'm here, I'll do what I can the best that I can and then I go home. And by going home I always knew that's where his heart was; he always spoke so proudly and lovingly of his wife and three amazing children. I've loved seeing his pictures and hearing him talk of his family adventures over the years, please know that he loved you all completely. He will be greatly missed.

My dearest husband,
It is IMPOSSIBLE to share just one memory when every single memory I have is you. We truly live a life of shared everything.. hearts and souls. I see you everyday in the three gifts you left me. My heart aches to be with you.. you are so much more than words can ever say. Everything good a person can possess , you managed to have inside you. Most couples Argue about the little things, the little annoying habits but not us.. we embrace those little things and love each other even more because of them. I WILL see you again one day.. I will find you just as I did that November day back in 2002. I love you.. I will always love you, you are my everything and I will raise our kids to remember they have a daddy.. a daddy who adores them even though he cannot hold them right now. A daddy who is watching them from spirit world until the day we can all be together again.
I love you to the moon and back
Until we see each other again my love , my heart ❤️

To Jacquie and the kids, I share my deepest sympathies in the loss of your husband and father. I knew Adam when he was a charter member of a hockey forum online whose handle was known as 'Pepsihead'. I even met him a few times in our hockey travels when he followed his Wexford Raiders and I my Kingston Voyageurs. Even after the Raiders, he and I crossed paths. There was always something special about him when I met and briefly talked with him. He always had one or both of his kids with him and it was clear he so adored them. He was a fine man who was honest, sincere, engaging and a total gentlemen. We will all miss him.
