Adam had many hobbies that he loved which included fishing, bowling and dancing-his all-time favorite thing. Adam was quite the collector of antiques and other collectibles. He enjoyed everything about that hobby– the research, the tv programs, the history and conversations about it. He loved to drive to his vacation getaways and always wanted to take family along. Adam was a people person. He loved to talk and always thought he was right. He had the most to say when it was time to say goodbye or goodnight. You couldn’t get out the door fast with Adam. He was a giver and was always willing to help.
