He also volunteered his time as a docent at the High Museum and in his local Kiwanis club. Adam also loved to travel and attended the Olympic games in London, Brazil, and South Korea with the Atlanta Pin Club. An avid history and preservation buff, he was committed to preserving the history of his hometown community of Cabbagetown, taught local government at the college level, and was a voracious reader.

Adam, you made a huge impression on my life. You were genuine, intelligent, loyal, and had the incredible ability to connect with the people around you. You made us all feel good without even trying. Your positive demeanor, smile, and infectious laugh will always be fresh in my mind. As someone has already said, you were the best of us. I’ll always remember our late night study/paper writing sessions during our MPA program and meals downtown. I think I spent more time with you those couple of years than anyone, outside of my roommates and Kati. I appreciate you always showing up to support our Georgia College Alumni events, and staying late just so we could hang out and catch up. That’s the type of person you were. We are all lucky to have known you. You were truly one of a kind. Kati and I are heartbroken. We love you you and miss you, Adam

Adam, I’ll always be thankful for your friendship. Many late nights and meals shared in Milledgeville, and fun times at GC alumni events, and the many texts and phone calls after. You always seemed close, even though our lives grew distant. I’m proud to say you were my friend because of the way you treated everyone, and the joy you could bring others by just being you. Genuine, loyal, intelligent, and painfully funny. Our hearts are broken but we take comfort knowing that you are in the arms of Jesus. Prayers for your family and friends who are mourning the loss of one of the most amazing people we have ever known. We miss you and love you, Adam.

-Matt and Kati

Adam was the most positive person that I've ever met in my life. He never failed to put a smile on everyone's face; Adam lighted up the room everywhere he went and was always encouraging us to achieve our goals and always believed in us. It was a honor and a pleasure to have him as our SYL mentor. May he rest in peace.

The world is a little less bright without you in it today and at the same time know heaven is brighter because you are there.

Thank you for so many wonderful memories at Georgia College & State University, at the State Capitol and in Young Gamechangers along with every moment we got to share in between. Thank you mainly for your positive attitude, friendship and your heart for service. You have and will continue to inspire others by the life you lived.

Missing you today and praying for all those who loved you. God bless, buddy.

Adam was truly such a light to be around. I participated in SYL in the 2016 cohort, and he never ceased to put a smile on our faces. His love for service truly inspired me then, and it continues to inspire me now. I am praying that God comforts you all during this time of loss.

My brother, Adam. Words cannot describe the esteem with which I held you, nor will time diminish the admiration I hold for you. I feel so damn proud to have been a part of your journey. I feel selfish for saying it, because I know you have gone forth to a greater place, but I will miss so much about you: Your laugh, your counsel in times of need, and your general zeal for life. I will await with eagerness the day when we meet again, in a land devoid of suffering and sorrow. You were truly the best of us, and you will be sorely missed by so many; but, we will always treasure the memories you left us with. I will forever call you my brother, until we meet again.
