I have wonderful, fond memories of Adam from when our children (Annie) and Jack were in preschool together. We formed a dinner group and shared many happy evenings together as couples and as families. I’m so sorry to hear Adam was ill and has passed. He will be fondly remembered. Deepest sympathy to Rachel, Annie and all of Adams family.

We were neighbors of Adam in Evanston during great times of welcoming our children into the world. So many good times and laughter on Noyes Street it’s hard to pick one memory. I will forever miss the constant noise and activity of so many kids and parents who shared in the joy of our children. During an unusually hot summer day, my husband agreed to check in on a neighbors bird. The bird was only beloved to their daughter and not a species that would endure for long. This hot day it was discovered without A/C the bird met his maker. Adam was right there to make sure we gave this bird a proper burial, make a crafted and meaningful memorial and say prayers to the bird only a small girl could love. What followed this ceremony was laughter, jokes and a reminder of how special it is to have neighbors like Adam. We had jokes for years over this sweet bird, but it wasn’t about the bird it was finding humor and friendship in the small moments. Thank you Adam for the laughs and friendship.

I am deeply saddened to know of Adam’s passing, as he was such a bright spot in my childhood memories. Adam was my uncle, the wonderfully loving father of my two dearest cousins Annie and Rachel, and he attended our family reunions every year in the Outer Banks for many years. I will always remember how warm and friendly he was to everyone, and how he was quiet (for our family) but always had a kind word to say. He could make anyone laugh, most particularly his little girls, and I will always cherish my memories of his genuine smile and comforting personality—even though we only saw him once a year he could pick up conversation as easily as if we spoke much more frequently. I know he will be deeply missed by many, but I feel so fortunate to be able to hold even just a few special memories of such a special person.

Even though I have not seen Adam in many years, I have fond memories of him being so good to us in high school. When we were mere freshman, being a couple years older, he would cart us around to events and various other mischief, happily. Not sure how he put up with us; just another testament to the good man that he was even then. He was an unusually kind sole that I am sure there is a special place in heaven for! My condolences to all of the family!

I’m very sad. Adam was my next door neighbor on Noyes Street. He was as pleasant a person as you could meet. We would talk in our backyards about lawns, parenting, his crazy Springer Spaniel, and life in Evanston. He buried our parakeet.
My thoughts are with Annie and Rachel and Kim and the Krumholz family. I’m so sorry for your loss.

My memories of my cousin Adam are of a warm, loving, gentle soul. He was humble and grounded, with an easy laugh, and growing up I always appreciated that he didn't treat me (I being the youngest, and he being the second oldest, of eight cousins) as though I were an annoying kid who he resented having to spend time with. I always felt equally valued, and as an adult I recognize that as a powerful and lasting gift that Adam shared with me during my formative years. As a cousin and a quality human being, Adam is already missed, though I'm grateful that he's at peace. Holding his spirit in Beauty and Light, and the rest of our family in Love and Healing.

It is with a heavy heart that I write this in memory of Adam. Adam's love for his family will always be remembered as he spent many years attending our family gatherings at the Outer Banks. His kindness, peace, generosity, and compassion were evident, but I will never forget his joyous laugh that was light in and of itself. Annie and Rachel are both testaments to that kindness but also to that genuine light and joy.
Those few but special memories of my uncle, a special part of our family, will always have a space in my heart- a blessing to have known him.

On behalf of our family in PA, we share our heartfelt sadness on the passing of Adam. For many years Adam, Kimberly, Annie, and Rachel were a part of our annual extended family vacations to the Outer Banks. Our family, especially our two girls, looked forward to reuniting with their two cousins, and their Aunt and Uncle. We all fondly remember Adam as a gentle, warm soul - quick to laugh and just loved engaging in conversation as we all spent hours on the beach together. A special memory is watching Adam play in the ocean and the sand with his two precious daughters for however long they wanted to play! Adam's legacy lives on through the spirit he shares uniquely with each of his girls. Our peace is knowing that Adam is at rest with our loving and gracious God. "Life has to end. Love doesn't" Mitch Albom
