I met Adam when my cousin Jacque married Adam’s daughter Heather. He has a larger than life presence. In 2012 he and my cousins Jacque and Nick Doucette , and Jacque’s son Nickolas visited my home in Maryland. We had a blast with them. I could easily tell how devoted Adam is to his family by the way he spoke of them ... all of them ... his wife Carole, his son and daughter, the Doucette’s including my Aunt Judy and Uncle Jack, and naturally his grandchildren. I never got to hear his radio show but I imagine it was lively and entertaining. A person of Adams statute will certainly be missed ... but he leaves powerful, wonderful memories to sustain those who love him. RIP Adam.

I had a unique spot in this mans life, somewhere between family and friend. It’s a good spot to be with Adam because you got caring and a direct order all in one. Hard to explain but it did me good. Adam, thank you for the advice and love you gave me. Thank you for not sugar coating the important information you felt I needed. I know you’re in a place where you can watch over us and help us as you’ve always have. My dad meant the world to me and I couldn’t see it until he had moved on. I feel you’re with him now. Please watch over all of us. We are what you’ve helped us become. Thank you Adam! Dads are a wonderful thing.

Adam was special. He had amazing presence, as did every member of his family. He was an important figure in my life, especially growing up. He gave me life advice usually seasoned with humor, which I think I needed. He and Carole were both good at making me laugh.
I will always remember gatherings at his home, and he and Carole made me feel like family. Those times brought joy to me and my family, and I cherish those memories as I will cherish my memories of Adam.

My childhood memories growing up in Coral Springs are sprinkled with the many great times my family spent with Adam, Carol, Heather and Billy. To me, what stood out above all else, was that Adam was a powerhouse entrepreneur. He had a powerful presence and his American spirit was always front and center. I marveled at his knowledge and ability to articulate every side of an issue. His heart was large and giving. I can remember many trips to Disney World driving in his light blue Cadillac. He had a contagious smile that made you smile. While I didn't see him very often in the past few years, I will be forever grateful that I knew him and the Clatsoff family.

I would like to wish my condolences to the whole family. Adam was such a warm hearted caring person. He was always in good spirits and always made everyone around him feel like they were important to him. He was always good to my brother and I growing up and he will be missed. I’m so glad I had him in my life growing up and I will never forget him.
