Adam married his best friend and soulmate, Neysa Tuma on October 27, 2013 and was a loving father. He was a loyal Cleveland Brown’s fan and enjoyed attending The Cleveland Indians games with loved ones and friends. Adam got a kick out of the simpler things in life and that included his cat, Gato, whom he always shared silly anecdotes. Adam loved music and strumming his guitar, making breakfast – his specialty was pancakes – and he enjoyed grilling out, camping, outdoor concerts and the ocean. Adam was always down to earth, approachable and loved laughing along to a good story or memory.
