Adam was a kind, considerate young man, a good student, an accomplished athlete and an aspiring artist.  

The quick engaging "Adam Smile" was there for everyone and was usually accompanied by encouraging words for friends, family, new students, shy kids and ocassionally competitors on the athletic field.  Adam consistently demonstrated his ability to make adults, peers and children feel special and important.  In his 18 years Adam truly touched many lives.  

Like most teenagers, Adam had numerous activites and interests that were preferable to school work.  He used his time wisely and graduated with exemplary grades. He was looking forward to pursuing environmental studies at Lynchburg College.

A fierce competitor and talented athlete, Adam decided at an early age that soccer was his passion. He pursued that goal tirelessly.  Adam was fortunate to have quality coaches and skilled teammates, who were friends on and off the field.  Adam never wavered in his quest to realize his childhood dream of competing at the collegiate level for a quality program.  

In addition to his athletic interests, Adam had become an artist and entrepreneur.  During his senior year at Robinson Secondary School, he discovered an affinity for pottery.  This evolved into his contracting with local merchants to purchase and display his artwork in specialty stores.  

Adam will always be the best brother in the world to Nick, soulmate to Becca and the beloved son of Beverly and Jim.
