I served with Adam in Ely, NV during the fall/winter of 2000. He was a good man and one of the meekest I have ever met. To the family, my condolences. To Adam, serve well and enjoy your rest among the Saints both noble and great.

I was one of Adams mission companions in Las Vegas. He was a great person to work with and always had a smile on his face. I'm glad he can rest now.

I met Adam 18 years ago. Nothing got this great man down. Despite missing a semester in school, still graduated on time. He, Kelly and I went hiking and backpacking. He was always looking for the next adventure in his life. my favorite picture of us is leaving to backpack up Stanley Cannon, a trip that I will never forget.
