Sincerest condolences to Jill and the entire Brockus family. 54 is far too young. Adam's loss is a tragedy to everyone who's life he touched.

Adam was one of my best friends in college, and anytime we were able to get together after college was always great. I met much of the Brockus clan at our college graduation dinner. It's sad to think how many people were at that dinner and now are dearly missed. Though our families are quite different in many ways, the general warmth and decency made for a very pleasant celebration.

I also fondly remember celebrating with Adam at when he got his graduate degree, "Johnny Guitar," his bachelor weekend before he married Jill, and the unfortunately only time he got to meet my wife and son and visit our home.

This is a terrible loss, but I wish joy in memories of Adam and comfort to all.

Adam had a contagious smile and was always using it at work. My condolences and prayers for comfort.

Adam was such a gregarious fellow. One of our fondest memories is when he and Jill were visiting the East Coast, he invited the entire NY/Philly family to see his brother-in-law's show on Broadway titled "Johnny Guitar." It was a monumental time for all of us.

Yes indeedy, Adam always did things in a big way. Though he always had Jill to bring him down to earth. The two balanced one another perfectly. It was a grave shock to hear what happened to him over the last six months. It is the biggest crisis in our family at this time during Covid, when so many are suffering. He did not deserve any of this hardship considering his great goodwill towards others. Jill has been amazingly strong through it all. Never allowing the family to worry.

Adam had the biggest smile of anyone I knew and it genuinely came from his heart. When he and Jill fell in love, you knew he was the shining light she needed. They raised a family back east. They had some amazing trips together, yet finally found Brementon. It became their endearing home. It was great to visit and get the full Seattle/Brementown experience from one of Adam's tours of the two cities. His tours included a surreal moment to contemplate Mount Hood in the distance from a charming Seattle hill. When I think of him, I think of his charm, his wit and most of all his smile. May we all be greeted by his open arms on the other side. Love you Adam.

So sorry to hear, condolences and prayers to his family. It's a loss to this Democratic community. I first met him as a Bremerton resident at a Plan C ferry advocates public meeting, and later at local Dem Precinct Caucus meetings when he was a councilman. His passionate activism and leadership was impressive and tireless. He helped with the endorsement of my candidacy as a utility Commissioner and grateful to him for his networking facilitation. Aside from that enjoyed visiting with him at public events, local Manette history gatherings. His valuable contributions will be missed, but may he rest in peace. Mary Sevilla, Bremertonian

So many good memories - carpooling to executive board meetings, seeing and hearing his joy when he announced that he was becoming a grandfather, his meaningful input at meetings, his warmth and friendliness. When I hear his name, I always see his smile. He will be missed.

My heart goes out to Adam's family. I have many great memories of Councilman Brockus over the years. I remember fondly his excitement when he found out he was going to become a grandpa.

My favorite memory of Adam by far is of him "rapping" on the stage of the Manette Saloon. I believe it was at a political fundraiser or kickoff. I took a video with my phone and he made me promise never to show it to anyone.

Adam was a very good man and I am sad at his passing. May his memory be a blessing.

I have known Adam for many years. We were charter members of the Bremerton Ferry Advisory Committee; in fact there were times when we WERE the FAC! He was so intelligent and well informed and my go to guy for knowing everything that was going on! Can't even tell you how much I will miss him!

My sincerest heartfelt sympathies to all of Adam’s family upon his passing. Adam was a stalwart community servant - city council, advocacy for ferry service, and dedicated Democrat. His passing leaves a hole in the soul of our community that will never be the same.
