I am deeply saddened to hear of Adam's passing. I had many chances to watch him perform on the IPFW stage and I really got to know him when he was a student in my playwriting class. He was a talented and versatile theatre artist . . . and a sweet man. I was so looking forward to see what he would accomplish next. May his memory be for a blessing.

Adam was one of the very first people I met when I was touring the theatre department at IPFW. His confidence and genuine friendliness ultimately made the department feel like home. I looked up to him and his talent. He most has made an impact on my life and will continue to have a place in my heart. Thoughts and prayers for your family.

Adam was loved and respected by so many. It is hard to believe that God took such a kind soul so young. I consider myself very lucky to have known him.

Adam and I did theater together years ago. He was an amazing man; talented, hard-working, funny, silly, but above all he was sweet and caring. He made so many people laugh onstage and off, and he brought joy to many people's lives. I am honored to have known Adam. He is missed, and my thoughts go out to all his friends and family.

You are all in my prayers. I had only met Adam once or twice, but know that he made an impact on so many people. He was a real treasure to so many. Hold on to all of the memories that you have shared over the years. May those memories sustain you for many years. May you always feel his presence in your lives until you see him again in Heaven.

Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart. For as long as there is a memory, they’ll live on in our hearts

Adam knew me by name. He shared of his excitement about the trip to Chicago with the graduating actors. A strong silence surrounded him, and I knew he had a heart for Jesus. So I believe he is okay, and has met Jesus face to face.

May God wrap you in His peace and strength, may you take comfort in knowing Adam touched many lives...seen and unseen. And may your faith be strengthened and made alive from the Jesus Adam knew, and now fully knows.

We are shocked and saddened to learn of Adam's home-going and it seems much too soon for one so young and so talented! For sure, Adam will not be forgotten by his Regent University family who loved him and so appreciated his selflessness!We are gathering today to share in his funeral service. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you today and in the days to come. May the Lord grant you His grace and strength to endure.

We just heard the terrible news today and are so deeply saddened. Adam was just a force-gentle, powerful, masterful all at once.
We will be at Regent 6/15 to share Adam's life.
