Adrian (aka) A-Man,
Knowing you and Nancy these past 40 years has been a great honor. Your friendship meant the world to me. Our trips to Myrtle Beach for the “World Amateur Golf Championship,” our trip to Canada fishing on a remote lake, our many local fishing trip’s where we rarely caught anything. Many, many good times at GSW....
Donna and I so enjoyed our Cruises with you and Nancy and were so touched when you both came to Lake Tahoe for our wedding.
You will always be in our hearts and thoughts. God bless and keep you always.
RIP my friend 🙏

After moving to Ladera I met Nancy and Adrian and we became great friends. Adrian was always so much fun and we all enjoyed the same things.
He left so many happy memories and was one of the best men I have ever known.
He loved Nancy with all his heart and continued to take care of her with all he had.
RIP Sweet Friend!

We all love Adrian. What a great guy! We shared so many fun times and trips, Phoenix, San Francisco, Vegas, DC. Lucky us to have those memories and to have shared them with Nancy G and Adrian. Bill, Ron and Shirley and many others. What fun we had the year we “toured Fort Worth snd Dallas” on Sunday afternoons. We love you Adrian and know you are smiling down on your beautiful Nancy G and your family and many friends.

Our condolences to Nancy and family. We shall always remember what a great person Adrian was and how much we enjoyed being in his company.

We shall never forget the monthly poker games, dinners and fellowship.

We laugh every time when we remember Adrian saying "this hand cannot lose."

We will miss him.
