Adam worked numerous jobs including tower maintenance, roofing, concrete work, carpentry work, construction, plumbing, operating heavy equipment, electrical, heating and air along with metal fabrication. He truly was a “jack of all trades.”
He was a member of the Morrill County Fair Board and participated in many 4-H activities as a youth and adult.
Adam was always full of ideas, tinkering, building projects along with remodeling his house completely. He always was willing to lend a helping hand for anything. Adam enjoyed hunting, fishing, woodworking, riding dirt bikes. He had a great love for the outdoors and taking adventures with his boys, raising animals including several exotic ones. His sense of adventure lead him to do a few skydiving trips as well.
His greatest joy of all was his two sons. Adam was a tremendous father and uncle to his nieces and nephews. Family was very important, and he cherished being with everyone. Adam always loved to make people smile and laugh so he would continuously tell jokes and give you a hard time.
